Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP): 

      A Portal to Social Engagement      

Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, the SSP is a five-day sound-based intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience. By calming the physiological and emotional state, the door is opened for improved communication and more successful therapy.


It is designed to stimulate nervous system regulation by exercising and systematically challenging the auditory system with specifically processed music.  Understanding language and engaging with others requires a regulated and organized nervous system. 


The SSP is a research-based therapy showing significant results in the following areas:

  • Social and emotional difficulties

  • Auditory sensitivities

  • Anxiety and trauma related challenges

  • Stressors that impact social engagement

There are two things that can go wrong in childhood:

Things that happen that shouldn’t happen and things that should happen that don’t happen.
