Somatic Experiencing therapy for war trauma in veterans

Watch Dr. Peter Levine work with a US military veteran to help him resolve PTSD and physical combat trauma.

This video tells the compassionate story of the healing process of Ray, a marine who had been injured by two explosive devices (IEDs) and diagnosed with both severe PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). He was brought to see Peter A. Levine, the creator of Somatic Experiencing Therapy (SE™) after developing chronic pain, Tourette-like convulsions, cognitive problems and insomnia due to night terrors. In a series of documented Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) sessions, including Ray’s family, Peter demonstrates the power of SE as a tool to heal the wounds of war.

Peter A. Levine, PhD, Founder & Developer of Somatic Experiencing holds doctorates in both medical biophysics and psychology. He is the author of six books on the subjects of trauma and PTSD, including the bestseller, Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma, which has been published in twenty-four languages. Dr. Levine has been a member of World Psychologists for Social Responsibility, responding to large-scale disasters and ethno-political warfare, and served as a stress consultant for NASA in developing the astronaut training program.
