Marian’s book entitled Bodydreaming in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma, Gradiva award winner 2019 – best book category, is the background material for her seminar. The book outlines trauma theory and demonstrates with transcripts from client sessions how to use these resources and interventions for engaging with trauma.

For the first time, we will depart from the usual format of online seminars and adapt to a Zoom format.
By the end of the week, I will post a chapter from Marian’s book that you will use as background material.
Marian will present a 45 minute ZOOM video seminar session each day. Twenty minutes of the forty five minutes will be allotted for Q and A.


I will post a link to the Zoom seminar each day (the night before so that you may access the seminar in time). I will also send you a link so that you can download ZOOM. We are limited to 98 participants. You will need to register ahead of time and instructions for how to do that are forthcoming.
Marian will daily take questions and prepare answers each day (to be determined how) and post her answers on the IAJS list serve discussion forum.

We will begin at 6 am Pacific Standard time (Seattle, WA, USA). We ask that you arrive in the waiting room ahead of time.
The sessions will be recorded and posted on the IAJS website each day so that the membership may view the video’s online.
As we approach the date, more information about the logistics will be shared.
