Somatic Experiencing®

Training Edmonton

A body oriented approach to healing trauma

So What is SE?

Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Resolution

Somatic Experiencing® (SE™), developed by Peter A. Levine, PhD,

author of the bestseller, “Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma,” is a

potent psychobiological approach to resolving the symptoms of

trauma and chronic stress. Whether you are a medical or mental

health professional, addictions counselor, first responder, body

worker, educator, alternative medicine practitioner, or other helping

professional, the three-year SE™ Professional Training is a continuing education program that will help you make an even greater difference with your clients who suffer.

SE offers a framework to assess where your client is “stuck” in the

fight, flight, or freeze responses and provides clinical tools to resolve

these fixated physiological states that underlie so many trauma symptoms. Our educational model is both theoretical and highly experiential, offering you effective skills for restoring nervous system regulation and resolving trauma that can be immediately integrated into your professional practice.


How SE Works

And How It May Benefit Your Practice


Instead of focusing on the re-telling of traumatic events or personal history, SE aims to identify what is interfering with people’s internal threat-recovery process and helps clients develop tools for restoring their innate capacity to rebound from overwhelming experiences. By facilitating the completion of self-protective responses

and releasing survival energy that has become bound in the body, SE addresses the root cause of trauma symptoms.

Learn practical and effective skills that help resolve trauma without re-traumatization. These gentle, powerful interventions will inspire and empower your clients, restoring resilience and

providing them with a greater capacity to enjoy life.

Improve clinical outcomes. Enhance the depth and effectiveness of therapy by including body based awareness, somatic interventions and knowledge of the nervous systems response to trauma.

Have an extraordinary life experience. Many students find the SE training professionally and personally

transformative. Experience the power of compassionate healing and meaningful growth for yourself and those you serve.

Reduce compassion fatigue. The SE training helps increase your own resilience as a provider so that you have more energy and stamina for your work and experience greater pleasure and satisfaction in serving.


Somatic Experiencing® has become an integral part of how I practice as a clinician and how I understand the impacts of trauma. It has given me tools to help my clients understand and overcome the ways that past life events continue to hijack their current-day experience.
