Particular emphases will be on unformulated experiences, movement and language, nonverbal processes, affect, trauma, attachment and developmental processes.​

​​In addition, group meetings will be interspersed with experiential and experimental ​studio ​sessions to directly explore and investigate somatic and movement processes in one’s own body.​
