Peter Levine Interview on Trauma Resolution

Peter Levine, PhD

Peter Levine, PhD

Peter A. Levine, PhD was recently interviewed on the “Dr. Shirley and Steve Show” discussing the use of Somatic Experiencing, the approach to trauma resolution he developed.  The podcast is down the page under podcast archives. See  Peter A. Levine, PhD 2/26/2014.  The podcast can be downloaded.

Trauma is in the body Levine says and trauma resolution works from the bottom up.  That is – the body centered approach bypasses the brain’s neo-cortex.

This hour interview covers the purpose of what he does and the range of issues he has worked with – a military combat veteran, fibromyalgia, turrets syndrome, tics, multiple personality, car accidents, and more.  He also recounts his thoughts as he worked through being hit by a car.
