Courses: Introduction to Polyvagal Theory: Basics Of Practice


Course Details:
The learner will gain an understanding of the organizing principles of Polyvagal Theory and apply these principles to understanding how the autonomic nervous system impacts the therapeutic relationship and the clinical process. We will explore how to map autonomic states and state shifts, how to work with autonomic cues of danger, and experiment with co- and self-regulating interventions to increase the capacity for maintaining a ventral vagal state.

This introductory course is appropriate for clinicians in all areas of the helping professions. The teaching modalities include didactic materials, dyadic experiential exercises, and role plays.
