STATES OF SHOCK & TRAUMA
A workshop series for Alexander Teachers & Trainees
In four parts, 2 hours each
Now available by workshop recordings
When pupils present themselves with an underlying state of shock, of being frightened, of grieving or of being traumatised – however present or archaic this may be – it is not necessarily appropriate to work with the same aims, methods, time scale or pacing that may be effective with other pupils. Something else may be called for in order that the background state can gradually dissolve and free itself from its physical encapsulation. This workshop series will explore ways of working that enable a sensitive ‘growing out of’ these states, setting them free in their own time…and will address the concept of ‘appropriate use’ as opposed to ‘good use’. For us as teachers this approach requires a surrendering of what we think we know, of what we may think the pupil needs, of what to ‘do’ next, and instead a simple ‘allowing’ to work from a state of presence and prolonged inhibition.
This work has grown uniquely from Delia’s experiences of working with shock and trauma in relation to the Alexander Technique.
This material is usually presented as a 3 day workshop in person, and has been adapted into 4 parts, to suit working over zoom.
