Somatic Experiencing® developed by Peter A. Levine Ph.D., is the naturalistic approach to the healing, resolution and prevention of trauma. Supported by cutting-edge neuroscience, this revolutionary method is based upon the realisation that human beings have an innate ability, if given the right support, to help overcome and heal the symptoms of PTSD, chronic stress and other trauma-related ailments. Somatic Experiencing® is a profoundly effective method of gently addressing trauma to help an individual return to a state of balance, relaxation and wholeness in the aftermath of violence, fear, rage, helplessness, loss and other extreme experiences.

Topics Covered on the Introduction Day:
This 1 day introduction includes some of the basic elements of this effective approach to trauma resolution:
• The basic neurobiological underpinnings of traumatic activation
• How and why the body-memory both holds and releases ‘the story’
• Courting the instinctual brain: how to facilitate the release of habituated flight/flight/freeze patterns using somatically-based interventions
• Beginning SE practical skills of tracking sensations, images and pendulation
Composed of lecture, demonstration and experiential exercises, this workshop will teach you practical skills to enhance your practice.
