The first TRE Level 1 in Ireland went very well. People were fired up by the experience  of the tremors and many of the attendees are keen to go through the accreditation process. Hopefully that means that over the next year there should be more TRE available in Ireland. At the moment Raymond Lambert, centre of the image above in a white shirt, is a qualified Level 1 TRE  Trainer based in Dublin (raymondlambert@eircom.net). I will be running another TRE group on Thursday May 3rd 2012 from 19.00 to 21.00 at Marino Conference Centre, Griffith Ave, Dublin 9. Cost 20 euro, please email Steve Haines (steve.haines@mac.com) to confirm attendance

Surviving Trauma Can Make You Stronger

  ‘Ginsberg (1974) immobilized chicks, and then allowed one group to recover spontaneously, and one to recover, but with prodding and stimuli to terminate the freeze. These groups, along with a third group of chicks that had not been immobilized, were then tested for resiliency to avoid death by drowning. The group that had not been allowed to complete recovery from immobility died first, the group not exposed to immobility next, and the group that had spontaneously recovered from the freeze survived the longest. Clearly the experience of and the spontaneous recovery from freezing carries survival benefits, whereas not being allowed to go through this recovery process seemed to reduce...

Studying with David Berceli in Oslo

Posted on20 Mar 2011

Just arrived home from three days with David Berceli in Oslo. I learnt loads. A quick list of some of  highlights I can remember right now: Stay focused on self regulation. Stay with the body. ‘Where is it in the body?’. The tremors reveal existing issues they do not create new ones. When people come out of freeze it is inevitable to feel things. It is healthy. We need to do more TRE to then help the charge of the fight and flight responses resolve. As a therapist, can you stay present in the face of huge charge and intensity emerging in the client? Presence is the most important skill to...
