Mind, Brain, and Body in the Transformation of Trauma: A Live Online Workshop with Peter A. Levine

Gabby Cazares-Lopez

January 15 @ 11:00 am - January 16 @ 4:00 pm

$152 – $270

Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a naturalistic and neurobiological approach to healing trauma and other stress-related disorders. Somatic Experiencing provides a framework to assess where a person is “stuck” in the fight, flight, or freeze responses and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixated physiological states. It offers practical skills appropriate to various healing and helping professions including mental health, medicine, physical and occupational therapies, bodywork, addiction treatment, first response, education, and more. 

Join Peter A. Levine, PhD, the developer of Somatic Experiencing, for a rich live online workshop demonstrating how Somatic Experiencing addresses trauma through a combination of theoretical explanation and body-oriented experiential exercises. In this workshop participants learn about the underpinnings of trauma and explore how nervous system regulation and awareness of bodily sensations can transition clients out of a trauma state and into a more embodied and regulated sense of authentic self. 

In this workshop Dr. Levine guides participants with didactic lectures, Somatic Experiencing demonstrations, experiential exercises, and breakout practice groups. Learn to differentiate between top-down and bottom-up processing and discuss how they can work together. Classify the trauma response as a set of defensive bodily reactions mobilized to protect us. Understand how shame, defeat, and humiliation—associated with the original traumatic event—replay themselves repeatedly in the body. Define how trauma-based perceptions remain fundamentally unchanged until the internal experience of the body changes. 

These teachings are appropriate for healthcare professionals as well as the general public. Healthcare professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.
