Somatic Experiencing is a psycho-somatic method for resolving trauma. The method has been developed by Dr. Peter Levine. He published his vision on the healing of trauma in his book ’Waking the tiger’ and many other publications.
Somatic Experiencing was based on Levine’s observations of wild animals. Animals are often threatened to be killed. Nevertheless they rarely get traumatized. They know by instinct how to release the immense amount of energy that is instigated by their behavior of survival.
NARM (Neuro-Affective Relational Model) is a new cutting-edge approach developed by Dr. Larry Heller. NARM takes the principles of SE and its new way of working with the nervous system into the field of developmental (childhood) trauma. In NARM, we address the often life-long effects of childhood wounding and examine the resulting harmful emotions and beliefs about ourselves in a gentle and respectful, but very powerful way.
In this 4-day training, Marianne Bentzen will blend NeuroAffective theory, guided meditations, movement and group process.
