Engaging the Rhythm of Regulation: Foundations of Polyvagal Informed Practice Part I

Engaging the Rhythm of Regulation: Foundations of Polyvagal Informed Practice Part I

The autonomic nervous system is at the heart of daily living, powerfully shaping experiences of safety and influencing the capacity for connection. Through the organizing principles of hierarchy, neuroception, and co-regulation, Polyvagal Theory has revolutionized our understanding of how this system works. Guided by Polyvagal Theory, we have a new appreciation of the ways experience shapes the nervous system and of the pathways that lead to healing. With this updated map of the autonomic circuits of connection, mobilization, and collapse, we have practical ways to effectively help clients identify and interrupt patterns of protection and strategies to shape their systems toward the regulated state of safety and connection that is necessary for successful treatment.

For the first time ever, we join Stephen W. Porges, PhD, and Deb Dana, LCSW in a unique exploration of the scientific foundations of Polyvagal Theory alongside a nuanced and in-depth discussion of its clinical application. Presentation of theoretical constructs is combined with discussion and analysis in a way that truly combines the art of application with the science underlying the theory. The format of the course interweaves lectures with discussion and culminates in a clinical case study through a polyvagal lens. This has never been recorded before, and we think it will be popular with both professional and lay audiences!
