About the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)

Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, the SSP is a five-hour auditory intervention designed to empower clinicians to more efficiently and effectively help their clients reduce auditory sensitivity while enhancing autonomic regulation and social engagement.

The SSP employs a practical, bottom-up approach that can help shift the autonomic nervous system out of a state of defense, increasing social connection and, in turn, helping other therapies become more accessible and effective.
