Trauma is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood and untreated cause of human suffering.

If you are interested in the three-year Somatic Experiencing Professional Training, you must have attended a two-day SE Introduction Workshop first. However, participation in the Introduction Workshop does not require a commitment to the longer training. You can simply participate in the Workshop to better understand people who have experienced trauma.
