3 Clinical CEUs

The Polyvagal Theory (PVT), developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, proposes that the Autonomic Nervous System influences the way we think about the world and shapes our experiences by responding to moments of connection and protection. The PVT supports that we are innately driven towards feelings of safety and our need to connect and feel safe with others. The PVT provides a road map for clinicians to assist clients in becoming aware of their own nervous systems and creates opportunities for self compassion and healing. The PVT expands on our understanding of protective responses for those with trauma histories.  In addition, when we understand how our own nervous systems work, we then understand the importance of creating enough cues of safety and connection when working with our clients. 

 Learning Objectives:

Understand the two branches of the Autonomic Nervous System and the 3 Pathways of response 

Learn the 3 organizing principles of the Polyvagal Theory:  Neuroception, Co-Regulation, Hierarchy of  Response

Learn ways to identify Autonomic States and skills to offer your clients to regulate back to a sense of safety

Learn how to bring into your sessions enough cues of safety when working with clients that tend to dysregulate, especially those with trauma histories.
