Focus Unit: Photic and Audio Therapy™

Levine Trauma Protocol™

Peter A Levine, Pd.D.




Online February 20th, 11 AM – 4 PM MST (lunch 1 PM – 2 PM)

 

Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) is a naturalistic and neurobiological approach to healing trauma and other stress-related disorders. During this new workshop, Peter A Levine, Ph.D., trauma expert and the developer of Somatic Experiencing, will demonstrate ways to work with trauma, combining Focus Unit: Photic and Audio Therapy™ with SE’s basic principles.

 

Trauma may begin as acute stress from a perceived life-threat or as the end product of cumulative stress. Both can seriously impair a person’s ability to function with resilience and ease and live in the here-and-now.

 

  • Trauma may result from a wide variety of stressors such as accidents, invasive medical procedures, assaults, emotional and physical abuse, neglect, oppression, natural disasters, or the corrosive stressors of ongoing fear, conflict, and chronic shaming.
  • Stress and trauma of all intensities can include a spectrum of lingering symptoms such as hypervigilance, anxiety, depression, addiction, irritability, violence, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, IBS and poor digestion, insomnia, migraines.

 

Although trauma responses can protect us in times of need, they can also linger and harm our loved ones and us.

  • Interfering with the normal function of our nervous system, disrupting a healthy Vagal tone.
  • Adversely altering our epigenetic transmission that passes onto the next generation, like our ancestors’ trauma responses may have passed along.

 

Somatic Experiencing is a body-based  approach to dealing with the problematic emotional and physical symptoms of trauma. It helps individuals create new experiences in their bodies, which contradict those of tension and overwhelming helplessness. Healing is not about reliving memories or trying to change our thoughts and beliefs, but first it is about exploring the sensations that lie underneath our feelings and beliefs, as well as our habitual behavior patterns. SE offers a framework to assess where someone may be “stuck” in the fight, flight, or freeze (or collapse) protective response and provides practical tools to resolve these fixated psycho-physiological triggers to create a more regulated and authentic state of being. 

 

Focus Unit: Photic and Audio Therapy™
The Focus System improves brain function by implementing the iLs method: Brain and Body Integration through Multisensory Input.

 

  • The Focus System is a clinical-level intervention designed for home use, consisting of therapeutically-treated music combined with fun movement activities and, when ready, cognitive challenges to further activate brain networks.

 

  • The program provides simultaneous multisensory input to help develop new and reinforce existing pathways governing organization of the body and brain function.

 

  • Therapeutic music is delivered via iLs’ air and bone conduction headphones, providing auditory input to the brain and sensory input to the body.

 

  • Movement activities, customizable for all levels, provide additional sensory and motor input for body organization.

 

  • Cognitive activities, added later, challenge the brain to process multiple pieces of simultaneous information, which is reflective of demands required of the brain in our day-to-day world.
