Information about the event:

The Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™ (FSPM) shifts the current pathologizing paradigm to a strength-based approach. Through the lens of Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal theory, addiction is seen as an adaptive stress response in our autonomic nervous system. Addictive behaviors are the bodies attempt to emotionally regulate by acting as propellers that facilitate neurophysiological shifts in our nervous system. The model integrates Porges’ Polyvagal theory and Gendlin’s Felt Sense Focusing Oriented Psychotherapy enabling us to appreciate trauma/addictive behaviors as adaptive responses in maladaptive environments. The FSPM provides a generic framework that can support any therapeutic modality. This 6 hour webinar will present an introduction to my book Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model. I will give a detailed description of the integrative theoretical framework of the model as I developed it over four decades in working with trauma survivors. Application of the model will be demonstrated in an introduction to The Embodied Assessment and Treatment Tool.™ (EATT)™

The EATT™ provides a somatic assessment of client’s capacity to regulate their autonomic nervous system, and integrate embodied experiences. As you develop the experiential assessment over time it becomes an organized treatment plan and can be stored online as a clinical record. The EATT™ package is downloadable on my website. Detailed examples of how to use the Tool will be demonstrated. Carnes Three Circle Practice, a tool for working with addiction, will be explained so clinicians can apply the model right away. Participants will also learn about Gendlin’s Focusing/Felt Sense method of psychotherapy and how to guide clients into connecting with their bodies. A mixture of didactic information, experiential practices, demonstrations, and case examples will guide the clinician in applying the model. This course will be informative for those new to the field of trauma/addiction as well as seasoned practitioners.

What will you learn?

By the end of the webinar, therapists will have learned to:

  • Describe three concepts in polyvagal theory as they apply to trauma informed embodied psychotherapy.
  • Describe the neurophysiological states of the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™ for treating trauma and addiction.
  • Explain trauma and addiction through the lens of Polyvagal theory.
  • Name the four avenues into Gendlin’s concept of Felt sense and begin to apply this embodied practice in psychotherapy.
  • Explain the Three Circle Practice and how to apply it with clients.
  • Describe the Embodied Assessment and Treatment Tool™ (EATT) and how it differs from the traditional pathologizing model.
  • Helping clients identify their autonomic state and use a variety of strategies to help them heal.

Jan Winhall

This 6 hour webinar will be an introduction to Jan Winhall's book “Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model”. The author will offer a detailed description of the integrative theoretical framework of the model she devised over the course of more than 40 years of work with trauma survivors. She will also demonstrate how to apply this model by introducing participants to the concept of the Embodied Assessment and Treatment Tool™ (EATT). Using the EATT™, it is possible to conduct a somatic assessment of a patient's ability to regulate their autonomic nervous system and integrate embodied experiences. Over time, as the therapist carries out an experiential assessment, the latter becomes a real organized treatment plan that can be kept online as a medical record. The EATT™ package can be downloaded from Jan Winhall's website. Detailed examples of how to use this Tool will be shown during the webinar. Jan will also explain another tool for working with addiction, Carnes' Three Circles Practice, allowing participants to be able to apply this model to their own clinical practice immediately. Participants will also be able to deepen their knowledge of the therapeutic method of Focusing and the concept of felt sense developed by Gendlin, learning how to guide clients and help them connect with their bodies. The webinar will therefore offer educational information, moments dedicated to experiential practice, demonstrations and examples of clinical cases that will guide participants in applying the model. This is a highly informative webinar, aimed at both therapists just starting out in the field of trauma and addiction treatment, as well as more experienced therapists
