Transforming the Experience-Based Brain    

Hybrid Trauma-Informed Transfoming Touch® Training

Columbus, Ohio

"Using Regulation to Support Trauma Healing"

Training Format:

Hybrid Trauma-Informed Transforming Touch® Training Format

“Trauma-informed care is defined as practices that promote a culture of safety, empowerment, and healing."

This Format allows for us to present a Trauma-Informed Transforming Touch® Training at a much reduced cost

for our students (days out of office, hotels, transportation, and meals).

We offer a combination of online pre-recorded didactic presentations to be watched before we begin our onsite Skill Building Experience.

Designed to fuse the accessibility of online learning with excitement and healing in-person trainings.

The video portion of this program will allow us to cultivate a strong container with clear guidelines and foundational principles to follow as a cohort so that our time together can be utilized as a space of vulnerability, discovery, learning and the possibility of personal healing. 

With this solid foundation in place, we can then continue this exploration which is further amplified through interpersonal, real life exchanges and discussions.

We hope you can join us!

When teaching Transforming Touch®, we are not just teaching students.

We are creating a safe space for students to learn and heal. 

We are supporting nervous systems.

We are supporting complex and unique biophysiology.

Each of us has a different orientation of how we perceive our own safety or lack thereof. Through a psycho-somatic understanding of Trauma and the ways it lives in the body, we can embrace the practice of Transforming Touch® in a way that permits each individual to have their own experience.

 You will receive all the Enhancements for each module for easy use in your practice.

Heal the Healer:

Many of our students have shared and discovered that attending Transforming Touch® Training as repeat students offers time and space for their healing.  One student stated, "Where can I go for an intensive offering up to 6  Healing Enhancements?  The first time I experienced the training for my clients, the second time was for me and my clients, and all the rest are just for me".   So, no matter why you are coming, all are welcome.  We didn't realize the advantage of repeating at half price and the healing implications for Healers when the program was originally designed, but now with the Hybrid programs, it is truly a healing experience all the way through the training.

Somatic Healer and Trauma Therapist

Ellen Keating is a licensed psychologist in Wheaton, IL, who works with Developmental Trauma and Transforming Touch. She originally trained in emotion-focused therapy and noticed how clients would go from accessing deeper emotions directly into their traumas. Thus, she became interested in the healing of trauma. She explored Gestalt therapy, focusing, EMDR, and working with parts of the self. Ultimately, she discovered somatic healing and saw the power of touch for the healing of trauma. In particular, when she began to work with Transforming Touch, she noticed that her clients came into an even greater possibility for healing, resolving trauma, and having a full and satisfying life. This developed into her belief that through attunement, attachment, and regulation, even the “oldest” wounds can be helped and healed!

Ellen is a lead assistant for the Transforming the Experience-Based Brain trainings and does extensive consultations for touch therapists. She has conducted thousands of Transforming Touch sessions with clients and believes wholeheartedly in the power of this healing work.
