Many of our clients struggle to find and maintain the safety needed to face the risks and the wonder inherent in living.
The Polyvagal Theory has been termed the science of safety. This safety allows us to regulate our emotions, process our trauma memories, and engage with others successfully.
This work gives us a psychological and physiological understanding of our shifts through mobilization, disconnection, and engagement. Dr. Stephen Porges’ evidenced perspective shapes new approaches to trauma treatment, relational concerns, and mood disorders.
Dr. Debra Alvis will give you the science and theory in easy to understand language…and in an applied manner. End the training knowing how to map the autonomic response and how to repattern the autonomic nervous system for safety.
Experiential exercises and worksheets provided in the live webcast will guide you in the application of polyvagal knowledge to clinical work.
Watch Debra for this exciting day of theory, research, and application. A well-seasoned and national presenter, she brings an extensive background in neuroscience, the experience of a twenty-five-year clinical practice, and a love of whole-person treatment approaches to the training.
Enjoy anecdotes, take in clinical scenarios designed to clarify application principles, and practice interventions with Debra’s expert guidance. Return to your practice with:
