1. Somatic Experiencing (SE) : What is SE?SE, a specific approach to somatic therapy, developed by Dr. Peter Levine, is based on the idea that traumatic experiences can lead to dysfunction in our nervous system, which keeps us from fully processing the experience and the resultant shock energy stays trapped in the body. SE helps us to access and address the trauma that lingers in our body, thereby enabling to work through emotional symptoms including feelings of anger, guilt and shame. SE uses SIBAM (Sensations, Imagery, Behaviour, Affect, Movement) to track-down the neural networks, which hold trauma in the brain and body.
