Here's what's covered in each section:

Peter Levine PhD on Trauma: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness
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 to finding relief from trauma, and how to slowly uncouple fear from the natural immobility state. Through six easy-to-follow sessions, you'll learn Peter's nine principles in successful trauma healing, all told through his own successful renegotiation of a personal traumatic event. You'll also complete an in-depth review of how trauma is related to the ethnological concept of tonic immobility, the importance of the so-called "primitive" Vagus system, and how its connections through the viscera and body are a key ally in trauma therapy.
In Session — Resolving Trauma in Psychotherapy: A Somatic Approach
Watch a true master, Dr. Peter A. Levine, demonstrate a course of body-oriented trauma therapy in this extremely compelling with an Iraq Veteran (Ray) diagnosed with severe PTSD. Working with Ray’s presenting symptoms over the course of five sessions, Levine introduces a number of essential trauma resolution techniques that markedly improve Ray’s Tourette-like convulsions, as well as his overall pain and emotional outlook.

Levine developed Somatic Experiencing® based on the premise that trauma overwhelms the nervous system and that it needs to be addressed somatically before emotional processing is possible. Levine helps to elucidate the subtleties of his methods through commentary of his in-session recordings as well as an extensive interview.

What is Somatic Experiencing®?

When fight & flight aren't options, we freeze as if "playing dead." But this reaction needs to run its course letting the massive energy that was prepared for fight or flight to discharge through shakes and trembling. If the immobility phase doesn't resolve, then that charge stays trapped, and the body thinks it is still under threat. Somatic Experiencing® works to release this stored energy and turn off the threat alarm that causes severe dysregulation and dissociation.

In Somatic Experiencing®, the traumatic event isn't what caused the trauma, it is the overwhelmed response to the perceived life threat that is causing an unbalanced nervous system. The goal is to access the body memory of the event, not the story.

Somatic Experiencing® professes a body first approach to dealing with the problematic (and oftentimes physical) symptoms of trauma. Your sessions won't be about reclaiming memories or changing thoughts and beliefs about how we feel, but rather the sensations that lie underneath our feelings and uncovering our habitual behavior patterns to these feelings.
