Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)
The Safe and Sound Protocol, developed by Dr. Porges, is a five-day intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing capacity for social engagement and emotional resilience. It is an auditory intervention (distinct from auditory integration training) where the person wears headphones that play specially formulated music for up to one hour on five consecutive days. It can be done in the office of a trained clinician (e.g. occupational therapist) or in the comfort of the person's home.
