As a professional, how do I make an appropriate referral?


When considering making a referral for your client, it is recommended to contact the SE Practitioner or training participant prior to making the referral. You may want to discuss your client or patient without divulging confidential information. It is important for you to feel comfortable with the treatment method that the Practitioner would employ. Often, SE® can be used in conjunction with other treatment. The Practitioner should be willing to answer any questions that you have.

How does SE differ from other therapeutic modalities?
  • SE employs awareness of body sensation to help people "renegotiate" and heal rather than re-live or re-enact trauma.

  • SE's guidance of the bodily "felt sense," allows the highly aroused survival energies to be safely experienced and gradually discharged.

  • SE "titrates" experience, rather than evoking catharsis - which can overwhelm the regulatory mechanisms of the organism.

  • SE helps eliminate pitfalls of re-traumatization and the spurious generation of "false memories".
What are the differences between the SE training levels?
