This ground-breaking 4 day workshop will explore the process of affect regulation, attachment dynamics and the affects of trauma & repair on the developing brain and body.

Learn how to help & support children and adolescents who are presenting with depression, ADHD, Aspergers, Rage attacks, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Bulimia & Anorexia by remapping the trauma in the Body, from Fear to Safety by cellular memory transformation through Biosynthesis Body work and recent research in neurobiology.

Through the lens of Biosynthesis Somatic Psychotherapy the presenter will guide you through the neurobiology of under-supported developmental phases and the fight, flight, freeze and submission of trauma which can often bring younger clients to therapy. With an emphasis on a meaningful somatic therapeutic contact and through an exploration of movement patterns, sensation, postures and other non-verbal cues, you will learn how to become ‘somatically attuned’ to your child & adolescent clients. Through the Biosynthesis method you will learn new ways to help this age group build self-regulation & resilience, personal power & adaptive meaning-making.

This 4 day training is signed by the founder of Biosynthesis & International expert on human trauma & recovery, Dr. David Boadella & validated by the International Institute for Biosynthesis in Switzerland. Biosynthesis Psychotherapy has been scientifically recognised by the European Association for Psychotherapy since 1998.

Working with Trauma and the Process of Transformation.
Bridges between Neuroscience, the Somatic Body and Biosynthesis Somatic Psychotherapy.

11th September 2019
10am-5pm

Venue: Primary Care Psychotherapy, Suite 1 & 2, Vista Primary Care,
Naas, Co Kildare

Fee €100 Early Bird if booked before 30th June €80

Are you working with complex trauma clients & struggling to understand how to include somatic interventions effectively in order to help your client build regulation & resilience? Would you like to understand more about the bridge between Neuroscience, Somatic Psychology, Biosynthesis Somatic Psychotherapy and the process of transformation in the physical, emotional and somatic body.

In this workshop you will be introduced to Biosynthesis Somatic Psychotherapy and why Somatic Psychology is essential for helping clients work through the dysregulated affect which accompanies developmental trauma. ‘Talk therapy’ can have limited effectiveness for clients with somatised symptoms, dissociative defences and excruciating feeling of shame. Learn how Biosynthesis Somatic Psychotherapy works beyond the pathology, from the resources to the fragmentation to help develop a deep process of co-regulation between therapist and client. We will explore Biosynthesis interventions that enhance embodiment and wellbeing in the client. These interventions which, enhance embodiment in trauma treatment expand therapeutic experience beyond the ‘neurosis’ and beyond where words can take a client.

Biosynthesis Somatic Psychotherapy has been scientifically recognised by the European Association for Psychotherapy since 1998.

Advanced Post-Qualifying Certificate in
Biosynthesis Somatic Trauma & depth-psychology oriented Psychotherapy

Course Duration 1 Year
January 2020-November 2020
Closing Date for Applications: Friday 28th June 2019

Austin Breslin BSc MIAHIP MIACP SIACP SIAHIP MIIBS ECP & Primary Care Psychotherapy Ltd in partnership with the International Institute for Biosynthesis in Switzerland www.biosynthesis.org

Biosynthesis is an in-depth Relational Somatic Psychotherapy and Depth Psychology Oriented Psychotherapy which forges a link between somatic or body existence, psychological existence and spiritual essence. This is an experiential training, which offers the therapist and client an opportunity to experience greater relational depth. Development of Observation, Formulation Skills and Therapeutic Presence for the therapist will be greatly enhanced.

Biosynthesis represents a new approach in Somatic Psychotherapy. Founder of Biosynthesis, Dr. David Boadella is one of the pioneers and leading representatives of work with the Body in Psychotherapy. Dr. David Boadella (founder of Biosynthesis Body Psychotherapy) is an International Expert in the field of Human Trauma and Mental Health Recovery. He brought a new paradigm into Body Psychotherapy, ten years before Trauma was recognised by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, emphasising the importance of contact in the here and now, to provide enough containment for traumatised clients to give boundaries to the over-flooding feelings. This paradigm has been adopted by Peter Levine, Babette Rothschild and Pat Ogden, all of whom have published extensively on Body Psychotherapy and Trauma, including many articles in Energy & Character: the international journal of Biosynthesis.
Many aspects of Biosynthesis theories and Structure Work have close parallels in recent Neuroscience findings about mirror neurons, empathy and self-regulation of the autonomic nervous system. His method has been developed with his wife Silvia Specht Boadella over the last 50 years and currently continues to expand its range of practical applications.

Biosynthesis is a pre-and perinatal psychology, a somatic psychotherapy and a transpersonal psychology that regards the human being in the interaction and integration of his multidimensional aspects: his body, emotions, sexuality, beliefs, desires, intentionality, needs, dreams, histories, family, relationships, spirituality etc.

In Brussels in October 1998, Biosynthesis was the first Body Psychotherapy method to receive scientific recognition from the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP).

The mission of the Irish Institute of Biosynthesis is to create space and integration for the establishment of this method in the Professional and Therapeutic environment of Psychotherapists in Ireland.

Bio Danielle Griffin

For the past year I have been consulting for camps around Asia and Africa with SeriousFun’s Global Partnership Program to help bring life-changing experience of camp to children living with HIV and other serious illnesses in resource-limited countries around the world – totally free of charge. SeriousFun reaches beyond borders and limitations of illness to help foster independence, resilience and personal growth and see beyond their medical condition.

I have worked for Barretstown for the last thirteen years in several roles, most recently as the Volunteer Director.  Barretstown is a programme that delivers therapeutic recreation activities to children with serious illness and their families to help rebuild their lives after serious illness of bereavement. Barretstown is part of the Serious Fun Children’s Network – a global network of camps who deliver therapeutic programs for children living with serious illness.

I have worked with the HSE in a Special Care Unit, I’ve worked with adults with intellectual disability and worked in a hospital setting in Australia as a care assistant.

From working with a wide variety of people in different sectors, I felt guided to a more holistic approach with people to find happiness and fulfilment within themselves.    By allowing space, guidance and time for people to explore a range of yoga practices I have seen people have remarkable results as well as having experienced these for myself.

I am a Hatha Yoga Teacher since 2015, teaching yoga to all levels and abilities This practice incorporates breath work, meditation as well as physical practice and technique.

I have completed 200 hours of Ashtanga style teacher training in India with Himalaya Yoga Valley, Goa  under the guidance of Lalit Kumar who has studied with all the fathers of yoga himself, such as Sri BKS Iyengar and Sri K Pattabhi Jois, Sri Sharath Jois and Sri BNS Iyengar and still with Sharath Jois.  This was such a humbling and profound learning.  I travelled around India trying various yoga classes and meeting various teachers to broaden my insights and learning from the land of where the ancient tradition of yoga was born.

I have completed training with Rainbow Kids for Children’s Yoga as a children’s yoga teacher.  I believe when children learn techniques for self-health, relaxation, and inner fulfillment, they can navigate life’s challenges with a little more ease. Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that’s noncompetitive. Fostering cooperation and compassion—instead of opposition—is a great gift to give our children whilst also incorporating a huge sense of fun in movement as well as relaxation.

I completed my Mother and Baby Teacher Training with YTI in 2017.  Mother and Baby yoga is a wonderful opportunity for Mums to spend quality time with their baby, enjoying their development and watching their unique personalities unfold.  Mothers are often keen to get back to themselves after having a baby, and regain pelvic tone. Postnatal yoga is the perfect solution for mothers to get to their weekly yoga class, where their baby is apart of it too.

As a part of my Kids and Baby Yoga, it is evident that when babies start to crawl there is little classes that mothers can go to and enjoy spending time with their crawling babies as well as meet other mothers and babies socialize with other babies.  Wobblers class is focused on a mothers developing their yoga practice and flexibility.

I qualified in Pregnancy Teacher Training in 2017 with Jan Duffy at Barefoot Yoga Studio.  Holding space with expectant mothers is a special space to hold and to allow them the opportunity to learn how to use their breath for labour and preparation for bringing a baby into the world.

Sports Yoga certificate was completed in 2018  with YTI as another add on to my current knowledge.  This training allows me to design cross training practices for different training practices and sports.  Sports yoga is a mixture of mental focus, strength, flexibility and mobility training.  Breathing techniques to enhance stamina and endurance for mental focus, relaxation which are all valuable tools to help strengthen, stretch and restore the body.  Classes are an anatomy informed approach to teaching yoga so students can understand common injuries and prevent reoccurring injuries.  Injury prevention, enhance performance and building muscle resilience for athletes.

Completing my Yoga Therapy post grad in 2018 with YTI has now allowed me to practice as a Yoga Therapist that specializes in working one to one with individuals who have a varied health conditions especially people who suffer from chronic pain or illness.  Yoga therapy helps to find some comfort on a one to one basis to focus solely on the individual needs.  The following conditions and illnesses that I can work with on a one to one basis or in a therapy class are the following: Musculoskeletal conditions, Arthritis, Strains, Sprains, Carpal Tunnell Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, Sciatica, Piriformis Syndrome, Fibromyalgia Osteoporosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, Stroke, Heart Disease, Back pain conditions, Hip Replacements, Anxiety, Stress and some Respiratory and Cardiovascular conditions.

A Dramatherapy group for teenagers will be starting on the 1st of February 2018, in Primary Care Psychotherapy Centre Naas.

Facilitated by Anna Shinnors MA Dramatherapy NUIM (Biography below).

During the teen years it can be difficult to talk about emotions, especially with parents and authority figures. Creative arts therapy can be a useful way to work with a changing sense of self.  Dramatherapy can be a valuable boost to traditional counselling. This group is for teenagers from 15 to 17 years of age and will run every Thursday evening from 7 – 8pm for 8 consecutive weeks until the 22nd of March.

The cost to attend this group is €15 per client per session.

“Creative Art Therapies, such as Dramatherapy, are a unique way to deal with problems, express yourself, set goals, and gain confidence.”

“Amongst the Creative Arts Therapies, Dramatherapy offers the best forum for teens to try on new roles, learn new ways of relating, and express how they feel.”

Dramatherapy takes a unique approach to helping teens by using drama and/or theatre techniques, including improvisation, role-playing and acting out stories.

Dramatherapy has a whole host of benefits, including:

*Encouraging you to learn how to solve your problems

*Giving you an opportunity to express how you are feeling

*Learning how to set goals for yourself

*Helping you improve how you relate to other people

*Understanding yourself and your experiences more clearly

*Taking these skills with you into your roles at home, school, and/or work, to improve the way you cope with life

*Using creativity, imagination, and play, to practice reacting to difficult situations

*Getting to the point of addressing problems quickly

*A way to escape from the pressures of life into the imagination for a little while

*Interacting with others in a safe, confidential environment
