This workshop is designed to educate practitioners working in the trauma spectrum on how to integrate the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) created by Dr. Stephen Porges as a preparatory and/or intervention tool for treating complex trauma, wounds of attachment, addictions, and other emotional and physical conditions related to Autonomic Dysregulation.
We will be discussing applications of the SSP for pediatrics, couples, individuals, and family systems. The SSP prepares the nervous system to respond to the ‘Essence of Safety’ (Neuroception). The SSP utilizes algorithms that progressively kindles the natural biological rhythms of homeostasis in the Nervous System.
The SEGAN MODEL further allows the client and therapist to develop a narrative that supports the essence of a felt sense-based intention that integrates the implicit memory, thereby guiding each individual in the co-creation of their own Mosaic of Healing.
When adopting the SEGAN MODEL (Sensation, Emotion, Gesture in colors, Action, and Narrative), the listening sessions are supported by artistic, creative activities and gestures that encourage expression, embodiment, coherence, and empowerment.
This model enlivens our awareness and understanding of life patterns. It correlates each hour of the SSP to a deeper relationship and organization of our conscious mind, or “I.” It supports the somatic “bottom-up” approach of creating the opportunity for subtle shifts in arousal, inviting imagination, inspiration and intuition, to strengthen our capacity to become present with ourselves and each other.
This process is a Healing Algorithm that accesses your creativity. By embodying the “Twelve Human Senses,” you will mobilize your personal and collective healing elements.
The SEGAN applies the principles of “Salutogenesis” by fostering coherence and promoting orientation towards empowerment and the awakening of one’s “Healing Pathway.”
We will be exploring the somatic, emotional, and creative elements of a journey that encompasses a trajectory that is similar to the crossing of a portal, the “Eye of the Needle.” By establishing an intention and allowing its natural unfolding (effortless), the client begins shifting.
Thus, the listening days are portrayed as an intentional and “Sacred Journey.”
You may implement this potent model in various settings, including therapy offices, schools, hospitals, residential facilities, outdoors, home, trauma centers, and community centers.
As a participant in this webinar, you will be able to create your own “Sensory Mosaic of Healing” and experience your life narrative in a new inspirational and transformational way. You will have the opportunity to compose your personal journey in a “fabric of poetry and art.” No previous experience with expressive arts is required in order for you to attend this webinar.
- Name and describe the SEGAN Model as it applies to the five listening hours of the Safe and Sound Protocol.
- Experience and learn how to develop your own Mandala by documenting and tracking the process with the “Felt Sense,” instead of using a verbal narrative.
- Participate and learn how to facilitate the “Color Gesture,” the algorithm of healing that defragments and supports the narrative of Self.
- Learn the movements that sustain the embodiment of each of the listening hours of the SSP – Eurythmy.
- Name and learn the Twelve Senses as it relates to your clients’ healing pathway.
