Somatic Therapy Workbook

The Somatic Therapy Workbook

By Livia Shapiro

Release tension, boost your mood, and heal from traumatic experiences with therapist-approved activities in this easy-to-use guide to somatic therapy.


The effects of a traumatic event are more than just mental. Trauma can manifest in the body as chronic pain, sluggishness, and even depressed mood. Somatic psychology is an alternative therapy that analyzes this mind-body connection and helps you release pent-up tension and truly heal from past trauma. The Somatic Therapy Workbook offers a primer to this life-changing approach as a means for personal growth, designed for beginners or those already using somatic techniques in their current therapeutic process. Ideal for those suffering from PTSD and other trauma-based afflictions, this safe and approachable look at somatic therapy includes:


  • journal exercises
  • body-centered prompts for personal inquiry
  • movement exercises
  • real-life experiments


Readers will come away with a new ability to process and accept their emotions and an understanding of how to live a somatically-oriented and embodied life.
