The Polyvagal Guide to Relational Safety
With Deb Dana, LCSW
Recorded Friday 11 June 2021
The autonomic nervous system is at the heart of daily living, powerfully shaping our experiences of safety and influencing our capacity for connection. Porges’ Polyvagal Theory provides a guide to the autonomic circuits that underlie behaviours and beliefs. It gives us an understanding of the body-to brain neural highways that give birth to our personal stories of safety and survival.
In this workshop Deb Dana will offer a polyvagal roadmap for psychotherapists, exploring ways to listen with curiosity and compassion to emerging autonomic states and answer the essential question, “What does the nervous system need in this moment to find safety in connection?”READ MORE...
In the course of the seminar, Deb Dana will describe the autonomic hierarchy and a ‘personal profile’ map. We will learn how neuroception shapes behaviour and discuss how to use the co-regulating pathways of the social engagement system to send cues of safety to the client in therapy.
