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 among 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 will allow 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 to create 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 and creative activities and gestures that encourage expression, embodiment, coherence, and empowerment.
This model applies the integration of our life patterns. It correlates each hour of the SSP to a deeper relationship and organization of the “I.” It supports the somatic “bottom-up” approach of creating the opportunity for the arousal shift, inviting intuition, imagination, curiosity, and connection to the “here and now.” This inspirational process is a dynamic rhythmical healing co-creation that is accessed by one’s capacity to “Feel and Be in the present moment.” By embracing the 12 Human Senses, one will have a direct experience with the inner Self; therefore, able to mobilize forces of healing. It applies the principles of Salutogenesis by fostering coherence and promoting orientation, therefore creating empowerment towards the awakening of one’s own healing forces.
We will be exploring the somatic, emotional, and creative elements of a journey that encompasses a trajectory that is similar to the crossing of the “Eye of the Needle.” By establishing an intention and allowing its natural unfolding (effortless), the client begins the process. Thus, the listening days are portrayed as a “Sacred Journey.”
You may implement this simple yet potent model in various settings, including therapy offices, hospitals, residential facilities, outdoors, home, trauma centers, and community.
As a participant in this webinar, you will be able to create your own “Mosaic of Healing” and experience your life narrative in a new inspirational, and transformational way. During this webinar, 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.
A listening cohort of the SSP listening hours following the SEGAN Model will be offered during the month of October. Webinar participants that are interested in experiencing this process themselves will be invited to register. Costs and dates will be discussed during the course.
