SOSI was founded in 2008 to bring professionals from different backgrounds : psychology and psychiatry, neuroscience and medicine, pre- and perinatalogy, the somatic arts and spiritual traditions – to offer their insights into this crucial field of rediscovery.
SOSI offers educational programmes and workshops in the prevention and resolution of traumatic stress, the nemesis that underlies the majority of symptoms we express as individuals, families, societies and cultures. These programmes range from in-depth professional trainings of three years, which prepare healthcare providers to work in the field of PTSD, to short introductions and weekend workshops that are available to everybody.
SOSI understands that there is too much suffering in the world to place trauma prevention and resolution only in the hands of mental health professionals. Trauma is common to us all, and so is its resolution.. Each one of us is endowed with an inherent capacity to heal, irrespective of race, creed, socio-economic status, education or religious orientation. SOSI supports people to access this inherent gift and to teach it to their families, loved ones, associates and colleagues, empowering ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
SOSI believes that everyone should have an understanding of what drives our behaviour and why, and asimple, practical toolbox for moving through life’s most difficult moments. SOSI is committed to providing both. SOSI offers individuals an understanding of their symptoms, practical tools to resolve them, and key points for self-regulation. Sessions are both educational and therapeutic, leading to a reduction in symptoms and a return to a more profound sense of psychological, emotional and physical well-being. Specialised bodywork may be used to support the therapeutic process.
