A step by step process to identify the communication strategies necessary (and helpful) for successful SE sessions.

Twig’s Guide to the SE Language

Engaging, refined and still improving, this online course was created for SE Practitioner who want to know how to speak SE with all of their clients, not just the ones who already get it.

It is by far the best online class I have ever come across…”

Do you find yourself searching for the right words to say when facilitating SE style sessions? 

Does something like this happen to you often?

  • SEP: “What do you feel now?” 
  • Client: “I don’t know.” 
  • SEP Thinks: ‘What do I do now?’

This study guide was made to help you have more fluid engagement with your clients and explains why things get stalled and how to help them get going again. 

“Everything, and especially The tips and examples, were amazingly helpful.”

What is this “Guide to the SE Language”?

An online video study guide for students and practitioners using Somatic Experiencing® in their clinical work.

This is a succinct review of the ins and outs and observed best practices for successful communications between SE practitioners and their clients.

Each 5 to 15-minute “chapter” focuses on a different subject such as guiding clients who are highly attracted to the Red/Trauma Vortex or how to re-direct a client’s attention without infringing on their autonomy by asking questions rather than explicitly telling them what to do.

2 hours of examples offer over 200 quick demonstrations of different phrase combinations commonly used in SE sessions. There’s even associated commentary in the examples references the didactic material from the other videos. Some people have said it’s pretty amazing.  

In all this 7+hours of learning will radically affect all of your future work. If it doesn’t, then I’ve missed the mark and I’m going to apologize and try again. That won’t be necessary, if you’re working on becoming proficient and artful with SE, this will be exceedingly helpful to you. 

Special Development Period January-March, 2020

Over the first 3 months of 2020 I’ll be adding additional material to this project including material from the Practicing Our Lines series and regular (weekly) online group conversations to practice our lines, take on new ideas and develop/answer more questions.

By March 31st this is going to be a wonderfully complete program. In truth, it is that already. But it’s about to get Better still.

Spending money online is challenging. I want to make this an easy decision for you.
