Trauma happens to everyone in different shapes and forms. While events like wars, accidents, and natural disasters are labeled as traumatic by most people, anything can come under this broad term by people’s subjective experience. Regardless of the type of trauma, it can either have a transitory or an ongoing impact on the physical and psychological states of the body. While some people easily overcome these impacts, others can be deeply affected and may start negatively perceiving their environment and themselves. As a result, the brain gets rewired to maladaptive mental and physical responses, forcing the body to get stuck in a never-ending stress response.

If you consider yourself to be stuck in a vicious cycle of trauma, Peter Levine healing trauma programs can benefit you.

Peter A Levin is a proud developer of Somatic Experiencing (SE), a neurobiological and naturalistic way to heal trauma. He has invested more than 50 years of his life in this program that aims to transform lives through healing trauma. The mission of this trauma program is to support resilience and trauma resolution by using culturally responsive professional training, research, education, and outreach in global communities. The program targets the “helpers” or the people directly involved with individuals experiencing trauma and trains them to practice the skill of somatic experiencing.

As a body-oriented therapeutic model, SE is widely applicable in multiple settings, including medicine, teaching, coaching, physical therapy, and psychotherapy.
