European Conference on Somatic Experiencing® (SE) and Refugees

  • War trauma is a somatic experience affecting the nervous system and the body. If not treated even future generations will be affected
  • SOMATIC EXPERIENCING® is an approach that releases traumas through the body
  • Hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria and Afghanistan are currently in an urgent need for help to release their traumas
  • WHY NOT DO SOMETHING EFFECTIVELY NOW?

Background

In 2015 more than 1,5 million people entered Europe in hope of obtaining asylum. They fled from civil wars in Syria and Afghanistan.

Many of these people are suffering from severe traumas after bombings, losses, torture and other atrocities.

Many European countries have hesitated to welcome the refugees in dire need, resulting in many still living in uncertainty and feeling hopeless. These nightmares haven’t stopped. Neither has the refugee stream to Europe, even though it has diminished to EU due to the agreement with Turkey about keeping refugees out of EU. The social, medical, and psychological problems just have been accumulated in Turkey in crowded refugee camps.

Even if the civil wars in Syria and Afghanistan were to stop now, everything indicates that the European countries have to address such a large number of traumatised refugees that hasn´t been seen since The World War II. From experience we even know that the traumas will continue for future generations.

Whether the refugees have to repatriate to their countries of origin to rebuild their countries, or whether they get permission to stay permanently in Europe, there is an urgent need to prevent the traumas to further develop, and to help people to return to an active life where they regain their mental capacity to take part of the society they are living in.

The conference

The aim of the conference is to promote assistance to a larger group of asylum seekers and refugees. We see SE as an effective approach, because the focus on self regulation of the nervous system by accessing the body through awareness, touch/ self touch and movement can give an immediate trauma releasing effect even with limited and short term intervention. This requires collaboration between politicians, authorities in charge of asylum seekers, rehabilitation centres for refugees, SE practitioners, and other health professionals in the European countries.

The invited speakers will represent different approaches to deal with the mental health care of refugees and asylum seekers. Speakers will currently be announced at our website: www.traumehelig.com

There is scientific evidence that traumas are based in the nervous system and the body. An effective way of treating traumas therefore must be based on restoring the balance in the nervous system.

  • SOMATIC EXPERIENCING® is an approach developed to help people with traumas – even with multiple traumas.
  • Peter Levine Ph.d has developed the SE throughout the last 45 years.
  • It has successfully been used after the tsunami in Thailand, India and Indonesia in 2004, the hurricane Katrina in 2005, the tsunami in 2011, and many other traumatic incidents.
  • There is on-going training in Somatic Experiencing all over the world.

We will  provide a post workshop on May 7.th  with different presenters who will present body related approaches which are efficient and easy to apply a to refugees. The announcement will follow soon.

Therapeutic Presence and the Intrinsic Rhythms of SE: An SE™ Master Workshop with Dr. Peter Levine
Golden, CO (USA)
with Peter Levine, PhD
Approved for 14 CE credits through Commonwealth Education Seminars. View available approved credits.
Prerequisite: Completion of SE Beginning II.
The Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Institute and Peter A Levine PhD are pleased to introduce a new style of class that compliments the specific subjects of the (post graduate) Master Classes. This inaugural workshop is about the vital practice of “presence,” connection and “holding space”. What does it mean to be present with your client (and with yourself)? How do you connect? How can you be vulnerable and authentically establish ones’ self as a committed partner in healing? In this regards, SE™ shares certain core aspects with Shamanism practices. Another major topic of this workshop is the intrinsic rhythms of an SE session. In each session, you guide clients through the multiple phases of activation, pendulation, titration, release, orientation and settling. How can one know when a cycle has completed? How do you know when to rest, and when to move deeper, and then when to return to here-and-now orientation and review of the session?

**Price Reduced! Now only USD 700 for a member, USD 800 for a nonmember. Not yet a member or need to renew? Sign up or renew your membership today. We have reduced this fee in order to increase accessibility of this training to more of our SE Community – we hope to see you there at this unique opportunity to learn from Dr. Peter Levine!**

Transferred ownership of Somatic Experiencing®

Greetings:

In June of this year, 2016, Peter Levine formally transferred ownership of Somatic Experiencing® – the intellectual property, trademark, and all copyrighted material present and future – to the Foundation for Human Enrichment for its safe keeping and for taking his life’s work forward to future generations. The Foundation now has the honor and responsibility for maintaining the quality and fidelity of SE™ worldwide. We will do this by ensuring that the presentation of SE by anyone is formally approved.

Currently, only the following approved SE training programs are authorized:

  • FHE approved SE faculty teaching the 3-year training program including Introductions,
  • FHE approved post-advanced SEP classes offered by certificate partners,
  • FHE approved short program providers,
  • FHE approved and sponsored membership webinar presenters,
  • FHE approved 3-hour and 6-hour Basics providers,
  • 1-hour Basics presentation by SEPs on a public service basis (free to attendees).

Any other training programs that are based in SE, refer to SE, or use the SE principles labeled as something else, are unauthorized and therefore violate legal use.

The FHE has the published mission to expand the use of SE across the globe, reaching those in need, and therefore be a healing force in the world. One of our strategies for doing this is to significantly expand the number of people and programs that legally teach SE. We do this by inviting all those parties interested in helping us achieve this goal to seek prior approval from FHE in making use of the approved teaching content, materials, and methods, in any teaching settings.

Teaching SE in other teaching settings means that any of the SE concepts are taught as part of a therapeutic program, whether specifically referred to as SE, or not. Teaching SE also means that a monetary transaction is part of the program. This includes formal registration fees, voluntary donations, fees paid directly to the presenter or a host organization, fees paid to assistants, organizers, and coordinators. In summary, if there is any form of monetary transaction, the teaching of SE must be approved by FHE.  Speaking about SE on a completely voluntary, public service, basis falls outside of this policy and is allowed, however, using the 1-hour prepared SE presentation is strongly recommended for non-faculty members.

Practices that constitute illegal and/or unethical competitive practices include:

  • Using SE training information such as rosters or in-class created participant lists to promote non-FHE approved training programs
  • Using information gained from participant and assistant quality surveys to promote non-FHE approved trainings or slander FHE approved trainings
  • Using directly, or indirectly, material found in the FHE curriculum and/or training manuals in non-FHE approved training programs
  • Using any part of the collected works of Peter Levine (including papers, books, videos), without proper credit, during non-FHE approved training programs
  • Representing yourself as a partner of any kind with FHE/SETI when presenting material at non-FHE approved trainings
  • Teaching SE in any form without approval from FHE.  This includes workshops targeted toward specific professionals or specific therapeutic modalities (i.e. fire fighters, school personnel, refuge workers, body workers)
  • Offering SE trainings without gaining approval by FHE prior to their initiation

Of no concern to the Foundation are competitive products that are not based in SE concepts, in other words, have been created independently of Peter Levine’s work. Many such programs exist.

Referring to a program as derivative of Peter’s work (either as an expansion of SE or a focus area for SE application), when created by an SE trained professional, the program must seek prior approval by the FHE as one of the programs listed above.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

Warm regards,

Brian Dale
Executive Director
Foundation for Human Enrichment
