I was one of eight TRE providers who volunteered to join Dr. Berceli in Manheim, Pennsylvania, for an event organized specifically for veterans. I enjoy being present any time Dr. Berceli teaches, even if it is just for two hours, like this event was. There’s always something to learn.
Two videos. In one, an impala emerges from the freeze response and tremors. In the other Dr. David Berceli describes different types of tremors: physiological, psychological, and neurological.
Leckey and Petra were torn between pursuing training in Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing and Berceli’s Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises. They attended introductory workshops in both. Petra asked Dr. Berceli how he would describe the difference between the work of Levine and his own, and he said “I’ve had to teach TRE during a five-hour cease fire.” That was the moment she knew that TRE was perfect for what she and Leckey were trying to do.
