About the Presenter:
Dea Parsanishi, Med, CCC, SEP
SE Trauma Institute faculty member, Dea Parsanishi, has been working with traumatized children, youth and adults for over 20 years. She lives in a small culturally diverse community on the west coast of Vancouver Island, where she practices SE® with a particular focus on early developmental trauma and attachment. Dea’s SE® practice has been profoundly affected by her work with local First Nations communities and healers, and by their natural and ancient relationship to the underlying principles of SE®. Their ability to heal within this container of culture and community reinforces her belief in SE® and the power of our innate, organic intelligence. Dea brings this awareness of culture, family, human development and attachment to her teaching, bridging theory to practice.
