Trauma-Sensitive Yoga and Embodied Therapy

What It Is and How It Can Help

Free webinar hosted by David Prescott,
Editor of Safer Society Press

Guest Speakers: David Emerson, YACEP, TCTSY-F
and Jenn Turner LMHC, TCTSY-F



Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TSY) has garnered worldwide attention in the past decade. Much of this attention has stemmed a handful of high-quality studies by a community of scientist-practitioners showing that TSY can be an effective adjunctive treatment for trauma-related conditions. Fundamental aspects of TSY include interoception (observing one’s internal physical sensations) and taking effective action based on what one notices within a relational context.

This webinar conversation will feature the work of the two leading progenitors of TSY in the world. They will discuss what TSY is (and isn’t), review its key features, and explore its application and implementation. It is best considered an introduction to a fascinating area of study and practice for professionals and not a training on how to be a TSY facilitator.
