Letting The Body Speak Its Mind:

Integrating Psychomotor Interventions into Clinical Work

Recent neurological research on the brain and emotions reveals the relevance of psychomotor interventions in accessing the unconscious and emotional pathways to reparative work. This experiential course presents an integrated approach of psychomotor techniques incorporating sensory, somatic and breathing modalities. It is based on optimum performance techniques evolved over 40 years of working with performers-in-crisis, and explores how these modalities are applied in general clinical work to alleviating anxiety, working with couples, stress management, and issues of self-worth and self-identity. In addition, how to practice maintaining desired changes is addressed.

Margret Elson, LMFT,has dual careers as musician and psychotherapist. For over forty years she has pioneered in wellness of performing artists, and has presented her unique methodology throughout the US, in Norway, London, and at international conferences. In 1993 she received an National Endowment of the Arts grant to produce the CD, Twentieth Century American 4-Hand Piano Music (Laurel Record). Margret has written two books: Passionate Practice: The Musician’s Guide to Learning, Memorizing and Performing, describing her methodology;
The Piano and the Couch: Music and Psyche exploring the relationship between psychology and music through actual case studies.
