Introduction to Polyvagal Theory in Clinical Practice


Friday, January 20, 2023 from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. (CST) / 5 p.m. till 8 p.m. (CET Paris time)

The autonomic nervous system is at the heart of daily living powerfully shaping experiences of safety and influencing the capacity for connection.


Polyvagal Theory provides a framework to understand the ways experience shapes the nervous system and the pathways that lead to healing.  This updated map of the autonomic circuits of connection, mobilization, and collapse offers therapists practical ways to effectively help their clients identify and interrupt their familiar response patterns.


Using a Polyvagal-informed approach, therapists can reliably lead their clients out of adaptive survival responses into the autonomically regulated state of safety that is necessary for successful treatment.




In this workshop participants will engage in experiential practices to develop an embodied understanding of the organizing principles of Polyvagal Theory and bring the principles alive in clinical work.
