Clients often experience emotions that are sudden and overwhelming. Being able to use the body to reduce vulnerability to emotion, increase ability to recognize and anticipate emotional responses and regulate emotional response is vital to not being swept away by strong emotions. This workshop will provide therapists with tools to teach their clients to use both in and out of session and be effective in their daily lives.


1. Participants will be able to explain two ways the body impacts and influences emotional responses.
2. Participants will be able to assist clients in recognizing body sensations as precursors to strong emotions.
3. Participants will be able to describe three techniques to regulate emotion using the body and implement them with clients in session.
