Lauren is a second-year M.A. student of Psychology at The New School for Social Research. Prior to commencing the Master's program she worked as a physical therapist for 7 years and treated a number of clients with chronic pain. It was here she came to realize that, in many instances, her patients’ suffering was deeper than the physical symptoms they presented with. Lauren’s primary area of research is in sensorimotor psychotherapy and self-regulation. More specifically, she is interested in how trauma can influence perceptual changes, body experiences and arousal levels. She is also interested in exploring how different states of arousal can induce dissociation. She has been influenced by the work of Pat Ogden.
