SOMATIC EXPERIENCING – Introductory training with KAVI GEMIN

Somatic Experiencing – Uvodna obuka (vodi: Kavi Gemin)

Centre for Inner Development and Joy invites you to the Introductory Somatic Experiencing (SE) Training, to be held online using the zoom application on April 3-4, 2021.

This is an introductory training for anyone interested in learning more about the importance and basic techniques of working with traumatic experiences. Also, this introductory training is one of the prerequisites for anyone interested in attending a three-year SE training (SE professional training). The Somatic Experiencing® Professional Program is being implemented worldwide and provides professionals from different fields of work with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully treat PTSD as well as developmental and shock traumas. The SE® approach is body-oriented and helps restore the self-regulation ability of the nervous system, thus enhancing the client’s capacity to fully enjoy a wide range of human experience.

Somatic Experiencing® (SE®) is a natural approach to healing, resolution and prevention of trauma developed by Peter A. Levine Ph.D. This revolutionary method, supported by the latest knowledge of neurology and psychology, is based on the idea that trauma is not exclusively a psychological phenomenon, but a complex of psychological and physiological responses to an intense and overwhelming experience: “Trauma is not in an event, but in our nervous system”. Our response to traumatic experience is primarily physiological and therefore trauma cannot be resolved solely through our cognitive capacities and skills. At SE, we work to complete the complex physiological response of our nervous system that was initiated but did not end when we were exposed to the danger.

Introductory SE training consists of lectures, discussions, demonstrations and offers significant personal experience through interactive exercises.

The training will be held in English with translation to Serbian.

The participants will receive a two-day introductory training certificate.
