Creator of the Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE), David Berceli Ph.D. is an international expert in the areas of trauma intervention and conflict resolution. He is also the energetic and creative founder and CEO of Trauma Recovery Services (1998). Most importantly, he has developed the revolutionary and unique set of Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) that help release the deep chronic tension created in the body during a traumatic experience.
David has a Ph.D in Social Work and a Master of Theology. He is also certified in massage therapy and bio-energetic analysis, in addition to being a skilled psychotherapist. For the past 22 years he has lived and worked in nine countries, providing trauma relief workshops, TRE training and designing recovery programs for international organizations around the world. Dave has lived and worked extensively in Israel/Palestine, Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, Yemen, Egypt, and Lebanon. Fluent in English and Arabic, Dave brings a keen understanding of the intertwining dynamics of religion and ethnic customs, and has developed specific processes to enable people to manage personal trauma as well as bring healing and reconciliation between diverse groups. David continues to be involved in trauma recovery programs, not solely for the sake of reducing the suffering caused by trauma, but because he has recognized that, globally, trauma possesses unique possibilities of transformation in the individual if they pursue
their recovery process to its ultimate end.
While the healing of trauma has been David’s driving force, he recognizes that the TRE process is equally effective in the release of chronic tension that most of us absorb daily in our modern day living.
He now has TRE Practitioners Certification Programs in 10 countries.
