SMARTmoves is dedicated to the well-being and growth of people and families impacted by trauma through exploring movement and rhythms to promote an embodied sense of self and to build relationships. We partner with therapists, organizations, and communities to share SMART in an accessible and collaborative manner that represents trust and respect for the unfolding learning process.
Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment (SMART) is designed to treat the consequences of adverse childhood experiences, which we now understand as Developmental Trauma. We believe children’s natural tendency is toward adaptation, healing, and growth, to unlock this potential, and as such our method focuses on somatic regulation, trauma processing, and attachment-building through collaborative relationships.
In April, 2020 we completed our first full length book introducing SMART and its tools, skills, and concepts using detailed case vignettes, maps, and other graphic elements to illustrate clinical application.
