Author: Peter Levine
Peter Levine is a well-known psychologist and expert in the field of trauma and stress. He has made significant contributions to the understanding and treatment of trauma through his work on Somatic Experiencing (SE), a therapeutic approach that focuses on the body's response to trauma. Through SE, Levine guides individuals in renegotiating and releasing the stored energy associated with traumatic experiences. This approach aims to restore balance to the nervous system and promote healing. By helping clients reconnect with their innate resources and allowing them to complete the natural fight-or-flight responses that were interrupted during traumatic events, Levine empowers individuals to move beyond the impact of trauma. Peter Levine has authored several influential books, including "Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma" and "In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness." These books have been widely read by both professionals in the field and individuals seeking to understand and overcome trauma.
