ReConceive Therapy: A New Way to Practice
November 8, 2022
Hosted by Deborah Cox
In this episode, Tracy and Deborah talk about their new therapy model: ReConceive Therapy, which combines psychotherapy (including EMDR, art, and relational methods) with neuromuscular therapy, dance, and movement lessons. After years of collaboration, conversation, and study, we’re putting our methods together to create more powerful therapy that is also easier to conduct. By teaming up in session, we believe our clients will get a fuller and more rounded experience of improvement, and we’ll be able to demonstrate physiological signs of change in the moment. As research on co-therapy suggests, we can address aspects of trauma together that get lost when either of us works solo. We can bridge the inevitable referral-follow-up gap. Also, we can support each other’s biobehavioral states through limbic resonance as we work with clients, as a team, versus as two individual clinicians.

As a global community, we witness rates of depression, anxiety, and self-harm skyrocketing in the wake of more than two years of unprecedented stress and need. Helpers (caregivers, therapists, teachers, and even parents) face more demands than ever, often working hours of concentrated, solo emotional labor each day. We see helpers leaving their professions in droves, suffering their own health crises and burnout. So, who and what helps the helper? The fields of neuroscience, art, fitness, and physiology bring us insights never before available. But how do we utilize the burgeoning information to move from overwhelmed and lonely to inspired, thriving, creating, and connecting? ReConceive answers these questions. ReConceive probes connectedness for everyone navigating the mental health pandemic. Deborah Cox, psychologist, and Tracy Maxfield, body psychotherapist, explore new methods for working with our clients, and ourselves, through movement, art, and love.
