Objectives
  1. Describe the principles of Polyvagal Theory and how to communicate them in client friendly language.
  2. Explore three circuits of the autonomic nervous system for the purpose of client psychoeducation.
  3. Analyze how the autonomic nervous system operates as an internal surveillance system and its impact on clients’ habitual responses to trauma.
  4. Determine how to help clients engage the regulating capacities of the autonomic nervous system in order to create an environment of safety.
  5. Explain how to exercise the Social Engagement System to assist clients in becoming more adept in skills of co-regulation and creating reciprocal relationships.
  6. Assess for patterns in clients’ autonomic states to better inform treatment planning.
  7. Summarize the trauma-informed therapist’s role as co-regulator and its impact on clinical outcomes.
  8. Identify portals of intervention in the autonomic nervous system to more effectively establish safety and treat trauma.
  9. Discover the right degree of neural challenge and exercises to employ with clients to help shape the autonomic nervous system toward safety and connection.
  10. Examine how to work with the cycle or reciprocity-rupture-repair in helping clients achieve the biological need for connection.
  11. Design a Polyvagal-informed clinical practice based on appropriate assessment and treatment planning.
  12. Examine ethical issues, research limitations, and potential risks to be considered by a Polyvagal-informed therapist
Outline
ESSENTIALS OF POLYVAGAL THEORY
  • Evolution of the autonomic nervous system
  • How trauma influences autonomic profiles
  • Three organizing principles
    • Neuroception: Detection without perception
    • Hierarchy: 3 predictable pathways of response
    • Coregulation: The biological imperative
NEUROCEPTION AND THE SHAPING OF AUTONOMIC PATHWAYS
  • Understand the internal surveillance system
  • Track cues of safety and danger

  • Exploring three autonomic circuits
    • Sympathetic branch
    • Ventral vagal pathway
    • Dorsal vagal pathway
  • How trauma shapes cycles of autonomic response
  • Engage the regulating capacities of the autonomic nervous system
  • Introduction to autonomic mapping
THE SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT SYSTEM
  • The five elements of the Social Engagement System
  • What happens when parts of the system are unavailable?
  • Using the Social Engagement System to regulate states
  • Exercising the Social Engagement System
TRACKING AUTONOMIC STATES
