Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy

A Somatic Psychotherapy Training Program

Incorporating the work of Wilhelm Reich and Core Energetics with contemporary therapies and indigenous practices, students of SSBP's integrative certification program gain a strong foundation from which to organize their approach to clients. The result is as spiritual as it is psychological, opening the client's perception to the greater world around them as well as to their own unique offering which I call "Referencing From the Self".

Along with the standard Core energetic curriculum I have been divining what would be best the best book to use for class on trauma theories.  There are many good writers on the topic these days.  But I am so happy that Bessel Van Der Kolk, one of my first therapy heroes and the pioneer who began asking the right questions that led to the development of the field, has just come out with a new book, The Body Keeps Score.  It's a perfect fit and complete and easy to read with interesting historical data and stellar research. He is an old school psychiatrist who seeks true understanding and well tested treatments.  Yoga is at the top of his list for trauma survivors- now that is unique for a Psychiatrist!

This year we will also be using Core Energetic classics Elizabeth Michaels, Bent Out Of Shape; Alexander Lowen, The Vibrant Way to Health; and Stephen Johnson, Character Styles.

There is still room for YOU!
