New Webinar with
Nancy J. Napier

Working with Implicit States:
A “Whole-Brain” Approach to Metabolizing
Trauma-Based Responses

May 21, 2021
9:30am – 5:00pm

It can be discouraging to clients who have done a good bit of psychotherapy to discover that they continue to be captured and sometimes overwhelmed by intense feeling states arising from early trauma. Because implicit memory—unmetabolized early experience—has no timeline, it feels as if it’s happening now, that it is about now. It doesn’t register as a memory feeling, as something that “used to be.”

One of the essential elements in metabolizing implicit memory is to integrate the present-day observer awareness with the unmetabolized feeling state at the heart of the implicit memory. Many of these states are young, representing experiences in early childhood. For this reason, in processing implicit memory states, it helps to have a shared awareness of the present-day adult client and the implicit younger state/part experience the feelings at the same time.

In this webinar, Nancy will share ways to support this “bottom-up” process, including strengthening the presence of the observer and helping clients to engage with child states in an active, engaged healing relationship between these aspects of self. As part of the process, clients are invited to develop an increasing sense of self-acceptance and inherent wholeness, where there is room for the observer to encompass all aspects of self. This is important because increasing one’s sense of wholeness is not only grounding, but also stabilizing.

As part of this day-long webinar, Nancy will do a live demo and, in the afternoon, may offer a guided experience so clinicians can directly nurture the experience of their own wholeness. In psychotherapy or other healing approaches, whatever the particular technique, the embodied presence of the facilitator is an important element in what unfolds. 

Areas covered will include:

  • Educating clients about the dynamics of implicit memory;

  • Offering a way to engage and support the observer while also experiencing directly the unmetabolized material in the implicit memory;

  • Accessing a sense of particular child states with whom clients can develop more conscious and supportive relationships;

  • Promoting a deepening sense of self-acceptance;

  • Tracking internal self-talk to notice and then shift negative or self-critical comments related to any potential shame response that arises from the power of implicit trauma memory states;

  • Supporting a healthy sense of wholeness in both clinician and clients.

Read more about this workshop:

This audio recording is from a workshop offered by Nancy Napier for psychotherapists and other practitioners interested in approaches to trauma resolution that include a body-based perspective.

It can be particularly challenging to work with clients when they are unaware of being swept upby trauma energy. This workshop provides practitioners with additional skills and a greater level of ease in working with parts, the interpersonal field, and their own counter-transference responses. “Parts work” involves accessing unresolved developmental andtraumatic experiences, which express as blocked energy and habitual patterns of activation and constriction.

Some ego states represent early childhood trauma, while others emerge in later developmental stages. Many represent unprocessed trauma energy. “Parts”, include ego states, sub-personalities, imagined companions, dissociated “self-states” as well as non-trauma-based resource states such as the optimal future self.

In this workshop, Nancy also focuses on the interpersonal field created between client and practitioner, and explores opportunities that arise to track trauma responses that spontaneously emerge within relational and transference dynamics. Corrective experiences are enhanced when brought into sensory awareness in vivo.

Particular attention is brought to the capacity of practitioners to self-regulate and track their counter-transference responses, which enhances the containment and healing potential within the interpersonal field.

Nancy also describes coupling dynamics, in which elements of experience become either entangled or dissociated in ways that prevent clients from moving beyond their traumatic experience.
