Peter A. Levine, PhD, is a best-selling author, scientist, researcher and clinician. Dr. Levine has been called one of the world’s preeminent experts on resolving trauma — or more specifically the symptoms of trauma such as PTSD, flashbacks, anxiety and other conditions. He has spent close to half a century understanding the human body and its response to what he calls “accumulated stress” and “unresolved trauma.” The creator of what he calls the “Somatic Experiencing” approach to resolving trauma, in 1984 Dr. Levine founded SETI, the Somatic Experiencing Training Institute, an organization that has trained over 25,000 practitioners and therapists worldwide in his approach to healing trauma. He is the author of 11 books including the best-selling Waking the Tiger, In an Unspoken Voice, and Trauma and Memory. For the past six years Dr. Levine has been pioneering a new method for resolving fibromyalgia and related conditions. In 2012 Dr Levine cowrote a book with one of his students, Maggie Phillips, titled Freedom from Pain: Discover Your Body’s Power to Overcome Physical Pain. This book captures Dr. Levine’s approach to helping people with conditions like fibromyalgia.
