"In this DVD, Peter Levine teaches and exemplifies a wise, experienced and kindly approach to working with trauma survivors. Several important and useful concepts are covered, including the creation of a safe space, the timing of attention to traumatic issues, the need to pay close attention to visible expressions of tension, confusion and, conversely, relaxation and understanding, as well as a sensitive assessment of the use of touch to promote healing. He clearly has a deep understanding of the impact of trauma in all its varieties, and possesses a mastery of techniques for treating this deserving population."

"This video provides an especially clear demonstration of Peter Levine’s highly effective approach to working with trauma. His sessions with Ray, an Iraq war veteran, show how Peter slowly and gently guides Ray towards the reduction of his symptoms and the recovery of self-regulation. In breakouts from the sessions, Peter explains the underlying physiology of trauma and how he treats it step by careful step, without re-traumatizing his client. These DVD’s of actual sessions are probably the most powerful, effective way to understand and appreciate Peter Levine’s finely attuned approach to working with the terrible tragedy of trauma."

"Levine masterfully works with the soldier using the somatic-experiencing technique that he developed during the last 40 years…Levine’s knowledge of trauma and how it affects the body is amazing, and he uses it with precision to bring out the trauma and heal the body and mind. It is a respectful and powerful approach…This two DVD set offers new tools and perspectives about trauma and healing. I recommend this DVD and I already have told several people about it."
- John D. Lentz, D.Min., reviewed in The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter
"This double DVD set contributes substantially to the field of psychotherapy and trauma work.The manual is well written and clearly articulates the main tenets of the theory, and the case study is an eye-opening example of the potential impact....I highly recommend this DVD for anyone with an interest in trauma-work and body work integrated into psychotherapy."
