Have you had a client who could out-think their trauma? Likely you haven’t... because trauma isn’t healed through thought.
Clients come to us looking for ways to feel safe and regulated in their daily lives – but the trauma client is often stuck in a dysregulated state.
Like us, they want to be able to navigate the normal “shifting” we do in our daily life – transitioning from one state to another. Hyper to calm, irritated to relaxed, overwhelmed to feeling in control.
In the words of author of The Polyvagal Theory in Therapy (Norton) and international trainer Deb Dana, LCSW, they are “longing to come into a state of regulation”.
And it’s our job to help them. It’s what we trained for, what we dreamed of doing, and where we get the deep satisfaction from the work we do.
By attending this two-day applied training, Deb will give you:
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.
Each client is unique, each therapist unique, and each approach unique, but 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.
Increasingly, Polyvagal Theory is being discussed at conferences here and abroad, written about in articles, and taught in arenas of higher learning. Register for this training and revolutionize your practice. It is time to stop being mystified by the name “Polyvagal Theory” and realize the immediate benefits of knowing and incorporating its principles in your clinical work.
