It is the responsibility of the autonomic nervous system to ensure we survive in moments of danger and thrive in times of safety.


Polyvagal Theory brings hope to therapists in their work with clients whose patterns of protection keep them imprisoned in experiences of disconnection. Through this “science of connection,” the autonomic nervous system can be reshaped toward safety, regulation, and relationship.

 Digital Seminar in cooperation with PESI: Polyvagal Theory Informed Trauma Assessment & Interventions

An Autonomic Roadmap to Safety, Connection, and Healing: Trauma resolution is not about thinking.  Healing depends, instead, on the work undertaken at the level of the autonomic nervous system, which shapes our clients’ experiences of safety and influences their capacity for connection. Traumatic events have a far-reaching impact on this system - autonomic pathways trigger survival responses that often lead our clients on a painful journey into a state of shutdown, collapse, and dissociation.  Polyvagal Theory offers a revolutionary roadmap to lead clients out of their adaptive survival responses into the autonomically regulated state of safety that is necessary for successful trauma treatment.
