Watch a true master, Dr. Peter A. Levine, demonstrate a course of body-oriented trauma therapy in this extremely compelling and in-depth video with an Iraq Veteran diagnosed with severe PTSD.
Working with Ray’s presenting symptoms over the course of five sessions, Levine introduces a number of essential trauma resolution techniques that markedly improve Ray’s Tourette-like convulsions, as well as his overall pain and emotional outlook. Levine developed Somatic Experiencing® based on the premise that trauma overwhelms the nervous system and that it needs to be addressed somatically before emotional processing is possible. Thorough commentary by Levine, as well as an extensive interview, helps to elucidate the subtleties of his methods. You will walk away from this video with a sound understanding of this approach to trauma work. This method can be integrated with and add richness to a number of therapeutic modalities and can be used to treat all manner of trauma – from car accidents, surgeries, child abuse, experiences of violence, and so on.
By watching this video, you will:
- Learn the nine building blocks of the Somatic Experiencing® approach
- Understand the physiological orientation that underpins this method of trauma resolution
- Have the tools to integrate basic somatic methods into your clinical work with trauma clients
