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). While the SSP utilizes music that progressively kindles the natural biological rhythms of homeostasis in the Autonomic Nervous, the SEGAN MODEL will allow for the therapist and client to develop a narrative to support the intention and
meaning of the intervention.
When adopting the SEGAN MODEL (Sensation, Emotion, Gesture in colors, Action, and Narrative), the listening sessions are supported by activities that encourage expression, embodiment, coherence, and empowerment. This model supports the integration of our life patterns as we embrace our intuition and imagination. This inspiring “portal” becomes then a dynamic healing process.
We will be exploring the somatic, emotional, and creative forces of a journey that encompasses the threading of the “Eye of a Needle.” By establishing an intention, the client sets the stage for the process. The listening days are portrayed as Seeking Sensation (day one), Awareness of Emotion (day two), Embracing the Gesture (day three), Awakening the Action (day four), and Envisioning a Narrative (day five) – SEGAN.
This is a simple yet potent model that may be implemented in various settings, including therapy offices, hospitals, residential facilities, outdoors, home, 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 inspired and transformational way. You will have the opportunity to compose your personal journey in a “fabric of poetry and art”.
