Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress related disorders. In this course, Dr. Peter A Levine explores how trauma not only affects the individual, but whole communities, nations, and the global community.
Dr. Levine will share the principles of Somatic Experiencing and tools we can apply to ourselves and others, including strangers and children. These skills will help prevent traumatic reactions from occurring in the aftermath of exposure to threat and overwhelm. We’ll also learn how to work with the unpredictability of natural disasters.
These tools and skills, offered in this course, will help us rebound and promote resilience during these challenging times.
