Founder - Dr. David Berceli

​​David Berceli is the energetic and creative founder and CEO of Trauma Recovery (Assessment and Prevention) Services (1988) and is an international expert in the areas of trauma intervention and conflict resolution. The goal of this organization is to provide specialized trauma recovery assistance to international and local organizations whose employees are living and working in an trauma-induced environment.  For the past 25 years he has lived in nine countries and worked in over 40 countries, providing trauma relief workshops and designing recovery programs for organizations around the world.


David brings a keen understanding of the interwoven dynamics that stress and trauma can have in cultural, religious and ethnic dimensions. Through this comprehensive understanding, he has developed specific processes to enable people to manage personal stress, anxiety and trauma,   as well as to bring healing and reconciliation between diverse groups and individuals. He is the creator of a revolutionary and unique set of Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) that release the deep chronic tension created in the body during stressful or traumatic experiences. He is also the author of the book "The Revolutionary Trauma Release Process: Transcend your toughest times."
​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 globally that trauma possesses unique possibilities of transformation in individuals if they pursue their recovery process to its ultimate end.
Along with individual trauma counselling, he has provided specialised trauma recovery assistance to US military personnel, national and international relief agencies, and government and non- government organisations whose staff are living and working in trauma-induced environments. 
​David is a Clinical Social Worker (PhD), Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), Certified Field Traumatologist (CFT), Certified Bioenergetics Therapist (CBT), and Spiritual Director (MS).
