What to expect
SE Consultation is a required and enriching aspect of your SE training. It will allow time for you to ask personal questions as well as help you integrate SE work into your specific practice.
I am always willing to explore topics that would be most supportive of your learning. It is also fine if you have general conceptual questions about the SE curriculum.
I recommend you share a brief (and confidential) description of your client and his, her, or their background (around 5-10 minutes depending on the complexity of their history and presentation). If you have been through the intermediate training, think about what “categories” of trauma they might fit into.
I recommend you let me know what SE interventions you have tried and what the outcomes were. I may ask you to describe bodily sensations or other elements of SIBAM that you have been tracking while working with them.
Some question we might explore together:
What kinds of bodily sensations or other elements of SIBAM have you been tracking?
At baseline, where is your client’s nervous system?
Are they regulated, sympathetically charged, or shut down?
Do they exhibit fight, flight, and freeze in their bodies?
How do they describe their physiological state?
How you do perceive their physiological states in their bodies?
Have you been able to facilitate pendulation?
How have you used SE with them successfully?
Where and how do they continue to be disregulated?
Group Somatic Experiencing Consultations
My Somatic Experiencing consults are designed to be interactive. Participants may bring questions that are relevant to their trainings, their work with clients, and to establishing a successful private practice. The environment invites curiosity and daring. Feel free to ask what you have never dared to ask before! I am here to serve as a mentor as well as a liaison to Somatic Experiencing Institute.
Beginning Group Consultations are offered the 3rd Wednesday (5-8 pm) and Thursday (1-4 pm) of each month through August. Contact me to reserve your space. A minimum of six participants required for each consultation.
Wednesdays: April 25, May 16, June 20, July 28, August 15
Thursdays: April 26, May 17, June 21, July 29, August 16
Examples of goals that many SE students have are: creating a better clinical experience of SE, learning how to apply general SE concepts to specific cases, and the movement toward the “art” of the work so they feel natural using their SE tools with clients. Group consults give us the opportunity to learn from other cases, clients, and colleagues, broadening our knowledge of SE beyond our own experience.
I look forward to hearing from you.
As a matter of ethical standard, providers may not refuse service to participants on scholarship. To receive the appropriate scholarship rate, the participant must disclose their scholarship receipt. Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute can verify this information.
NOTE: Scheduling for Group Consults is subject to change. Should a schedule change be made after you have registered, you will be given the opportunity to change to another date or will be provided with a refund.
