The Somatic Experiencing ® Trauma Institute offers professional training in the resolution of traumatic stress. We seek to create new partnerships with diverse populations in order to better serve professionals and communities that have not previously had access to Somatic Experiencing ®. We are initiating conscious efforts to reduce barriers to attendance due to financial hardship and to support diversity and accessibility as part of the upcoming 3 year-training, scheduled to begin in Silver Spring, MD on February 14-17, 2020 at Crossings Healing & Wellness. All qualified professionals are welcome, those who represent the communities of color we seek to serve are, in particular, encouraged to apply. Donations to support scholarships are welcome and appreciated. Visit the link below and select “Silver Spring Scholarship” to designate funds to this particular cause.

"I have been very grateful for the scholarship received for SE training. For most of the refugees/immigrants with whom I work, mental health struggles invoke stigma, talking about trauma seems counter-intuitive and therapy itself is a very new concept. The SE training has provided me with a more holistic way of working with the trauma my refugee clients have experienced, offering principles and interventions that better align with the somatic expression of symptoms they often exhibit and that allow me to adapt to their cultural expressions of distress and the ways they self-regulate and find well-being. At our non-profit, MORE (www.more-empowerment.org), we are small and have limited resources, but attempt to respond to a great need. The SE scholarship has increased our capacity to do this."
"My gratitude for SETI is great. There is no way I would be able to train in this modality of therapy if it were not for the generosity of the community at SETI. I am a true believer in the power of Somatic Experiencing Therapy."
