Super Resourcing is an innovative approach to healing trauma and attachment wounds. While it has its roots in the EMDR tradition, unlike EMDR, it is not trauma based. My motivation was to create a protocol that was entirely attachment focused. Consequently, Super Resourcing addresses the attachment wounds in the person who experienced the trauma rather than working to resolve the trauma itself. When the client is well resourced in a neurologically integrated manner, there is a corresponding reduction of disturbance in relationship to the trauma without having to process the trauma directly. Super Resourcing takes the trauma out of trauma processing.
The procedural steps of Super Resourcing are designed to neurologically integrate positive sensations, emotions and cognitions. The integrated internalization of positive resources facilitates an enhanced present-time experience of self. More fully resourced clients are better able to tolerate doing deep trauma work. Resolving the attachment wound interwoven in a trauma un-fixes it in the client’s psyche and it processes more easily during subsequent sessions. A systemic experience of well-being allows dissociation and fragmentation to heal and disturbances to resolve; an experience of present-time wholeness becomes possible.
INDEPENDENT HOME STUDY TRAINING
I am currently working on an online home study program. It will be released in the fall of 2020. CE and EMDRIA CE credits will be available.
Individual and group consultation for Super Resourcing is available in person in my Berkeley office as well over the telephone and video conferencing.
TRAINING FOCUSED GROUPS
Upon request, consultation groups may focus on basic training of the protocol. These sessions include basic training, demonstrations, practice sessions with each other, presentation of recorded client SR sessions, and, of course, lots of time for Q & A. The number of consultation meetings is determined by the group members with a minimum of 5 sessions. I suggest the first few sessions are scheduled close together to maintain learning traction. Once the basics are covered, it is up the group to determine scheduling intervals. These training groups sometime evolve into ongoing monthly or as per needed SR consultation groups.
SUPER RESOURCING DOCUMENTS
“Alison has created an innovative and effective protocol for healing attachment wounds. You will come away from this workshop with a new way of thinking about and healing attachment trauma.
The protocol is both creative and grounded in current research on the neurobiology of attachment. I have been using this protocol in my practice and getting excellent results.”
