How to work with other professionals who are also supporting your clients – For therapists and counselors, somatic practitioners, and potential surrogate partners
Masters and Johnson created a powerful tool called the Triadic Model – the client has the support of both a therapist and a surrogate partner (or bodyworker). The professionals work as a team, and the client gets more support. Dr. Kaye and the Institute for Mind Body Therapy have expanded the Triadic Model to include other somatic practices (in addition to the previously included Surrogate Partners).
For therapists and counselors: You witness people’s intimate lives every day. You hear your clients express feelings about sexuality and their deep desire to love and be loved. They often feel desperately touch-deprived. Adding a physical component can complement the psychological and emotional aspects of talk therapy.
For Somatic Practitioners: You too witness people’s intimate lives, and hear about their feelings. The additional support of you working with their therapist can give your client more support for full emotional wellness and empowerment.
For those interested in becoming Surrogate Partners: Understanding the Triadic Model is the first step.
During this webinar, join Dr. Kaye and Dr. Martin as we explore partnering with others in supporting clients.
About Dr. Betty Martin
I’m Dr. Betty Martin, a Chiropractor, a Body Electric School trained Sacred Intimate, Certified Sexological Bodyworker, Foundations of Facilitation trainer, and a self-propelled erotic adventurer and intimacy coach.
Every one of these and more has contributed to my understanding of the nature of touch.
I’m one of those lucky people who grew up in the touch-y feel-y hippie years. Then I got serious and went to Chiropractic school and learned to touch with some clear intent.
That makes about 30 years as a hands-on professional, first in therapeutics – Chiropractic, Somato-Respiratory Integration, Educational Kinesiology, Reiki, Neuro-Emotional Integration – and later in body-based erotic education, including sensual massage, Taoist Erotic Massage, Kashmiri tantric massage and Sexological Bodywork.
I’ve taught peer counseling, gender liberation, embodiment and empowerment, fantasy play, goddess awakening and erotic massage. I’ve played with contact improv dance, Authentic Movement, Non-Violent Communication and Shaivic tantra. I am a student of The Work of Byron Katie. I am a Board member and train and certify new facilitators for a touch and communication workshop called Cuddle Party.
Helping clients distinguish between the act and the energy of sex introduces possibilities for drawing on the power of their sexual energy to inform, spark and fuel other parts of their lives. Orgasm in particular is an excellent teacher — and can be used as a way to help people learn how to feel more in their daily lives, stay more alert and aware during times of chaos and intensity, and become more adept at surfing their own energetic highs and lows without perceiving them as “problems” that need fixing. This approach can be used by touch and talk practitioners alike to great effect. Tune in to find out more.
During this webinar, Dr. Kaye and Monica Day explore the transformative power of orgasm as metaphor.
About Monica Day
Monica Day instigates individual liberation and cultural transformation by helping people better understand how to express and alchemize their life force energy into potent forms and expressions. Her work involves coaching, workshops, artistic performance, and any other forms of provocation and instigation she can find. By forging powerful links between the private self to the public self, clients eventually realize an unprecedented feeling of wholeness that is life-changing. Her coaching is based on the premise that the more connected we are to every part of ourselves, the more connected we can be with one another, and the bigger impact we can have during our time here on the planet. You can reach her through her website www.thesensuallife.com.
Watch this FREE webinar as we learn more about how the IMBT helps to expand knowledge, create community, and build bridges of understanding between and among practitioners of mind-body practices.
Working in the mind-body arena can be challenging, whether you support clients primarily through touch or body-based work, or you support them through counseling and conversation. By learning more from those who offer different, yet complementary practices, creating relationships to work together, and participate in the larger community, you can build upon your practice, receive additional support, and enhance your interactions with clients.
During this webinar, join Dr. Kaye and Andrés as we learn more about the Institute and its offerings, and how they can benefit you as a mind-body practitioners.
