Course Overview

To register, please email us at explaining how you have satisfied the prerequisite: participants must be graduates of Jan's Treating Trauma and Addiction certificate course or be proficient in Gendlin's Focusing. In our small group setting we delve into the concepts with our bodies leading the way through felt sensing and connecting with our autonomic nervous system. During the monthly two hour zoom classes we start with an embodied practice, and a check in, giving people an opportunity to share in the joys, the struggles, and the explorations of this important work that we do. In the second hour a volunteer presents a case using the Embodied Assessment and Treatment Tool (EATT). We dig into concepts, expanding our capacity to think at the edge, and to bring our rich experiencing into sessions. As we co-create this safe and adventurous space, we keep learning how to be intelligently present with our clients. Focusing partnerships are encouraged and meet weekly or biweekly, forming the basis of our embodied interactions. People tell me that they feel connected, supported, and enriched in this thriving Felt Sense Polyvagal Community. From Jan: "This group is like a think tank/practice lab. It has helped me to formulate and shape ideas and practices that are part of my Routledge book. It is one of my favorite places to be." Students will have access to the course for 300 days from the date of purchase.


Up to 25 participants will meet monthly for two hours on Thursdays 12:00-2:00pm ET: May 4, 2023 (first Thursday) Jun 1, 2023 (first Thursday) Jul 6, 2023 (first Thursday) Aug 3, 2023 (first Thursday) Sep 7, 2023 (first Thursday) Oct 12, 2023 (second Thursday)

"In Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model Jan Winhall introduces a new strategy to treat addiction that brilliantly integrates Gendlin’s classic concept of a felt sense with Polyvagal Theory. The author shares her intellectual journey in which unique insights transform two disparate perspectives into obvious complements leading to a powerful treatment model." ―Stephen W. Porges, PhD, scientist, author, creator of Polyvagal Theory.
