It is far less known that people who have experienced burn-out or suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder in particular can benefit from a specific dolphin intervention. The path of treatment here leads via harmonisation of the nervous systems to a gradual process of normalisation of psychological and emotional self-regulation.
Our therapy approach is based on the method of Peter Levine, which places great emphasis on the development of supportive resources that can support a gentle processing of traumatic contents or life circumstances that have led to trauma or burn-out. A dialogue takes place between the personal resources and the traumatic stress. The body is included in the treatment because the trauma has not only a psychological but also a physical component. Emotional triggers are rewritten and thus defused by linking them to a positive emotional state with the dolphin. As a highly developed social being, the dolphin is able to respond very specifically and individually to the emotional reactions that arise in the interaction. It radiates calmness, and eye contact in particular is a medium through which participants often experience a feeling of closeness and connection. This in turn leads to more connection with oneself and a process of "getting in touch" with oneself. The dolphin, together with the therapist, is able to sensitively moderate and channel out any crises or fear reactions that may arise. The effect is intensified by the dolphin's ultrasound, which can stimulate the nervous system. Last but not least, the therapy situation in the water should be mentioned, which challenges the participant's psychological system to throw all (on land) rehearsed patterns overboard and reconfigure itself in a floating way, freed from the conditions of gravity.
The Dolphin - Trauma and Burnout - Therapy can be completed in a one-week (5 therapy units) or two-week format with 10 Dolphin units of 30 min. each. The intervention is conducted by an experienced
