Peter Levine, Ph.D. is a former NASA space shuttle stress consultant and founder of Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute (SETI) recognized for revolutionizing stress and trauma therapy. Though he is probably most well-known for his bestselling book Waking the Tiger, Dr. Levine’s life work culminates in his latest title, In An Unspoken Voice. This groundbreaking book explores the idea that trauma is neither a disease nor a disorder, but rather an injury caused by fright, helplessness, and loss that can be healed by engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions.
A featured guest on a number of television and broadcast radio shows, you now can listen to Dr. Levine in theÂ New Trauma Treatment Series from The National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine. This series offers a 6-part teleseminar series “that takes trauma treatment to the next level.”
From the Institute’s website:
“So what exactly are the most effective skills and applications for treating trauma? To help us find answers to these questions, we went to the experts. That’s the inspiration behind this new teleseminar series.”
Here’s a look at the agenda:
- Brain Science: Balancing Instinct and Reason for Trauma Resolution
- Why Direct Confrontation Isn’t the Answer for Trauma Treatments
- A Somatic Experiencing Program for Healing Trauma
- Why Behaviors and Memories Can’t be Changed by Thought Alone
- How to Build Stress Resilience in Children

Enriched with a coherent theoretical framework and compelling case examples, In An Unspoken Voice elegantly blends the latest findings in biology, neuroscience and body-oriented psychotherapy to show that when we bring together animal instinct and reason, we can become more whole human beings.
