Description

At its most basic level, human communication is one nervous system responding to another, searching for signals that it’s safe to connect and flooding us with distress responses when it’s not. Polyvagal Theory has revolutionized our understanding of the complex, unconscious forces at play in our therapeutic interactions, offering a road map to help us navigate and engage this deeply embodied system. In this recording, you’ll learn how to use the five pathways of the Social Engagement System to regulate your own states and enter into fuller autonomic attunement with your clients.
