When Intimacy Feels Unsafe: Healing the Trauma Legacy in Couples Therapy

Recent developments in neuroscience research, a renewed and more sophisticated understanding of the implications of attachment failure, and the development of neurobiologically-informed treatment techniques offer some hopeful answers to the puzzling and frustrating challenges of treating traumatized couples. This workshop will address the neurobiological legacy of trauma and its impact upon the experience of relationship in couples with histories of neglect, attachment failure, and trauma. Using interventions drawn from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a somatically-oriented talking therapy for trauma, we will explore how to address the intense responses and impulsive reactions that undermine any sense of safety and hope in each partner and re-create the experience of threat in the body.

Objectives

  • Discuss the neurobiological effects of traumatic experience on individuals and couples
  • Describe interaction of traumatic activation and couples conflict
  • Identify patterns that increase/decrease activation of animal defense survival responses
  • Increase couples’ ability to observe their somatic communication
  • Integrate somatic interventions into couples treatment
