Meet Peter A. Levine, PhD

I'm Peter Levine, and I've been working in the field of trauma and stress & trauma for nearly 40 years. I have been particularly drawn to the innate capacity that all human beings have to rebound from trauma, and to come back into life. I'm especially devoted to helping people learn tools that they can use to help themselves, and to help their children. I like to play. I love to take walks on the beach or go skiing. Or meet interesting people. I like to read books. I like to snuggle and haggle. I like life.
