Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) psychobiological trauma resolution, developed by Peter A. Levine, PhD, author of the bestseller, “Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma,” is a potent approach to resolving the symptoms of trauma and chronic stress. The SE approach offers a framework to assess where your client is “stuck” in the fight, flight, or freeze responses and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixated physiological states that underlie so many trauma symptoms. Our educational model is both theoretical and highly experiential, offering you effective skills for restoring nervous system regulation and resolving trauma that can be immediately integrated into your professional practice. The three-year SE™ Professional Training is a continuing education program that will help you make an even greater difference with your clients who suffer.

The Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Institute is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the worldwide healing and prevention of trauma.

The three-year Somatic Experiencing Professional training begins in Philadelphia, PA on September 29-October 2, 2016. More information and registration available at
