What is SOMA-Embodiment?
Conceived and developed by Sonia Gomes, PhD, SOMA-Embodiment offers diagnostic skills, touch and movement tools, and haptic awakening to transform emotional, developmental and shock trauma.
The SOMA-Embodiment training program re-envisioned from its predecessor SOMA, includes technical aspects of the Structural Integration and Movement of Dr. Ida Rolf and Tonic Function and movement analysis from Hubert Godard. Soma-Embodiment is infused with psycho-physiologic understanding of trauma from Dr. Peter A. Levine, supported by the Polyvagal Theory of Dr. Stephen Porges and the contributions from Ecological Psychology as set forth by Dr. James Gibson. The work of Henri Wallon, Donald Winnicott and André Bullinger also shape the program.
Students of SE®, SE Practitioners or professionals who work with Trauma are welcome in this program.
