Our Safe and Sound Protocol by Stephen Porges

From the movie, The Wisdom of Trauma featuring Dr. Gabor Maté and Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is an intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience. Several studies have shown the efficacy of the SSP in healing from trauma. The SSP calms physiological and emotional states and allows for improved communication. This program can be repeated every six weeks.


We now offer remotely one year rentals for $375. The fee includes a phone call with our certified SSP practitioner.

This protocol is intended for children or adults affected by trauma or developmental disorders, including autism, who experience difficulties with social engagement, auditory processing, hyper-arousal, and emotional regulation.  It is used to reduce defensiveness and accelerate the therapeutic process. It can be used at home or in the clinic, by anyone who could use calming of the parasympathetic system.  SSP is an enjoyable and beneficial experience.
