NOTE: This course meets the requirement for Pain Management.

For many trauma survivors, traditional talk therapy can have limitations in providing true healing and processing of trauma. With the increase of popularity of somatic modalities, many trauma survivors are seeking ways to supplement their trauma treatment. This workshop will discuss how practitioners can integrate yoga into their work as a tool for stress and behavior management. Specific techniques such as Yoga Nidra will be discussed and practitioners will leave with specific skills they can incorporate into their work with clients. This workshop meets the Social Work Continuing Education requirement of pain management training.


  1. I can identify one benefit of using yoga as a supplemental treatment for stress management.
  2. I can identify two strategies to implementing yoga-related techniques with clients.
