Description

  • Are the trauma, attachment and self-regulation interventions you use based on an outdated understanding of the neurophysiology?
  • Is your treatment model rooted in an understanding of client arousal based on traditional maeasures without incorporating concepts from the Polyvagal Theory?
  • During therapy sessions, are you aware that you and your client are responding to each other’s physiological state?
  • Are your interactions with your clients missing an understanding of how mental processes influence physiology and how physiology influences cognitive, emotional, and social behavior?

If you aren’t consciously monitoring your client’s facial features and vocal intonation, you could be missing important cues of the social engagement system and therapeutic opportunities.

Dr. Stephen Porges is an recognized professional on the neurophysiology of emotions, trauma, attachment and self regulation. He will show you how you can put this understanding to use when implementing interventions for mediating symptoms of many mental health disorders including autism, depression, ADD and PTSD. In addition, learn strategies to trigger states of safety in your clients by activating the “highest level” mechanism.

Stephen Porges Related seminars and products: 14

Ph.D., Professor

Department of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill


Stephen W. Porges, PhD, is Distinguished University Scientist at Indiana University, where he is the founding director of the Traumatic Stress Research Consortium within the Kinsey Institute.  He holds the position of Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina and Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Maryland. 

Dr. Porges served as president of both the Society for Psychophysiological Research and the Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences and is a former recipient of a National Institute of Mental Health Research Scientist Development Award.  He has published more than 300 peer reviewed scientific papers across several disciplines including anesthesiology, biomedical engineering, critical care medicine, ergonomics, exercise physiology, gerontology, neurology, neuroscience, obstetrics, pediatrics, psychiatry, psychology, psychometrics, space medicine, and substance abuse.

In 1994 Dr. Porges proposed the Polyvagal Theory, a theory that links the evolution of the mammalian autonomic nervous system to social behavior and emphasizes the importance of physiological state in the expression of behavioral problems and psychiatric disorders. The theory is leading to innovative treatments based on insights into the mechanisms mediating symptoms observed in several behavioral, psychiatric, and physical disorders.

He is the author of The Polyvagal Theory: Neurophysiological foundations of Emotions, Attachment, Communication, and Self-regulation (Norton, 2011), The Pocket Guide to the Polyvagal Theory: The Transformative Power of Feeling Safe (Norton, 2017) and co-editor of Clinical Applications of the Polyvagal Theory: The Emergence of Polyvagal-Informed Therapies (Norton, 2018).

Dr. Porges is also the creator of a music-based intervention, the Safe and Sound Protocol™, which currently is used by more than 1000 therapists to improve spontaneous social engagement, to reduce hearing sensitivities, and to improve language processing, state regulation, and spontaneous social engagement.

Objectives

  1. Articulate the foundation of Polyvagal Theory as it relates to clinical treatment.
  2. Communicate how the Polyvagal Theory may demystify several features related to psychiatric disorders and behavioral problems in clients.
  3. Evaluate how deficits in the regulation of the “Social Engagement System” are expressed as core features of several psychiatric disorders as it relates to case conceptualization.
  4. Reconstruct how the neural process, neuroception, evaluates risk in the environment and triggers adaptive neural circuits, which promote either social interactions or defensive behaviors in clients.
  5. Characterize how therapeutic presence is based on the interaction between the “Social Engagement Systems” of client and therapist.
  6. Analyze the efficacy the “Social Engagement System” in optimizing therapeutic outcome in clients.
  7. Breakdown the features of the “Social Engagement System” as it relates to clinical practice.
