Course Description:

Calling all mind/body therapists…the Misophonia community needs you!

Misophonia is still a mystery to many people, let alone therapists, but it is estimated to affect up to 20% of the population. Getting help has been considered an area of specialty with short term “treatment” that mostly focuses on coping skills, reframing cognitive perceptions, and “learning to live with it”. However, there can be hope and growth with a much-needed shift from a “can’t fix it” paradigm to a “what can we learn from it?” approach. While most therapies have used a “top down” cognitive framework, brain/body modalities that work “bottom up” with the body have much to contribute to helping Misophones find relief from trigger symptoms and the common emotions of rage, disgust, guilt, and shame.

This workshop will cover what Misophonia is and is not, what is happening in the brain and body when “triggered”, and how brain/body modalities such as Internal Family Systems “parts work”, Somatic experiencing, Brainspotting and EMDR can be used to help Clients unpack, learn, and heal from the pain and trauma that surrounds the experience of living with Misophonia.

Kresta lived with Misophonia for 35 years before finding freedom.
