An Introduction to Somatic Experiencing ® Student Fee

Sales price $100.00

Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Patricia Berendsen, will present Somatic Experiencing® (SE), developed by Peter Levine, PhD., a profoundly effective method of gently healing trauma based on the fact that our nervous systems inherently know how to return to balance if given the right support. Foundational to SE is the understanding of our biological capacity to heal and that we can learn the skills necessary to facilitate this natural process.

This workshop, An Introduction to Somatic Experiencing: A Model for Trauma Resolution, is suitable for anyone who works in a helping profession. Clinical, medical, community professionals and educators who deal with the aftermath of trauma can learn how to recognize and support this healing in the context of their work and in their own experience. Through some basic theory and practice, you will have a ‘sense’ of the power of listening and responding to and from the body. Join us for this unique and lively workshop composed of lecture, demonstrations, and hands on exercises.
