Transform your ability to resolve trauma and chronic stress. 

The SE™ Professional Training program is a dynamic continuing education certificate program designed to support you in making a profound difference with those suffering from trauma or chronic stress. 


The Somatic Experiencing® (“SE™”) Professional Training provides a rich theoretical framework for understanding and addressing trauma physiology.

Our educational model is highly experiential, offering you tangible skills that can be immediately integrated into your professional practice. The training is delivered through a combination of lectures, live demonstrations, guided practice sessions with fellow students, audio visual case studies, and suggested readings. Because competent practice of SE requires direct clinical experience, as well as a refined somatic awareness and capacity for self-regulation, becoming an SE Practitioner (SEP) also entails receiving personal SE sessions to deepen your experiential knowledge of SE.

Because SE supports regulation of the autonomic nervous system, which underlies every aspect of our physical, emotional, and psychological functioning, the applications of SE are diverse. For example, by working directly with a client’s physiology, SE enhances the depth, effectiveness, and outcome of psychotherapeutic interventions focused on relational, developmental, and psychodynamic issues. SE supports mood regulation, the reworking of addictive patterns, and the prevention or resolution of PTSD. Since trauma can contribute to the formation of many complex syndromes and diseases, SE aids medical professionals in unwinding challenging medical cases. SE techniques are also effective in reducing or eliminating chronic pain and trauma-related symptoms presenting in the musculoskeletal system, making it useful for bodyworkers and other physical-care providers. 

I’ve found SE to be the most fundamental work I do with clients. I’m a clinical psychotherapist, dance therapist, Craniosacral therapist, pre and perinatal practitioner and I have two masters degrees. But what SE offered me has worked more than any other skill I’ve been trained in. It’s so basic, intuitively supportive and safe for clients. No matter what happens I know I can resort to slowing down and resourcing . . . SE is wonderful work.
