CranioSacral Therapy and Cyclus Vitae (Life Cycle): Separation and Loss (CSCV)

Prerequisite: SER2

Required Advance Reading: A Brain Is Born and Cell Talk by John E. Upledger, DO, OMM

The workshop presents tools to support the patients in the various stages of grief following a loss, when the loss is the death of loved ones or when the loss is caused by something considered as “small death” – which can be situations or scenarios that can occur in an individual’s life cycle (such as loss of job or degenerative disease). It allows the opportunity to get closer to some specific phases of the life cycle, including death and transition. It is a practical workshop, in which the student is able to learn the manual techniques and specific exercises for the therapist’s personal growth, meant as preparation to the application of techniques on patients who suffered from a loss, a grief or abandonment.

The course reviews different modalities of stress management and proposes CST techniques in combination with existing protocols in the research on stressors in the grieving process (Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross’ stages of grief).
