Description

Words alone do not treat cPTSD. We need embodied and experiential methods like sociometrics and experiential letter-writing to access the full social engagement system whether in one-to-one, couples or group therapy. In this module, Dr. Dayton will discuss the theory behind how RTR-S heals adult relational trauma and how RTRS can be used in healing adult relational trauma and fostering social-emotional learning.

 

We will discuss the following: 

  • • The healing power of social engagement
  • • Good self-regulation grows out of successful co-regulation
  • • Warming up memory, emotion and recall through moving the body/the limbic system
  • • Reconnecting with the inner parts of self that may have shut down and become unavailable
  • • Naming, experiencing and sharing feelings then listening as others do the same
  • • Elevating split off emotion to a conscious level through language so that feelings can be reflected on and understood, shared and used as a way of self-regulating both internally and relationally

 

The Core processes of RTR-Sociometrics are:

  • • Step-in-Circles
  • • Spectrogram
  • • Locogram
  • • Floor Checks: Feeling, Resilience, cPTSD, Anxiety, Anger, Depression, Post Traumatic Growth
  • • Experiential Letter Writing
  • • Timelines: Resilience/Attachment Trauma
  • • Social Atoms
  • • Role Play Basics

 

Floor Checks are Dr. Dayton’s core sociometric process. Created by Dr. Dayton to fit easily into treatment, outpatient programs, and groups, floor checks help to take the guesswork out of incorporating experiential work into treatment.They incorporate evidence-based research that turns dry lecture material into spontaneous and dynamic case studies that both teach and heal.

 

Floor Checks feel welcoming and safe. Clients are out of their seats, on their feet, grounded in the room, and engaging with each other. They are research-based experiential processes that are psycho-educational and help clients to move organically from states of dysregulation to co-regulation and self-regulation.
