Biology of Trauma® Podcast
With Dr. Aimie Apigian

Episode Episode 36: How to Integrate Somatic and Parts Work. Part 1

"..the first step is to kind of witness your body and where you're aware of these physiological shifts. And then the second phase is really the narrative you develop about those physiological responses. If you see it through a polyvagal lens, you see the reactions as trying to protect you.."


Show Notes:

Have you thought about how you should integrate somatic work and parts work and how that integration actually happens? Then you are in luck! That’s what we are covering today. In the 21 Day Journey, we start off with parts work – what is it you are actually feeling in your body. This helps us incorporate and mix the two so we are doing somatic parts work, rather than focusing on either one on its own. Today, we will answer the question: How do we integrate the two by connecting to the part behind a body sensation and how does that help us?


What you will hear in this episode:

  • Dr. Aimie teaches how to integrate somatic and parts work and the value in it [03:58]
  • Two program mentors, Dirci [13:17] and Anja [17:16], share their experience with integrating the two and what it has brought them
      *Note: This is a two-part series, so make sure you come back to catch the next episode. Part two will focus on the mind-body connection.
