January 23, 2019 9:00am – 10:00am MST with Sarah Schlote, MA, RP, CCC, SEP More and more people are drawn to programs that focus on healing with horses to support their trauma recovery. This presentation offers a review of the psychophysiology of trauma in mammals (in particular, horses and humans) through the lens of Somatic Experiencing® and the polyvagal theory. Attachment theory and the importance of safety and co-regulation will be also be discussed as the foundation for relational and boundary repair and renegotiation for both humans and horses. Limbic remodeling, heart rate variability research, trauma-informed principles, and the 9-step model of SE™ will also be discussed in the context of horse-human interactions, along with case examples.

February 20, 2019 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm MST with Elizabeth Anable, PhD, LMHC, SEP This webinar will present the findings of Professor Anable’s pilot study on somatic skills for self-regulation. In her dissertation research, Professor Anable examined the physiological signatures of orienting and interoception in an undergraduate student population. Using electrocardiogram, data was collected on heart rate, skin conductance, and respiratory sinus arrhythmia. Findings showed distinct physiological responses to both orienting and interoception and these responses were correlated to significant reductions in the students’ self-reported stress levels. This webinar will provide attendees with an overview of these results, as well as a discussion of the relevance of this preliminary study to the viewer’s clinical practice.

March 7, 2019 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm MST with Alaine D. electricity for beginners Duncan, M.Ac., L.Ac., SEP The Five Steps of the Self Protective Response that Peter Levine describes in both two and four-legged animals are reflected in Acupuncture and Asian Medicine’s (AAM) Five Element Theory. Exploring this interface can illuminate the resonant relationships these Elements have with certain emotions, organs, tissues, functional challenges and spiritual longings in trauma survivors. ortega y gasset obras completas AAM associates the Wood Element with Spring, the Liver and Gall Bladder, and the emotion anger — as well as our tendons and ligaments, eyes and blood. The energy of the Wood helps us to mobilize a response to threats in a strategic and successful way. When it is working well, we find benevolence and insight. The social implications of repeatedly thwarted mobilization responses are significant; we may become habituated to explosive anger, narrow vision, rigidity in our thoughts and our tissues. This webinar will explore approaches to transform the impact of thwarted mobilization responses on the body, mind, emotions and spirit of trauma survivors. It will describe the critical importance of regulation in the Wood Element for helping individuals and communities navigate the complex dynamics of threat and discover solutions that are benevolent and life-enhancing. It will elucidate body-informed clinical skills for somatic psychotherapists, acupuncturists, physical care, and medical providers.

Duncan, M.Ac., L.Ac., SEP The Five Steps of the Self Protective Response that Peter Levine describes in both two and four-legged animals are reflected in Acupuncture and Asian Medicine’s (AAM) Five Element Theory. Exploring this interface can illuminate the resonant relationships these Elements have with certain emotions, organs, tissues, functional challenges and spiritual longings in trauma survivors. AAM associates the Fire Element with Summer, the Heart and Small Intestine and two additional organs, under-recognized in the West – the Pericardium or Heart Protector, and the Triple Heater. gas ark The Fire Element is associated with the emotion joy, our capacity for social engagement and connection, and the function of our mind. The energy of the Fire directs our body to respond to threats, and to signal equanimity once the threat is over. It mirrors the function of the Ventral Vagus Nerve and the neurological platform of social engagement described by Stephen Porges. The social implications of thwarted messages of equanimity are significant. We won’t know that the threat is over. Our thoughtful mind becomes unavailable, our capacity for social engagement is compromised, and we may have panic attacks or cardiac symptoms. This webinar will explore approaches to transform the impact of a lack of cardiac coherence in the body, mind, emotions and spirit of trauma survivors. It will describe the critical importance of regulation in the Fire Element for helping individuals and communities come into relationship with themselves and others, find equanimity and build resilience. gas in babies home remedies It will elucidate body-informed clinical skills for somatic psychotherapists, acupuncturists, physical care, and medical providers.

August 8, 2019 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm MST with Alaine D. Duncan, M.Ac., L.Ac., SEP The Five Steps of the Self Protective Response that Peter Levine describes in both two and four-legged animals are reflected in Acupuncture and Asian Medicine’s (AAM) Five Element Theory. Exploring this interface can illuminate the resonant relationships these Elements have with certain emotions, organs, tissues, functional challenges and spiritual longings in trauma survivors. AAM associates the Earth Element with Late Summer – a fifth season in the agricultural calendar – and the Stomach and Spleen, the emotion sympathy, our capacity to both give and receive comfort, and the vitality of our flesh. The social implications of an inability to “digest the gristle” in life are significant. We won’t be able to assimilate life lessons. We will make the same mistakes over and over without knowing how to do it differently. Our intestinal flora and visceral brain become compromised, affecting immune function, production of neuro-transmitters and assimilation of nutrients. This webinar will explore approaches to transform the freeze response in the visceral brain and its impact on the body, mind, emotions and spirit of trauma survivors. It will describe the critical importance of regulation in the Earth Element in the context of pre and peri-natal trauma and the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences on morbidity, mortality and public health. It will elucidate body-informed clinical skills for somatic psychotherapists, acupuncturists, physical care, and medical providers.

Exploring this interface can illuminate the resonant relationships these Elements have with certain emotions, organs, tissues, functional challenges and spiritual longings in trauma survivors. AAM associates the Metal Element with the Autumn, the Lung and Colon, the emotion grief, our capacity for somatic mindfulness and interoceptive curiosity, and our ability to receive inspiration and let go of what is no longer useful. The energy of the Metal brings the inspiration of the heavens to every cell in our body and influences our skin and body hair. It is profoundly impacted by global high intensity trauma via the diaphragm system and the universal imprint of the breath on our tissues. The Metal Element signals both the close of the threat response and the creation of a fresh platform for initiating a new response should it become necessary. The social implications of restoring balance and regulation in the “Awaken Arousal” phase are significant. We may live in a state of whole-body constriction and constant arousal, unable to find a peaceful breath; we may be unable to “let go” of traumatic experiences and find a fresh breath. t gas terengganu We struggle to find respect for ourselves or others. This webinar will explore approaches to restore balance and regulation in the Awaken Arousal phase of the Self Protective Response, wake up our animal, instinctive nature, re-discover curiosity and wonder, and bring regulation to the movement of the breath through the tissues. It will elucidate body-informed clinical skills for somatic psychotherapists, acupuncturists, physical care, and medical providers. gas in back and stomach Additional member webinars are being scheduled.

“After years of using the SE Practitioner Directory to find other SE professionals, I wondered if it might be helpful to be listed myself. Since joining, it’s been delightful to connect with other members of the SE community who found my contact information there. Also, I’ve also been surprised with the number of new clients who found me in the Directory. Austin is a growing city, and the Directory is the first place newcomers look to find SE Practitioners.”

“I have been a member of the NY directory for 10 years. My listing has allowed professionals going through the SE training program to read my background, to see if we are a match to work together, and also read how I can fulfill their needs. This has helped them to reach out to me for private sessions, case consultations and SE reviews. gas in dogs symptoms And for clients who are searching for a trauma therapist they have found me on the website and called to book private sessions. So I have been very pleased to have my listing on the SETI website and will continue my membership in the years to come!”
