Presented by Brandy Vanderheiden, LMFT, SEP
Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a potent psychobiological method for resolving trauma symptoms and relieving chronic stress. SE is designed to resolve traumatic stress and increase the capacity to negotiate stress and trauma. Developed by Dr. Peter A. Levine, author of In an Unspoken Voice, SE integrates a deep understanding of how the nervous system functions under stress and how to move it back toward health. Before we can safely access trauma, it is important to understand how our work will impact a client’s physiology and avoid overwhelm.
Learn some of the basic principles of SE and discover how it can be used in every session alongside your current modalities. The presentation will include a video of Peter Levine working with a veteran as well as experiential learning. traumahealing.org
At the end of this presentation, you will be able to:
- Articulate at least 2 ways somatic therapies broaden traditional approaches to trauma treatment.
- Identify signs of fight, flight and freeze in their clients.
