Somatic Experiencing: Beginning I, II & III

2018

Develop foundational knowledge and skills in the SE biophysiological model for the resolution of trauma.
Typically consists of three 4-day live training modules, spaced 2 to 4 months apart.

  • Understand the physiology of traumatic stress and its effect on the autonomic nervous system (ANS)

  • Practice the fundamental SE method of tracking sensation to access responses in the ANS

  • Learn the neurophysiology of each aspect of the threat response: defensive orientation, fight/flight/freeze, deactivation and completion, and exploratory orienting

  • Develop skill in working with the SE model of tracking sensation to support completion of the threat-response cycle and incomplete survival responses

  • Learn how to “titrate” (modulate) the SE trauma-renegotiation process to ensure healthy integration of experience

  • Begin to integrate Porges' Polyvagal Theory of ANS function

  • Understand the SE model of SIBAM (Sensation, Image, Behavior, Affect, Meaning) and its significance in trauma

  • Explore coupling dynamics—the over- and under-association of the elements of SIBAM and elements of physiological responses to traumatically-stressing experiences

  • Support clients in re-establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries

  • Learn to identify, normalize, and stabilize traumatic reactions

  • Acquire brief intervention skills that provide long-term solutions to acute and chronic symptoms of trauma

  • Explore the integration of SE into ongoing professional practice

  • Explore the appropriate use of touch in the context of SE
