What is Somatic Experiencing®

Somatic Experiencing® (SE® or Somatic Experiencing) is a naturalistic approach to trauma healing, resolution and prevention developed by Peter A. Levine Ph.D.

Backed by cutting-edge neuroscience, this revolutionary method is based on the finding that human beings have an innate ability, if given the right support, to help overcome and heal the symptoms of “post-traumatic stress”, chronic stress. and other symptoms related to trauma and illness..

Somatic Experiencing® is a profoundly effective method of treating trauma that assists the individual to return to a state of balance and wholeness in the aftermath of violence, fear, anger, powerlessness, loss and other extreme experiences or childhood traumas..

What’s new with Somatic Experiencing®?

Somatic Experiencing® aims to remove the person from the state of pain, from imprisonment within their own body, so that they can interact with the external environment in a healthy way. An intervention based on the tradition of somatic education, a body-oriented therapy, structured on neurophysiological studies of the interconnections between body-brain-mind and on observations made in animals and humans in states of stress.

Peter Levine states “the trauma is not in the event, it’s in the nervous system”.
And from his conception of trauma, he built a theoretical and practical model, with a naturalistic approach, which employs the awareness of bodily sensations to help individuals in the treatment of trauma.

Levine noted that wild animals, despite being routinely threatened, are not traumatized.
This is because they use innate mechanisms to discharge the high levels of energy that were activated in the Nervous System: after executing defensive behaviors (fighting, fleeing and “freezing or playing dead”), they return to the original state of equilibrium.

The understanding given to us today by the neurosciences allows us to understand the innate mechanisms of human beings to overcome symptoms related to trauma and disease, with the proper guidance that the SE® approach brings
