The Polyvagal Theory: A revolutionary advance in understanding and treating anxiety and trauma related symptoms.
The past twenty years have seen a surge of innovative therapeutic approaches in the treatment of trauma and trauma related anxiety. Clinicians are aware that anxious and traumatized clients are often in either an over aroused or under aroused physical state. The Polyvagal theory proposed by Dr. Stephen Porges, brings a striking new level of understanding to the nervous system’s response to trauma and with it, new ways to clinically address it. The workshop will teach the basics of the Polyvagal theory. There will be small group exercises to help introduce it into clinical practice.
