P-C Workshop IV

Title: An Integrated Approach to the Work with Traumatized People
Edoardo Pera and Cristina Angelini


The workshop is the exploration of an integrated approach where Post-Reichian body  psychotherapy, Porges Polyvagal theory (neuroception), EMDR and Mindfulness create a platform to work with severely traumatised people (refugees, survivals of war, torture and SGBV) even from other cultures, using elements of Etno-psychiatry. During the workshop there will be practical experiences (individual or in group), coming from the work in post-emergency situations in Italy and abroad.
