What is Trauma?

Trauma refers to a distressing or harmful experience that an individual has endured, which can have profound negative effects on their psychological and emotional health. Traumatic events can take various forms, including:

  1. Single events: Such as a car accident, a medical procedure, a violent assault, or a natural disaster.
  2. Long-term stressors: These may involve repeated physical or emotional abuse, sexual assault, neglect, or prolonged threats such as domestic violence or war.

Traumatic experiences can lead to a variety of symptoms that may impair the individual's daily functioning, including:

  • Emotional symptoms: Intense fear, depression, guilt, anger, or emotional numbness.
  • Behavioral symptoms: Withdrawal from others, increased alcohol or drug use, self-harming behaviors, or aggression.
  • Physical symptoms: Sleep disturbances, difficulty concentrating, increased irritability, physical complaints without discernible medical cause.

It is important to emphasize that trauma is an individual experience, and not all individuals who experience similar events will exhibit the same reactions or symptoms. The effects of trauma can also vary over time, with some individuals developing traumatic symptoms years after the event.

What is Somatic Experiencing?

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a form of trauma therapy developed by Dr. Peter Levine. SE focuses on how traumatic experiences affect the body and how these effects can be alleviated through focused attention and regulation.


According to the Somatic Experiencing theory, trauma arises when the body is unable to process traumatic experiences due to a disruption in its natural regulatory mechanisms. When an individual is exposed to a traumatic event, the body may enter a state of hyper-arousal or immobilization. This can lead to a blockade of the body's natural healing process, where the physiological remnants of trauma are held in the body, resulting in symptoms such as hyper-arousal, hypo-arousal, or dissociation.


Through restoring a sense of safety in the body and gradually exploring and discharging stored physiological energy, Somatic Experiencing therapy aims to release these blockades and restore the body's natural regulation of the nervous system, thus alleviating traumatic symptoms.
