This unique workshop brings together retired U.S. Army Colonel Dr. Charles W. Hoge, a leading expert in treating military-related PTSD, and Peter A. Levine, Ph.D. trauma expert and developer of Somatic Experiencing (SE™). Using an SE and evidence-based lens, they will explore the nuances of working with veterans exposed to combat and non-combat trauma. They will outline how Somatic Experiencing is compatible with the core components of traditional evidenced-based trauma-focused therapies and ways in which SE practitioners and licensed therapists working with diverse populations can enhance the art of trauma-informed care.
After, participants will be able to
Understand the core components of evidence-based trauma-focused therapies
Understand the core components of Somatic Experiencing
Integrate SE with evidenced-based models to enhance treatment
Increase cultural awareness when working with veterans and service members (including dispelling myths and stereotypes)
Define the paradox of PTSD in the military occupational context
Implement the SE skills toolkit for combat trauma, and optimize the application of trauma-informed therapy
The Ergos Institute of Somatic Education is managing this workshop as a part of the Conversations with Peter series.
