001: The Importance of Spontaneity
In this first podcast I look at the issue of spontaneity and its critical importance in Somatic Experiencing sessions.
002: Continuous or Intermittent Tracking
Tracking felt-sense experience isn't a "one size" fits all kind of thing. It has nuances that require discretion, particularly for clients with higher degrees of accumulate stress.
003: Getting Through Freezy Sessions
How do you get through sessions with people experiencing "freezy business"? That is, as a practitioner what do you do with your attention to not succumb to the freeze or interrupt it unnecessarily. Here are some tips.
004: Return of Twig’s SE Reflections
After nearly 18 months away from these podcasts I'm excited to have my free attention back so I can resume this project. Here's a brief hit on why I've been away with a little insight hidden between the lines about the cost of a neuroception of impending doom - like from the fire that became The Carlton Complex this Summer, 2014.
005: Adjunctive Studies for the SE Practitioner seeking artfulness
SE could be called a lot of things but one of them should be an "amalgamated practice." There are so many creative threads running through the corpus of the SE tradition that we're indebted to other modalities as much as our own. And we can also learn from them in helpful ways to increase our artfulness within our chosen area of focus as SE Practitioners. Here's a review of some of the adjunctive studies that I found particularly helpful (there are far more besides).
006: Changing your unwanted intervention patterns 10 percent at a time
As we get better at Somatic Experiencing we're going to see a bunch of ways that we'd like to change what we do in our sessions. Here's one friendly pattern I use to change my own habits when I discover that I'm doing something that is unhelpful to the process. Funny, it's all about titration.
Wonderful Somatic Experiencing Podcast
I am going to have my SEP in October and I just came across this fabulous podcast. Just sorry to see it’s no longer happening.
Great stuff. Wow!!!!
