Yes - these practices can be applied to other forms of trauma. Somatic mind-body practices foster deeper awareness of self within ones environment, and therefore are particularly beneficial to refugees and soldiers who are forced out of their homes and into unfamiliar territory. But somatic practices address the physical manifestations of any trauma, and yield benefits on physical and emotional levels. A goal of this research to develop a model for assessing the effects that somatic work can have in any contexts. Thank you for your question!
