'There is no such thing as a body'
Susie will open our conference by describing how, like minds and self, the way we acquire a body and how we feel about and within our bodies emerges out of the contact and experience of the bodies we grow up with. These familial, gendered, class and cultural settings form the emotional and developmental template for the taking up of a bodily sense of self.

Dr Liz Hall has been a clinical psychologist since 1974, working initially in the NHS and, more recently, in private practice. She has over 30 years’ experience of working with clients presenting with complex trauma and dissociative states and co-authored the book ‘Surviving Child Sexual Abuse’ (with Siobhan Lloyd 1989, revised 1993). Liz is an Advanced Practitioner in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and is the UK training organiser for the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute.
Liz will present the new understanding of the neurobiological substrates of trauma reactions, particularly early traumatic experiences. She will also introduce the way a Sensorimotor Psychotherapist would work with this client group, based on this knowledge.
