What is Trauma and Somatics?

TOGETHER WE'RE CREATING A TRAUMA-INFORMED WORLD.

Be part of the global movement to create a healthier, happier world.
Trauma and Somatics is a live, in-depth professional training program designed specifically for helping professionals and caring individuals to deepen their awareness of trauma physiology and build the skills necessary for their work with clients who have a history of trauma.

This unique program provides a solid foundation to support your clients through stressful periods of their lives using the simple and often overlooked wisdom inherent in each of us – the wisdom of the body.

In a world that needs your expertise, there’s never been a better time to become Trauma-Informed. By moving beyond "Trauma Aware" to "Trauma-Informed,” you create a safer transformational experience for your clients. Now, more than ever before, people are seeking trauma-informed specialists to guide them.

As coaches, healers, and facilitators, the question we must ask is: How can we minimize the potential dangers of personal development while leveraging its maximum benefits? If you are passionate about helping your clients cultivate inner strength and resilience so that they can meet whatever life brings their way, Trauma and Somatics is for you.

"Somatic Awarenesses is at the cutting edge… and represents a way to truly empower individuals in their efforts to maintain or restore good health. Somatic awareness constitutes an innate wisdom that people have about their own psychobiological health… Somatic awareness represents the next state of evolution of holistic care.”

Donald Bakal

Training Overview


Trauma and Somatics is a 35-hour certificate training which includes: 10 live training classes (three hours each) over 12-weeks (Wednesday’s from 3-6pm ET), 6 self-study modules of training materials (audio lectures, PDFs, meditations), and a private virtual community space for additional learning and support

MODULE 1
Intro to Trauma + Somatics

In this module, you will learn the foundations for approaching your work through a trauma-informed lens, including the basics of somatic integration, somato-emotional attunement, and the importance of the felt-sense experience.

MODULE 2
The Neuroscience of Stress

Building on module 1, you will learn the neuroscience of stress physiology, including an introduction to Polyvagal Theory, which will help you understand and work with your client’s implicit memory and somatic experience.

MODULE 3
Tools of a Trauma-Informed Coach

With a solid foundation laid, you’ll now learn the ‘tools of the trade’ as a somatic-based trauma-informed practitioner, including nervous system tracking, dual awareness, attachment dynamics, boundary repair, and more.

MODULE 4
Regulation & Resilience

Regulation and resilience lie at the heart of nervous system health, as well as mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. In this module you will learn resourcing practices and regulation techniques to use with your clients to support them in cultivating inner strength and resilience.

MODULE 5
Setting Containers + Team Building

Knowing how to hold strong containers is essential to the felt-sense of safety your clients expect from you. The same is true for knowing how to help your client build the team necessary to support their growth and development.

MODULE 6
Your Nervous System Health

As a helping professional, your wellbeing is the foundation of your work with clients. Learn how to track and support your own nervous system health to avoid burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma.

"Trauma is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering... Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside in the absence of an empathetic witness.”

Dr. Peter Levine
