Trauma happens to all of us. It is a sense of overwhelm that results in physical, emotional, and spiritual distress. It can also be a pathway towards compassion and transformation. In this module, you will learn the basics of Somatic Experiencing and how the body may be the primary resource to resolve trauma and facilitate healing. Based on the work of Peter Levine, you will learn how to help clients establish a sense of safety and neutrality in the body so that old trauma that is stuck in dysregulated patterns may be moved through and completed.
