Description

Don’t Miss this Once in a Lifetime Workshop with Trauma Expert, Peter Levine, Ph.D.

  • Learn from the Originator and Developer of Somatic Experiencing®
  • Dr. Levine’s SIBAM model for Successful Trauma Healing
  • Peter Speaks on the Full Scope of his Life’s Work & Discovery

Join international trauma expert and author, Peter A. Levine, Ph.D. to learn how sensation-based (as opposed to emotional or rational) treatment is the key inroad into our trauma, and how to gradually uncouple fear from the natural immobility state. He will discuss the important principles in successful trauma healing, all told through his own successful renegotiation of a personal traumatic event.

Representing the full scope of his life’s work, Dr. Levine will discuss the evolutionary underpinnings of trauma. The day will include an in-depth review of how trauma is related to the ethnological concept of tonic immobility, as well as the roadmap of the Polyvagal system – a fascinating neurophysiological model for understanding how we shift between the states of fight-or-flight, shutdown, and social engagement. Dr. Levine will also provide simple containment tools to help you develop your awareness of these state changes in order to more effectively engage your client in trauma therapy.
