SE Today and Tomorrow: A Special Report on Our Organization

What’s Next? In 2021, we’re focused on undertaking a new fundraising initiative for long-term sustainability of the Institute. We’re modernizing and upgrading our SE curriculum, creating new workgroups to support inclusive and collaborative governance, developing several white papers on updating standards, compliance, and ethics, and expanding faculty advancement opportunities in North America and around the world. We’re also changing our name—to Somatic Experiencing Internationa l—and will have a new logo and brand identity. We’ll celebrate these milestones and moments—and more—in the years ahead. As a community of people dedicated to changing lives, we know that we are doing that, one life at a time. Change isn’t coming—it’s happening. Change through the steps of transition at the Institute is also happening now. We look forward to all of you being on this continuing journey with us.
