Backed by two peer-reviewed studies published by Dr. Stephen Porges, the Safe and Sound Protocol or SSP is a five-hour (over five days) auditory intervention which increases the feeling of safety allowing improved regulation, behavior, and engagement with the world.
The SSP re-tunes the nervous system to bring about a sense of emotional safety, which opens the door to self-confidence, social interaction, and successful learning.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Children or adults affected by anxiety, trauma or developmental disorders, including autism, who experience difficulties with social engagement, auditory processing, hyper-arousal, and emotional regulation.
HOW IS IT USED?
The SSP can be used to reduce defensiveness, making the client more open to other therapies, and even accelerate the therapeutic process. It is a valuable addition to current therapies being undertaken.
WHERE IS IT DELIVERED?
As the delivery environment is important to the success of the intervention, the SSP is delivered in the purpose-built, sensory calming environment of The Sacred Nest. Efforts to maintain a calm environment in the home during the 5 day intervention is also important, which will be discussed in the intake process.
Alternatively, remote delivery in your own home can be arranged during times when access to the studio is not possible due to government restrictions or if this is what you prefer. We can work with you to design a program that meets your needs.
