      Chronic Pain & Early Attachment: A Movement Process for Awareness and Healing

      Suzi Tortora, EdD, BC-DMT, LCAT, LMHC

      Approximately 1 in 4 American adults have chronic pain. Research has shown that the development of chronic pain is associated with “insecure” adult attachment styles, rooted in infancy and early childhood experiences with primary caregivers. These early experiences – initially registered on a somatic, kinesthetic and sensory level – shape how we make sense of the world, express our emotions and respond to threats throughout our lifetime. This 3-hour workshop will demonstrate nonverbal ways to explore early relationship patterns through moment-to-moment dance/movement explorations that metaphorically reveal old and new ways to engage with self and others. I will demonstrate their movement styles and provide descriptions for the participants to “ try-on.” This workshop will include dyadic, small group, and whole group hands-on learning. Therapist participants will learn how to gain visceral insight into clients when moving with them and witnessing their affective and physical attunement during partnered movement explorations. Designed for participation by healthcare professionals of all disciplines and interested others.

      1st Annual Cyprus International Conference on Autism Treatment and Research (Paphos, Cyprus)

      "Magic Always Happens" through our interdisciplinary approach to autism!

      lw_autism_360.jpg

      Dr. Suzi Tortora will be one of the featured speakers at this conference.

      Our conference has a true "360 degrees" approach and it aims to bring together experts and luminaries from transdisciplinary scientific research, as well as from applied fields including academicians, psychologists, physicians, geneticists, speech therapists, civil engineers, architects, economists, law, technology, and other subject matter experts. Together, we shall all discuss best practices and suggest ideal ways of working with, treating, educating, building for, and sustaining quality centers for autism excellence. Actions need to follow words if we are to render effective and efficient solutions, thus, allowing all people on the spectrum to enjoy a better quality of life and a brighter future.

      Our conference will integrate plenary sessions, workgroups, and poster sessions. Following the conclusion of the conference works an expert think tank will offer specific feedback and consultation (on 23 November; by invitation only).
