Trauma may be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Somatic Experiencing is a psychobiological method of addressing clients’ physical and emotional trauma conditions, and helps to give voice to their experiences without a need for them to retell the story.
SE was founded by Dr. Peter Levine, author of the bestseller Waking the Tiger, who developed Somatic Experiencing based on explorations of how animals deal with threat, nervous system overwhelm, and traumatic experiences on a daily basis.
SE focuses on regulation of the nervous system and offers the opportunity to engage, complete, and resolve the body’s instinctual responses to traumatic experiences. For more information regarding Somatic Experiencing and the SE professional training program, please visit: traumahealing.org/TTP
When you combine a passion for helping those who’ve been impacted by trauma, and the knowledge that comes from working with those who live in a land constantly under threat, you’re speaking about my guest today, Professor Mooli Lahad.
