William Spear, Founder of Fortunate Blessings Foundation and the Second Response Initiative, and Second Response team members were at the conference to provide information about our work and to offer a special session on the Second Response methodology. Mr. Spear was the keynote speaker of this conference in 2013.
The one-hour PLAYshop introduction was conducted by William and Jonah Spear. The learning objective of such a session is to introduce the phenomenology of trauma and Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) to participants through specific exercises designed to prevent Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). A PLAYshop training directly engages participants in our experiential methodologies which employ body or somatic exercises to release repressed emotions. The video on this website’s Homepage describes our work and shows scenes from an actual PLAYshop training.
