How to Chart Somatic Development

One of the nicest things about reaching the end of a journey is that it’s just the beginning of another!

In the seventh module of the Embodied Early Developmental Movement and Attachment Therapy program, we’re going to be looking at everything we learned in the previous six modules, working to incorporate those lessons and powerful techniques into your practice.

This is going to be the culmination of all we will have been doing for over two years. In the previous modules, we charted the developmental progress during the first year of life and beyond, learning to incorporate tools for observation and the redirection of the individual, child, or family. This is where it all comes together.

Developing the practice you want isn’t easy. There are so many things that you need to consider when you are incorporating movement, attachment therapy, and somatics into your practice. To help, the entire group will be taking a look at your individual practice, doing group exercises to support you.

The reason why you started doing the Embodied Early Developmental Movement and Attachment Therapy program in the first place is because you wanted to help people. This requires you to be able to chart people’s somatic development and conduct a developmental movement assessment. You must be able to look at your clients and see what they missed in their early childhood and how you can help them develop a stronger sense of self and the ability to navigate their life’s problems with greater ease, power, and self-understanding.

Another component that we will be learning to incorporate is conducting attachment therapy and attachment behavior interviews with your clients so that you can see where they may have missed love and security in their early days. You can then work with them specifically to strengthen and bolster these places they missed in their early-development, improving their ability to relate with others and themselves.

It’s profound when you can sit with people with a loving presence and a clear, professional, practiced idea of how you can help people. This work is priceless, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

The Embodied Early Developmental Movement & Attachment Therapy training course is specifically designed for psychologists and therapists, movement professionals, educators, and body workers. It is also a profound training program for parents. This is how I started my journey in this work.

Over the next two years, this course will be introducing concepts that might completely change the way that you view yourself and the way that you work with your clients. This kind of personal growth can be remarkable, leading to changes in your life that you can’t even imagine right now. I invite you to join us on this journey in the seventh and last module of The Whole Person: Embodied Early Developmental Movement & Attachment Therapy Intensive training course!
