Trauma and addictions recovery models, along with mind-body and object relations frameworks are examined and integrated with KMP, Laban and Body-Mind CenteringTM concepts. Techniques such as somatic counter-transference, gestalt work, integrated transformational healing, dramatic improvisational experiments, re-choreography of object relations and authentic movement are explored and experienced.
