Somatic Experiencing Practitioner Training with Berns Galloway, M.Ed, SEP, CCC

Beginning 3: April 6-9, 2018

This training, developed by Dr. Peter Levine, offers participants the opportunity to learn a physiologically based approach to trauma resolution. Our bodies house the results of nervous system overwhelm – trauma, and the renegotiation of the trauma comes from attending to the nervous system processes. Over the total of eight modules that this training offers, you will learn to detect and respond to the physiological and psychological effects of the disorganization of our nervous systems.
