I wasn't sure what this course would be when I read the title but I found it really interesting and a useful introduction to body work with disassociated clients. It has generated an interest in exploring body work further.

A great course! Pat Ogden is always excellent. I have heard her several times, at ISC events, and at NICABM. This was the first time she covered pitfalls and dangers of "Body-Phobic" patients connecting to their sensations, and offered specific interventions, how to titrate, etc. Very useful!
