Awareness: With the guidance of a trained SE therapist, you learn to pay attention to bodily sensations, emotions, and thoughts that arise during the therapeutic process.
Tracking Sensations: You explore sensations in your body associated with trauma or distress, noticing any changes, patterns, or areas of tension.
Pendulation: The therapist helps you move between focusing on sensations related to distress and those that provide a sense of safety or calm, creating a pendulum-like rhythm.
Titration: The therapist supports you in breaking down overwhelming experiences into smaller, manageable parts, allowing for gradual processing and integration.
Completion and Integration: Over time, the aim is to complete the incomplete physiological responses associated with the traumatic experience, leading to resolution and integration of the trauma.
