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.  

THE RHYTHM OF REGULATION 
BUILDING A POLYVAGAL FOUNDATION FOR YOUR CLINICAL PRACTICE

This intensive training program brings Polyvagal Theory into clinical application providing clinicians a guide to help clients reshape their nervous systems and rewrite the trauma stories carried in their autonomic pathways.  In the four modules of this training, Deb Dana translates Polyvagal Theory into clinical application teaching the science of connection and a comprehensive approach to Polyvagal Theory guided intervention.  The training series is designed to create fluency in the language of polyvagal theory and expertise in using a polyvagal framework in clinical interventions.             COME EXPLORE THE SCIENCE OF CONNECTION!
