This training has been the most helpful I’ve ever been to. I feel like questions I was wondering, and my own hunches and theories about my clients were named in a way that brought relief and validation. I feel I am walking out of here a different therapist and human being. I know I will look back on this training as a turning point in my personal and professional life. Thank you!
Amazing! Big realizations about myself and my therapeutic orientation. I can’t wait to put this into practice! I so appreciate your impeccable clarity and curiosity about the nature of being human. Thank you.
This training has been so valuable, and I know it is going to profoundly change the ways I work in the room with my clients. I am grateful for Craig’s clinical skills and his generosity sharing his wealth of experience, wisdom, and perspective with us. I welcome the chance to do follow-up training. Useful handouts that I will be returning to, often. I especially appreciate Craig’s passion for his work and delighting in our growth. The live sessions and videos were so useful as examples of what this work looks like and how pacing and tracking are integral to the process.
Craig is an excellent teacher and a very skilled therapist. His materials and presentations were very clear and understandable. It exceeded my expectations.
In my nearly 30 years of clinical practice, this has been one of the most useful, clear, stimulating and challenging trainings I have ever attended. Well-organized, great visual aids and handouts. Not only did Craig have an exhaustive ammount of the material, he was also authentic, supportive and challenging in just the right mix. He as both inspired and excited me to be a better and more effective therapist and caused me to think deeply about how I care for myself and my clients.
This will profoundly change the way I practice. I feel very confident and trusting in the model. Craig’s teaching was clear, direct, SO well presented with case examples and passion. Craig answered every question thoroughly. I consider this training a must for any therapist working with trauma.
This training has been critical in my development as a therapist. The expanded understanding of how to better discern if someone is in their window of tolerance is invaluable. To have a better insight of how critical the somatic piece is in treatment will change my practice for the better. This training is a game-changer.
This has been so amazing for me. It’s like all my experiences, skills, workshops, learnings — have all come together in this training. Thank you for showing me how – exactly how – to be a therapist. It is what is missing in most conferences/workshops and I am so beyond grateful. This will absolutely transform and inform how I do this work. It’s like I can take all that I’ve learned cognitively and apply it to how I can actually work with myself and my clients in a productive, process-oriented, effective way.
Aha moment. This workshop just put so much of my pieces of work and training together . . . Craig did a great job. I am deeply grateful for the obvious work you did for this training, and the work you do therapeutically. This was the piece for me, the next piece for me as a therapist and a person . . . The multiple visuals, the videos, demonstrations, practice, didactic, and handouts were all helpful. And your embodiment with us of what you do — beautiful. Thank you.
Craig’s dedication, passion and commitment to the process is inspiring and infectious . . . This workshop is adding a whole new dimension of possibilities for myself and the work with my clients.
Craig creates and demonstrates a very strong somatic base, from which the work of therapy, growth and well-being can move organically. I have more confidence that my clients can gain greater stability and tolerance for their unfolding process as long as I am able to hold my attention, support, engagement in the immediacy of their somatic process. Craig embodies presence as he teaches presence.I have particpated in many excellent trainings; I feel Craig has contributed an important stitching together of these skills: Somatic EMDR.
Somatic EMDR is amazing! I really got so much from this that I’m going to take it back in a big way to implement and share with my colleagues and clients. Thank you for helping us bring awareness to our five senses and for the live demos. Live demos were most helpful in addition to the group experiential work. I am so glad I came. It will help my clients so much.
I was impressed with the work and the ability to go places with clients that have been previously difficult to get to even using standard EMDR, hypnosis and other somatic therapies. I am looking forward to incorporating this work into my practice and watching the evolution. Thank you, Craig, for your amazing work!
I cannot wait to participate in additional trainings with Craig Penner. His ability to convey and teach process work in a tangible manner is nothing short of incredible. Hard, hard concepts successfully understood and integrated during the course of the training.
This training was exceptional. It will change the way I work with clients and perceive myself as well. I am truly grateful for the opportunity.
I am blown away! Words cannot express the past 4 days. Craig, I appreciate your passion, commitment and love you have for this work — and to take the time to teach others how to integrate the two. I have learned a tremendous amount of useful information that is going to change the way I do therapy, notice myself and notice others. It really gave confidence and skills on what to do with my clients and even with myself! Thank you very much.
The training was amazing! I very much appreciate the superb organization, handouts and that we are receiving the Prezis. Your demonstrations and our practicums were extremely helpful. I am looking forward to experimenting and working with my clients in this way.
I am so excited about this work. I already was working somatically, and this deepened my work and understanding enormously. I have so much gratitude. . . I am excited to join with my clients in working this way.
Thanks again Craig. You are masterful. My EMDR skills were greatly enhanced with this training.
What a transformative training experience. The experiential exercises make the skills easy to grasp and understand.
I am so grateful and relieved to find this treatment approach. Craig’s commitment to the process, curiosity, integrity and “not-knowing” are such beautiful reflections of his understanding that healing happens naturally with the support of sustained awareness. I felt so happy and safe when he said on day one. “I feel insulted when therapists interpret things.” Thank you for your willingness to share your wisdom, humanness and skill with us.
The workshop was one of the best I’ve ever attended. I believe this will be a game-changer for my clients and my practice.
Your presence and confidence have been so inspiring, touching and supporting. Another doorway has opened to me — for myself and my practice. What a gift you are to us. Thank you for your dedication and clarity in your life’s work and for sharing with me, and with us in such a ‘receivable’ way. Excellent and user-friendly.
I experienced deep, internal somatic processing and physical shifting like I have never had before. I came in physically and emotionally exhausted. I am leaving physically, emotionally and intellectually recharged.
Thank you so much Craig. Of the many things I could highlight, I will mention getting the movement from ‘Bracing to Embracing’ and how this shows up and the inherent dilemmas that exist in the presenting problem. My greatest desire is to enhance my sensitivity and skill in working this way. I am really looking forward to Part Two.
This approach, with the somatic focus and depth, creates an organic clarity to hold the elements of human experience, the thoughts, feelings, sensations, behaviors, in a way that supports transformation.
This conference was superb! The teaching was absolutely clear while being as complex as it needed to be. The demonstrations were impressive — unforgettable about how the method can help with intense problems with developmental underpinnings. The practicums were well structured and I felt the practice and experience as client to be essential. A great way to learn — teach, observe, practice and experience. A+ is my grade. Look forward to Level 2.
Once again, I appreciate the thoroughness of Craig’s expertise. It is wonderful to allow the natural process to be so encompassed with my therapeutic process for my clients and myself. I just love this process. Thank you.
Very impactful experiential training, with space for meaningful self-reflection. The paceof the training allows for integration while pushing my growth edges. The feedback is delivered ina repectful way that encourages growth and strives towards greater competency. The commitment to enhancing learning is evident and felt.
Craig - I experience you as a teacher and person as highly skilled at communicating such an important process with articulation and heart - so that it lives inside me, whether I am aware of it always or not. Thank you. You have greatly impacted me as a person and therapist.
I am grateful, as I am each time, to learn more from Craig and each of his assistants. The experience infuses my practice with deeper meaning and understanding of myself and where my own personal work lies. I leave with renewed excitement and commitment to somatic practices. I appreciate all of the feedback and compassion with which it was delivered. Many thanks to all of you for the gifts you have shared with me.
