I work as a professional dog trainer and came to this webinar for information on helping clients who have had painful and traumatic experiences with dogs. I am also the head of a non profit that does conservation work with mustangs, both in the wild and in captivity. That field has incredible amounts of stress, trauma, pain and definitely impacts social connections. So much of what I learned in this connected dots for me, like how some horses can go from wild to captivity and never look back but others become very shut down- and how I can help those horses and their humans! For the conservation work in the wild- it gave me ideas on keeping them in a space of feeling safe so we can work with them there. Finally, as a human, who doesn't experience any of these things? I now have tools to help me in many areas of my life, I feel supported, and that has been missing. Looking forward to exploring more of Sukie on YouTube!

The science behind this was very interesting. Somehow it is easier to cope with the behaviors presented when you can understand the science behind them.

This was a fabulous webinar, re inforced many things I already work on. This webinar gave me the ability to have a look at these things from my dogs perspective, and to switch my way of thinking. I spent many years training horses, and seemed to be having difficulty applying the same principles to myself(humans) and my dogs. Thank you so much Sukie Baxter, was amazing and so looking forward to other webinars with you !!

Sukie was an excellent speaker who imparted the material in a way that kept it interesting. It was very personal and meaningful to me, not only for my dogs but for myself. I think the session could have been even longer than 2 hours because there was so much more for her to cover and so many questions people wanted answered. I'm really glad for the downloads because I plan to go over her material in detail. Thank you so much for this webinar!

Does your body ever hurt?

I've been told by crossover trainers that one of the benefits they experienced from switching to positive dog training was relief from pain in their own bodies. Positive training is physically and emotionally less painful for the human (as well as the dog). However, there are still certain career hazards from training dogs, driving around, being on the computer a lot, and caring about the welfare of so many animals.

Pain isn't just from obvious physical injuries. Chronic pain, stress, and trauma can become stuck in the nervous system and have a negative impact on health and happiness. That affects everything from how we feel physically to our ability to connect and empathize with others (including our dogs) or even simply experience joy.

When an organism is able to sufficiently process and discharge the stress of a traumatic experience, there is little to no residual impact of the event. However, in our busy, fast-paced and overstimulating world, most of us don’t have enough time or resources to fully integrate stressful experiences.

The result is that your nervous system becomes locked into a pattern of stress. By cultivating an understanding of how stress and trauma impact your own nervous system, you can begin to recognize patterns which indicate stored emotions trapped in the body as well as design successful interventions to bring the nervous system back into balance for enhanced health and mental wellbeing. The more you know about your own mammalian nervous system, the more you can help dogs, and other non-human animals, too!

Recorded live online January 12, 2022. Available on-demand now, with a special bonus live Q&A on March 16, 2022 at 10 am Pacific.

  • Suitable for all humans, including pet owners, dog trainers, equestrians, and behaviorists.

  • This on-demand webinar recorded in January with a live online audience and includes the Q&A from that time. Ask your questions in a NEW live Q&A March 16, 2022.

  • Learn how to identify and recognize the behavioral symptoms of the three nervous system states associated with stress and social connection.

  • Define trauma as it relates to the physical body.

  • Understand the connection between trauma and chronic pain.

  • Discuss the impact of social structure with regard to trauma and the nervous system.

  • Assess nervous system states in self and others.

  • Learn to adopt an optimal physical alignment for your body.

  • Design successful interventions to facilitate nervous system regulation.

  • For a better value, consider a Diamond membership! This webinar is included with a Diamond All Access Pass.

Sukie Baxter is so well-informed, and provided lots of validating background info for the reality of chronic pain, even that which has no apparent medical cause, the way that polyvagal theory can impact human and animal behavior, and how this can impact our training in horses and dogs. I wish there were more time to discuss the impacts and how to work to move animals through different states, as problems were presented and validated but solutions were not discussed. I think this had to do with Sukie Baxter having and knowing so much information that it was impossible for her to get through it all in the allotted time. In the future, perhaps breaking up subjects into separate webinars would be more useful. Even though the subjects are interrelated, links could be provided to other webinars or youtube videos if people need or want more info on a particular topic.

Learning the mammalian (and maybe lizards & fish) physiology and how the nervous system works is imperative to healing, and directly correlated to the quality of our life experience. This webinar is one of the best examples of "knowledge is power." What better power to have than to learn how to move into a healthy, regulated state? This information should be taught as early in life as possible. Thank you Sukie and the Grishastewart .com school for making this information available.

About the Instructor

I'm thrilled to be welcoming Sukie Baxter to my Academy. Read on to learn why!

Embodiment Coach

Sukie Baxter

Sukie Baxter’s work is the culmination of over thirty years of experience working with and learning from horses combined with fifteen-plus years of clinical experience helping people release the pain of accidents, injuries, and emotional scars from their bodies.

Her unique coaching style marries modern neuroscience with ancient wisdom practices to call you home to yourself for a greater sense of connection and profound well-being in mind and body.

Sukie has found her home in equine rehabilitation and performance optimization — working with the horse and rider to improve physical balance, emotional stability and mental focus through nervous system healing. The result is greater health and resilience for both humans and horses alike — and this forms the foundation of elite performance.

Sukie is the author of 'Perfect Posture for Life' and the creator of her signature Nerve Apprenticeship, where she trains coaches and healers on how to go beyond the rational mind and connect to the wisdom of the body using practical tools and techniques for consistently magical results.
