Dedicated to Resolving Trauma Worldwide
Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) is a powerful method of overcoming trauma via the mind-body connection, developed by Peter A. Levine, PhD to address the effects of trauma. Dr. Levine developed this approach after observing that prey animals, whose lives are routinely threatened in the wild, are able to recover readily by physically releasing the energy they accumulate during stressful events. Humans, on the other hand, often override these natural ways of regulating the nervous system with feelings of shame and pervasive thoughts, judgments, and fears. Somatic Experiencing® aims to help people move past the place where they might be 'stuck' in processing a traumatic event.
