Experiential Development Group 1

The Experiential Developmental Group (EDG) is an interactive experience-based group process where didactic learning and hands on experience come together. This group is for somatic practitioners who work with shock and/or developmental trauma and would like to expand their touch skills and knowledge. Preference is given to those who have completed Somatic Resilience and Regulation, Transforming the Experience-Based Brain, or Touch Skills Training. Others are approved on individual basis by Terrell. EDG is based on The Fishbowl learning experience. This process allows participants to observe and learn about touch techniques and to experience their effectiveness. In these groups, Terrell presents a topic which is then discussed by the entire group. Then, each participant has the experience of being client and clinician. Before engaging as the clinician, each participant will have an opportunity to present a clinical case to the group. During the work, direct supervision is offered by Terrell in order to help the clinicians expand their skills . The observers will be encouraged at the end of the practice session to discuss their observations and to share their own feelings that may have been triggered. Increasing participant capacity through regulation is the primary goal of EDG. “You can only take people (clients) as far as you yourself have gone.” Richard Rohr. Terrell chooses a different topic for each EDG to be the focus of the experience. Topics are based on primative reflexes and integration, attachment theory/attachment styles or specific causes of developmental trauma such as medical trauma, early adversity, or adoption.
