This Y12SR program presents a framework for addiction recovery that includes the cognitive approach of the 12-step program, the trauma healing approach of Somatic Experiencing and the body-based approaches offered by yoga and mindfulness practices.

Utilizing material from ancient texts, trauma research as well as information and data from modern neuroscience studies, we will discuss exactly how combining the cognitive and somatic approaches can support changes in brain patterning. This holistic framework, based in the theme, ‘The Issues Live in Our Tissues’, presents a holistic relapse prevention model that supports compassionate awareness, change and healing.

The Y12SR Leadership Training Teaches:

– Create safe, sacred, open, inclusive space that welcomes all those dealing with their own addictive behavior or are affected by the addictive behavior of others.

– Understand the 12-step process of addiction recovery as well as recognizing the symptomology of unresolved trauma, and a dys-regulated nervous system.

– Use yoga and its practices to provide relapse prevention tools and sustainable ways for managing internal states.

– Take advantage of teachable moments, help resolve ambivalence and work with those who are struggling emotionally.

– Use social learning theory to model new behavior through observational learning.

– Recognize the traps of projection, transference, countertransference, boundary violation, spiritual bypass/arrogance.

– Work collaboratively within the group setting and with institutions.

– Develop a network of professionals including trauma experts and others in the addiction/recovery treatment field.
