Shock Trauma training

We are delighted to bring to you the Bodynamic Shock Trauma Training starting in London in April 2023 in person.

Six seminars of five days each over two years for a total of 30 days training.

Highly skilled trauma professional Ditte Marcher and Michael Rupp delivering a wealth of material to first address one’s traumatic experiences and then developing the skills to work with client’s shock trauma states.

About this workshop

This training offers a multi-faceted, body-oriented and resource focussed approach to the treatment of Shock Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

It’s aimed at understanding, reducing and ending PTSD symptoms: an established dis-regulation of the Autonomic Nervous System causing metabolic imbalances and affecting one’s sense of self (hyper-vigilance, flashbacks, insomnia or obsessive thinking, IBS, dissociation to mention just a few).

Addressing Peak Experiences states, unlocking frozen impulses, identifying life-changing decisions connected to trauma are core element of this comprehensive training.

Who is this for?

The target audience is professionals dealing with shock and high stress in their profession – and thus need to learn to understand and master these states within themselves in order to support the healing of others. 

An interview is required for admission to the training.
