Peter Levine PhD on Trauma: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness
Join international trauma expert and author, Peter A. Levine, Ph.D. to learn how sensation-based (as opposed to emotional or rational) treatment is the key to finding relief from trauma, and how to slowly uncouple fear from the natural immobility state. Through six easy-to-follow sessions, you’ll learn Peter’s nine principles in successful trauma healing, all told through his own successful renegotiation of a personal traumatic event. You’ll also complete an in-depth review of how trauma is related to the ethnological concept of tonic immobility, the importance of the so-called “primitive” Vagus system, and how its connections through the viscera and body are a key ally in trauma therapy.
In Session — Resolving Trauma in Psychotherapy: A Somatic Approach
Watch a true master, Dr. Peter A. Levine, demonstrate a course of body-oriented trauma therapy in this extremely compelling with an Iraq Veteran (Ray) 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. Levine helps to elucidate the subtleties of his methods through commentary of his in-session recordings as well as an extensive interview.
