Join Dr. Kekuni Minton, one of the world's leading pioneers in the field of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy™ (SP), for an introduction to this profound therapeutic approach.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy™ is a body-centered approach that aims to treat the somatic symptoms of unresolved trauma. While traditional talk therapies utilize the words of a person as the entry point for treatment, this type of therapy depends on the bodily experiences of the individual as a gateway to awareness and improved mental health.

Therapists trained in sensorimotor therapy techniques can help an individual begin to heal by helping that person re-experience, in a safe environment, the physical sensations associated with a traumatic event.

Kekuni Minton, PhD, is a founding trainer of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, co-author of Trauma and the Body: A Sensorimotor Approach to Psychotherapy with Dr. Pat Ogden, and a faculty member at Naropa University. His doctoral thesis in clinical psychology focused on somatic relational therapy and he has special interests in meditation and cultural trauma. Dr. Minton was the resident psychotherapist at the Boulder County AIDS Project, and he trains internationally for SPI.
