Somatic Experiencing therapy offers a framework to assess where an individual has gotten “stuck” from an event and provides clinical tools for trauma treatment to resolve the fixated physiological states. The Somatic Experiencing, or SE™, approach releases traumatic shock, transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental trauma. In fact, SE provides effective skills to address a variety of issues related to mental health and addiction, which is why it’s so often used in trauma therapy. Trauma may begin as acute stress from a real or perceived threat or as the end result of cumulative stress. These stressors can come from accidents, invasive medical procedures, sexual or physical assault or sustained abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, exposure to combat, natural disasters, loss or some form of ongoing fear or conflict. This stress can seriously impair your ability to function and may result in acting out or impaired behavior.
