In this course, participants will learn about Polyvagal Theory from its author, Dr. Stephen W. Porges. Dr. Porges will dive into clinical applications of the theory to help you understand different psychiatric diagnoses (e.g., PTSD, autism, depression, and anxiety disorders). He will explain how neuroception, perception beyond conscious awareness, constantly scans the environment for cues of safety or threat which leads to a psychological response of calm and connected, mobilized and defensive, or immobilized and disassociated.
Another key component to understanding Polyvagal Theory is the Social Engagement System. Dr. Porges will break down this face-heart connection to show how bodily feelings are linked with facial expression, prosody, and other gestures. The Social Engagement System is integral on the path of healing and social connection and, without it being regulated, many behavioral and psychiatric disorders can present.
Polyvagal Theory has many implications in a clinical practice and in the daily lives of our clients. Dr. Porges will discuss common mental and physical health symptoms and how understanding Polyvgal Theory can help explain these comorbidities.
