The SE™ Trauma Institute is dedicated to resolving trauma worldwide by providing state-of-the-art professional training and public education in the Somatic Experiencing® method. SE™ is a powerful psychobiological method for addressing physical and emotional trauma, PTSD, overwhelm, and stress related conditions. Through our membership association we support the self-organization of a broad international network of passionate skillful SE™ practitioners who serve individuals in need and communities in crisis around the globe.
The Somatic Experiencing® method is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.
