One of the best things about having created the Becoming Safely Embodied Skills is meeting the wonderful people who lead the groups. Amy Zajakowski Uhll, LCPC is one of these people: kind, caring, considerate, compassionate, generous.
I opened my email tonight to see that Amy is leading a couple Becoming Safely Embodied groups, one for men and the other for women.
Becoming Safely Embodied Skill-Building Groups
for Men and Women in Chicago
Often the effects of trauma can have a significant impact on daily life long after painful events have passed. These effects may be experienced as frequent agitation, anxiety or a sense of numbness that seem to belong more to the past than the present.
The group will explore and use knowledge of the way trauma affects the body and brain to teach useful skills that will help to live a more peaceful life in the present moment. Skills will include: meditation, recognizing triggers and identifying thoughts, feelings and body sensations. The group will be
experiential with time for practice.
