Event description

Description

Integrating Polyvagal Theory into clinical practice begins with guiding your clients in creating personal maps of their autonomic nervous systems and tracking moment-to-moment movements along this hierarchy. By asking essential clinical questions, therapists help clients to feel, name, and interrupt habitual response behaviors driven by neuroception of threat. From this approach, therapists deepen their awareness and skills as a co-regulating resource for clients. Through guided neural exercises that bring the right amount of challenge, clients are able to reset their systems toward safety and connection.

Bring the power of Polyvagal Theory directly into your therapeutic sessions. Become fluent in the language of Polyvagal Theory and confident in your ability to help clients safely tune into their autonomic states, restore social engagement, and rewrite the trauma stories that are embedded in vagal pathways. Support clients to move out of their self-critical narratives of “who I am” into curiosity about “how I respond”.

Learn how to:

  • Integrate into practice the organizing principles of Polyvagal Theory

  • Use the experiential language of polyvagal-informed therapy

  • Create autonomic maps with clients which guide clinical interventions & daily life

  • Know your own & teach clients how to notice, name & track autonomic patterns

  • Access co-regulating pathways of the social engagement system

  • Engage autonomic portals of healing, including breath, movement, touch, & sound
