Trauma clients are often stuck in a dysregulated state—and in the words of author and international trainer Deb Dana, LCSW—they “long to come into a state of regulation”.
But how do we help them navigate the normal “shifting” from one state to another— hyper to calm, irritated to relaxed, overwhelmed to feeling in control—when each client is unique, each therapist is unique, and each approach is unique?
Using the foundation of our autonomic nervous system and working with states of engagement and dysregulation are universal ingredients for clinical success to happen. Learning Polyvagal Theory and how to apply it in your practice may become one of the most transformational moments in your career.
This training will be led by Courtney Rolfe, MA, LCPC on behalf of Deb Dana, LCSW. Courtney is one of a select group of senior trainers who are part of Deb Dana’s training team for the 6-month clinical training course: Foundations of Polyvagal-Informed Practice.
This one-day training incorporates core elements from Deb’s groundbreaking framework and unique methodology. You will learn how to effectively utilize Deb’s original tools and techniques in your client sessions. All workshop content and material is copyright by Deb Dana LCSW & Rhythm of Regulation™, are incorporated in this PESI training with permission from Deb Dana, LCSW. Attend and you will learn:
The Polyvagal approach is not a model of therapy or a protocol to follow. It is an understanding of three organizing principles around which you can create your own approach and technique, blending them with your preferred model.
The goal is that you leave the training inspired to try something new with a client— and that you have a roadmap to do so effectively.
