Trauma Talks Conference June 2018, Toronto
Bridging Brain and Body with Trauma-informed Care
June 8th, 2018
Movement for Embodied Resilience Workshop 1:15-2:30pm
Presenters: Jane Clapp, creator of the Movement for Trauma professional training program and co-founder of Trauma Informed Practitioners Collective; Jennifer Cardoso, Trauma Informed Yoga Teacher, Movement for Trauma Educational Coordinator and Teacher
Presentation Format: Workshop
- Different balance tools and activities to trigger the righting reflex to break patterns of immobilization and harness the benefits of the righting reflex to maximize efficient self-regulation both in therapeutic settings and client self-regulation outside of sessions. These activities have also been shown to help an individual reconnect with play and pleasure through their body.
- How fine and gross motor exercises can decouple physiological activation from emotional affect. When engaging clients in higher intensity interval activity, interwoven with movements that require a high degree of focus, Jane has observed improved distress tolerance in clients while improving a sense of self efficacy for physiological regulation.
- Simple, accessible and portable self-regulation movements that are beneficial for a client to use when outside their window of tolerance — both in the therapeutic setting and on their own. The resources presented in the Traumatic Stress Tool Kit are ideal for therapists to engage in to help prevent secondary or vicarious trauma in their own nervous system. Resources include bilateral movements to improve focus and concentration, exercises that promote connection with the body as an emotional container, activities to cultivate a sense of strength and resilience in the body, and down regulation techniques to employ before sleep.
Jane and Jennifer will provide simple neuro-scientific background behind the efficacy of these techniques, will demonstrate many of these movement interventions and strategies, and participants will have the opportunity to engage with the tools and exercises to experience immediate nervous system benefits in their own body.

This workshop is suitable for people with trauma histories who have done substantial personal psychotherapeutic work or movement coaches wishing to deepen their understanding of the impact traumatic stress has on our bodies and movement patterns.

We often hear “listen to your body, it doesn’t lie” or “eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full”. In fact, I used to encourage both. For over a decade I specialized in weight loss coaching and watched client after client hit their head against the wall trying to shed the pounds. I observed so much emotional pain and suffering, not only from trying to drop the weight, but in the work to keep it off for good. What I’ve learned through my personal and professional research into the neurobiology of toxic and traumatic stress is that we’re putting the cart before the horse. Before you can ‘listen’ to your body and give it what it needs you need to be able to tune in and identify the hunger for what it is – a physical need or emotional response? Join me for this free webinar and walk away having a better sense of yourself and discover the first step to transforming your relationship with food and, in fact, with any challenging area in your life.

Metro Toronto Movement for Literacy Conference

BC Fire Expo and FCABC Education Summit
Thursday, June 8th, 2017, Vernon, BC
Female Core & Pelvic Floor
March 1 & 2, 2017
Jane will bring the important dialogue of trauma to this conference. Whether it is childbirth related, or grief that can sometimes come when the fertility years are coming to a close (ie menopause), or any of the other many traumas that can have lasting mental-emotional impact on a woman’s psyche, these can have an impact on wellbeing and physical function. So much so that no matter what physical exercise we may do, if these traumas aren’t acknowledged the physical gains can be minimal, very slow or non-existent. Jane brings levity to this very important topic.
Early bird price until January 31st is $49 CDN plus hst
On February 1st the conference increases to $79 CDN plus hst
