SEP Certificates Are Going Digital

SEI's process for issuing SEP and Provisional SEP Certificate Approvals has undergone a modern update! Upon approval, SEPs will now be emailed an official PDF copy of their certificate with a new digital seal. The digital seal is official and legally binding, which will meet licensing boards’ requirements. Students are welcome to print the certificate on whatever paper works best for them – it prints beautifully on plain paper as well as resume quality paper or cardstock.

For further questions regarding the SEP Approval Process, please email programsupport@traumahealing.org.

Simone Biles Rocks It in Oh So Many Ways

By Rebekkah LaDyne, MS, SEP

“Incidentally, if she had walked off of that Olympic stage limping from a broken leg, I believe we all would have gotten it.  But because her injuries were unseeable, she has received unforgivable disbelief, minimization, and ultimately hate.”

SE Community Conversations

Mental Wellness In the Line of Duty: Supporting Public Safety Professionals

September 10, 2021 | 12 PM MT

In this month’s SE Community Conversation, we recognize the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Come hear a dynamic panel discuss the unique neurophysiology of emergency responders, hear about the hidden challenges emergency responders face, and learn about resources available. This community gathering will focus on how SE, a neurobiologically based trauma resolution method, can be a resource to public safety professionals such as fire fighters and law enforcement, as well as to mental health professionals who work with these communities.
