Personal Programs and

Professional Trainings

When life serves us stress, we can volley back…

Whether it’s everyday demands, chronic and ongoing challenges, or the impact of traumatic stress that you are facing, you can begin to flow with the currents of life instead of against them.

Learn how to support your nervous system from the inside out.

Reconnect with your innate resilience and build greater capacity for life’s challenges.

Whether you are interested in self-care or you are a professional looking to support your clients and bolster their healing capacity, the Nervous System RESET personal programs and Professional Training will help you access the skills and awareness necessary to master your dance with stress.

Personal RESET (for the General Public):

The Personal RESET is 6-session program that spans 3 months of private and ongoing learning and mentorship under Jessica’s guidance.  Nervous system regulation and re-education work is delicate and takes time to cultivate.  Pacing things this way allows you to integrate the information and to learn the somatic skills gradually and apply them regularly over time.  The goal of this program is to support you in making lasting, self-care changes that will help transform your life.

All sessions are conducted via video conference so they can be arranged from the comfort of your home or office, whichever you prefer.  All you need is a strong internet signal and a laptop or tablet with a camera.  This also allows Jessica to work with clients from any geographical region.

The cost for this program is $365 which includes the 6 sessions as well as a guidebook that you download and work with between your sessions.  Clients find this guidebook to be a helpful tool  in integrating their learning.

The Personal RESET can also be offered in a group format that works well for organizations wanting to bring effective self-care strategies into their workplace.  The group format combines an initial, in-person workshop blended with weekly individual video conference sessions to create a deep, experiential process.

For more information on group offerings, please contact Jessica directly.

Content covered in the program:

  • Basic physiology of the stress response
  • The body’s natural protection and recovery responses
  • Cultivating and tracking internal safety
  • Signs and indicators of activation and calming cycles in your stress response
  • Orienting exercises and tracking body sensations
  • Regulation skills and approaches
  • Working with the restorative tremor as a regulation tool
  • An understanding of the social nervous system and the vagus nerve
  • Building an individually-calibrated approach to self-practice so that you are able to continue supporting your nervous system after the series is over

Nervous System Know-How for Practitioners and Clinicians: Introduction to Nervous System RESET

Nervous System Know-How for Practitioners and Clinicians is an introductory workshop that provides a theoretical and experiential overview of the Nervous System RESET process. All participants will leave with an overview of the comprehensive neurophysiology of stress and trauma, as well as an understanding of how to begin to cultivate a neurophysiology of safety within their own bodies.  Participants will also leave with an assortment of practical somatic skills for quieting the nervous system and promoting resilience.  Because additional learning, skills, and training are needed before one is ready to deliver this transformative approach, participants will not be able to use the Nervous System RESET process directly with clients without first completing the full Professional Training Program (see details below).

The introductory workshop consists of the following minimum core requirements and serves as a pre-requisite to the official Nervous System RESET Professional Training Program:

  • Introductory Workshop, 2-day training in-person
  • 2 required personal supervision sessions (via video conference) post workshop as follow-up mentorship for integrating the theory and practices
Program Content

Workshop Content:

  • The stress-trauma response and the stress-trauma continuum
  • Anatomy, neurology, biochemistry of the stress response
  • Polyvagal Theory and the role of the Vagus nerve
  • Adverse Childhood Experiences
  • Exploration of internal safety and how to track/cultivate signals of safety in the body
  • Understanding a neurophysiology of safety
  • Interoception/Understanding how to track and follow body sensations
  • Exploration of basic orienting and resourcing exercises
  • Understanding of the restorative tremor response and how it works as a regulation tool
  • Physiology of tremors (where tremors come from)
  • Experiential introduction to the restorative tremor
  • Exploration and application of regulation, self-regulation, co-regulation
  • Understanding of common defense responses (Flooding, Freezing, Dissociating) and how to work with them

What People Are Saying. . .

  • Jessica Schaffer is a wonderfully insightful provider and trainer. She has a gentle, respectful and grounded presence that promotes healing for her clients. Her unique, integrated approach offers a knowing sense when it comes to working with people as she accounts for the whole: body, mind and nervous system. Her commitment to understanding the science behind the healing is apparent in her clinical work and when teaching clinicians. She is dedicated to emphasizing with both clients and practitioners the need to attune to the sense of comfort and safety within. In doing so she empowers individuals to internalize this experience and gain their own attunement and regulation within. As a psychotherapist I have learned so much from Jessica’s expertise in the body and nervous system as it relates to trauma. It is clear that working with clients to attune to their body and mind is a necessary and integral piece in laying the foundation for the path to healing. There is no question that knowledge and guidance from Jessica has made me a better provider on so many levels.

    Christa Hines LCSW, CADCII
  • Over the course of a year, I had the privilege of having Jessica as a teacher, guide, and mentor. From the instant I met her I was struck by her calming presence and open heart. I felt that she really understood me and cared about me. This immediately helped me feel at ease and open to learning new concepts. Learning from Jessica was easy because she is very clear, concise, smart, and engaging. She was able to meet the diverse learning needs of all the individuals in my cohort. I left each class with a deeper body of knowledge that could be immediately integrated in my career. I highly recommend Jessica as a teacher. Knowing her is a privilege. Learning from Jessica has deeply impacted my life which in turn has helped me to be a better therapist.

    Shanti O'Connor Licensed Counselor, Registered Yoga Instructor
  • In the 23 years I have been attending trainings and in my 44 years of life, I have never met someone like Jessica. Her ability to hold space for and keep safe a diverse group of people is absolutely beautiful.  Her compassionate and skillful way of communicating is awe inspiring. Her organization and time management are impeccable. The content of Jessica's training has forever changed both my personal and professional life. Her understanding of the nervous system and the human organism is deep and vast and the ease with which she presents complex concepts is a joy.  My newfound understanding of the nervous system has facilitated a whole new level of healing in my bodywork practice. My clients are amazed when they become aware of the subtleties of their nervous systems and their innate ability to come into balance. My own personal journey of healing has been profound with Jessica's guidance. I have so much respect for Jessica and I hold her as a mentor of the highest order.

    Kelley Curtis Licensed Massage Therapist
  • Jessica is an extraordinary trainer.  Her immense organizational skills, her commitment to excellence, her quick response to email and questions from students, her advocacy for her students, and her warmth and genuine caring all contribute to her fine work. In addition, her passion, openness, and continued curiosity about the method make her trainings very engaging.  Her enthusiasm is contagious!

    Denise Jessup Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
  • Jessica has a wonderful ability to take complicated neurobiology and communicate it in a way that is rich, tangible, and accessible to all. Her sense of each individual's nervous system is second nature to her. Working with her I felt safe, seen, and empowered. I recommend her as a trainer. I feel fully prepared to teach after being trained by Jessica.

    Louise Rose Naturopathic Doctor
  • Jessica Schaffer is knowledgeable, intuitive, and respectful, with astounding organizational skills, an eye for detail, and the gift of clarity in her teaching. I found her an earnest, committed trainer always concerned that we get what we need to become safe and intelligent instructors. I found her ability to communicate the most subtle wording and body language useful in working with clients amazing and would highly recommend her as your trainer.  

    Mary Makenna RN, Health Educator
  • I have tremendous respect for Jessica's integrity, her knowledge and her skill, both in her personal work with clients and her work with students.  She holds very high standards for her students and is incredibly generous in her efforts to make sure that each person meets and exceeds those standards through her skillful feedback and the many written tools she provides.  I would not hesitate to send a family member to a provider trained by Jessica, because I know they’ll be an excellent provider.  

    Debra Burchard EEMCP-AP, EnKA-III
  • I entered the training from the field of Mental Health and I was amazed at how well Jessica both honored my past experience as well as held space for me to be a complete beginner. She is an excellent teacher who has a talent for conveying difficult and technical material in a way that is digestible and fun. Throughout my time working with Jessica, I witnessed her amazing work ethic, moral character and compassion and felt highly fortunate to have her as my trainer.
