Using the Body To Heal Trauma: Integrating Self- Regulation and Somatic Experiencing Interventions

Workshop Description: Somatic Experiencing, the life’s work of Peter Levine Ph.D, is a body oriented approach used to heal trauma and other stress disorders. Somatic Experiencing is a powerful psychobiological method for addressing physical and emotional trauma and other stress related conditions. Complex trauma impacts one’s ability to self-regulate on emotional and behavioral levels. Somatic Experiencing offers a framework to assess where a person may be stuck in the flight, fight or freeze responses. This 1 day training will allow attendees to enhance their knowledge of the theory behind Somatic Experiencing, gain useful treatment tools and strategies to integrate into their current clinical practice with the trauma population.
