    Somatic Experiencing® (SETM) is a gentle and potent psycho-biological approach to the prevention and resolution of trauma and stress-related symptoms. Developed by Peter A. Levine, PhD, bestselling author of the book, “Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma,” SE is based on the study of how animals in the wild process and recover from threat. It offers a framework to assess where your client is ‘stuck’ in the fight, flight, freeze, or collapse responses and provides clinical tools to resolve the fixated physiological states that underlie so many trauma symptoms. Introductory Workshops available in Seattle Oct., Dec., 2014 and Jan. 2015.
