How can the body and its natural processes be tools for treating trauma?
The Polyvagal Theory helps us answer this question by explaining how people process their environment and how the body regulates itself in the face of stress and trauma.
Watch the video below as Stephen Porges, PhD, creator of the Polyvagal Theory, shares one way to apply the Polyvagal Theory when working with the body’s responses to traumatic triggers and stressful events.
In the webinar this week, Dr. Porges and I will be talking about the Polyvagal Theory and how it’s revolutionizing the way we view and treat trauma.
Here’s a look at what we’ll be discussing:
- How to use heart rate variability as a portal to self-regulation
