Engaging the Rhythm of Regulation: Foundations of Polyvagal Informed Practice Part I
About the course
This will be the short description field. Enter a sentence or two about the course.
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.
