As many of you know, I have been training in Somatic Experiencing® (SE), a body-centered healing modality, and am on track to complete the three year training this October. I am thrilled to announce that the first randomized controlled study evaluating the effectiveness of somatic experiencing (SE) in treating PTSD has been published.
The results clearly showed SE to be effective in treating both PTSD as well as depression, despite the fact that the study was conducted in Israel during a period ongoing collective trauma due to political unrest, which included two wars (2012 and 2014) and ongoing terrorist attacks.
The article was published in the prestigious Journal of Traumatic Stress, and is worth the read if you are interested in learning more about SE. Access it here.
