Online Training – Navigating the Nervous System: A Polyvagal Approach to Working with Complex Trauma
March 23 & 24, 2023, 12:00PM – 3:15PM (ET)
Online via Zoom with Deb Dana, LCSW
Join us for our upcoming 6.5-hour online training over two days led by Deb Dana, LCSW to better understand how to work with the autonomic nervous system in treating complex trauma utilizing Polyvagal Theory.
About the Workshop:
The autonomic nervous system is at the heart of daily living powerfully shaping our clients’ experiences of safety and influencing their capacity for connection. Polyvagal Theory, through the organizing principles of hierarchy, neuroception, and co-regulation, has revolutionized our understanding of how this system works. Guided by Polyvagal Theory, we have a deep appreciation of the ways trauma shapes the nervous system and of the pathways that lead to healing. Trauma interrupts the development of autonomic regulation and sidetracks building the circuitry of safe connection. Without intervention, adaptive survival responses become habitual autonomic patterns and pathways of connection are replaced with patterns of protection. With an updated map of the autonomic circuits that underlie behaviors and beliefs, we have a new understanding of the characteristic post-traumatic patterns of hyperarousal, hypervigilance, disconnection, and numbing and can reliably lead our clients out of adaptive survival responses into the autonomically regulated state of safety that is necessary for successful treatment.
Working with the autonomic nervous system brings the science of safety into practical application with ways to help clients identify and interrupt their habitual survival patterns and strategies to shape their systems toward connection. In this two-part series, participants will engage in experiential practices to develop an embodied understanding of the organizing principles of Polyvagal Theory and bring the principles alive in clinical work.
Target Audience: All health care professionals seeking to gain knowledge of and refine their skills in working with complex trauma.
