Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)
The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) was developed by Dr Stephen Porges and is a five-day auditory intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience.
The SSP is a research-based therapy showing significant results in just five days in the following areas:
- Social and emotional difficulties
- Auditory sensitivities
- Anxiety and trauma related challenges
- Stressors that impact social engagement
At Asheville Brain Training, we incorporate safe and sound protocol with neurofeedback.
SSP is a non-invasive intervention that involves listening to music that has been processed specifically to retune the nervous system (regulating state) to introduce a sense of safety and the ability to socially engage.
