Clinical Tools from Somatic Experiencing: How to Rewire Implicit Trauma Memory through Physiology

Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress related disorders that was developed by Peter A. Levine, PhD. In this recording, we will explore the implications of body-oriented psychotherapy and recent findings in neuroscience, on how the brain and body deals with emotional information, while also providing an understanding of effective therapeutic action. Through a combination of theoretical explanation and body-oriented exercises, participants begin to develop a deep and intrinsic body awareness that helps to draw them into the vibrant experience resilience and wholeness. This lecture is geared for psychotherapists of all types, as well as for physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, bodyworkers, educators, and those curious about their own healing process.
