United States Association for Body Psychotherapy (USABP) 6th Annual Conference Announcement: Unraveling Trauma: Body, Mind and Science

“USABP’s trauma conference, hosted by John F. Kennedy University in
Pleasant Hill, California, will be held October 22, 2010 through October
24, 2010 with post-conference sessions on October 25th.”


The United States Association for Body Psychotherapy (USABP) will be holding its 6th annual conference on the subject of unraveling trauma from a somatic psychology approach. Drawing from basic concepts on the latest neuroscience research in body psychotherapy to innovative clinical approaches to healing trauma, this USABP conference is ideal for researchers, educators, and health practitioners interested in the body-mind science.

With an emphasis on the importance of scientific and scholarly publications in the expanding field of body psychotherapy, trauma work is often considered to be a cornerstone. Students interested in learning more about body psychotherapy in general and its connection with trauma studies are especially welcome.

The conference opens Friday, October 22 by 8:00AM with a keynote address. There will be several intensives and breakouts each afternoon to choose from, which will include a mix of didactic, experiential and demonstration formats. There will be over 65 renowned presenters including Peter A. Levine, founder of Somatic Experiencing, who will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the awards luncheon.

Activities are split between the Hilton Concord in Concord, California at the center of San Francisco’s East Bay, and JFK University, Pleasant Hill. The keynotes will take place at the Hilton Concord, and the breakouts at JFK University, Pleasant Hill. Shuttle bus service will be provided between the two locations each day, taking into account the conference activities and daily schedule of events. Shuttle schedules will be available on site.

Two luncheons will be included. The first will be held on Saturday and the second will take place on Sunday for the awards luncheon in place of the traditional awards ceremony. The conference will also provide evening entertainment, which includes a Friday night city excursion and Saturday night dance party.

After the close of the conference, there will be 5 post-conference all-day workshops, for which an extra fee applies. Participants have the opportunity to choose from a variety of topics, a collection of presenters and a broad range of theory.
