Description of the Training part 1

Engaging the Rhythm of Regulation: Foundations of Polyvagal Informed Practice Part I is the first training in the newly launched Foundations of Polyvagal Informed Practice training series. Clinicians taking this workshop will gain a solid understanding of Polyvagal principles and learn specific ways to bring a Polyvagal lens to clinical work. This workshop is required for participants who want to register for Deepening the Rhythm of Regulation: Foundations of Polyvagal Informed Practice Part II. Participants who complete both Foundations I and II will be eligible to register for the Advanced Clinical Practice workshop which will be offered for the first time in 2022. This 5 module Training introduces you to the basic theoretical and practical understanding of the Polyvagal Theory. This workshop is appropriate for psychologists, psychotherapists, M.D. and other helping professionals. The second workshop in the Rhythm of Regulations series will be offered in 2021, tentatively. To apply to the second Training you must have completed Part I.

Topics and learning objectives

The autonomic nervous system is at the heart of daily living, powerfully shaping experiences of safety and influencing the capacity for connection. Through the organizing principles of hierarchy, neuroception, and co-regulation, Polyvagal Theory has revolutionized our understanding of how this system works. Guided by Polyvagal Theory, we have a new appreciation of the ways experience shapes the nervous system and of the pathways that lead to healing. With this updated map of the autonomic circuits of connection, mobilization, and collapse, we have practical ways to effectively help clients identify and interrupt patterns of protection and strategies to shape their systems toward the regulated state of safety and connection that is necessary for successful treatment.

In this workshop participants will explore Polyvagal Theory by learning the language of the nervous system as they map their own autonomic pathways and discover how to become a regulated and regulating resource for clients. Participants will learn how to bring the power of Polyvagal Theory directly into clinical work with practices designed to reliably help clients re-shape their systems and re-write the stories that are carried in their autonomic pathways. Participants will experiment with multiple ways to map autonomic responses, create skills to safely explore patterns of action, disconnection, and engagement, and work with techniques to build autonomic regulation and resilience. This workshop will use individual and dyadic experiential work, role play, demonstrations, and clinical videos to offer participants a foundation in the application of Polyvagal informed practices.

Participants will learn:

  • The organizing principles of Polyvagal Theory
  • How to create autonomic maps and use them as a guide in treatment
  • Skills to track habitual response patterns
  • How to build individual and interactive resources to shape the system toward connection
  • Practices that engage the co-regulating pathways of the Social Engagement System in therapy sessions
  • Beginning techniques to reshape the autonomic nervous system
  • Ways to introduce a Polyvagal approach into clinical practice
  • How to use the guiding questions of Polyvagal informed therapy to shape clinical work

Overview of the part II program

SCHEDULED FOR MAY, 2021 in SITGES, SPAIN if The Pandemic is over.

Deepening the Rhythm of Regulation: Foundations of Polyvagal Informed Practice Part II

The ability to flexibly navigate the challenges of everyday life is a marker of well-being and is dependent on the autonomic nervous system. Clients come to treatment with a compromised ability to regulate their autonomic responses. The response patterns that were once adaptive and necessary for survival now bring suffering. When we look toward the autonomic nervous system, we find the biological pathways to healing and a roadmap to creating new, resourcing patterns of connection.

Engaging autonomic pathways in service of safety and connection is an essential ingredient in successful therapy. Building on the basic skills presented in Foundations I, this workshop dives deeper into the elements of Polyvagal informed practice supporting clinicians in embedding the principles of Polyvagal Theory in all aspects of their clinical work. Using individual and dyadic experiential work, role play, demonstrations, and clinical videos, this workshop will offer participants multiple experiences of Polyvagal informed practice and new ways to befriend, attend, and shape the nervous system.

Clinicians taking this workshop will gain competence in using Polyvagal Theory as the foundation of their therapeutic work and become confident in their abilities to offer therapy in ways that honor the role of the autonomic nervous system in resolving post traumatic patterns of response. Deepening the Rhythm of Regulation: Foundations of Polyvagal Informed Practice Part II completes the Foundations training series. Completion of this series is a pre-requisite for clinicians wanting to register for the Advanced Clinical Training Series.

Participants will learn:

  • How to attend to context, choice, and connection
  • Strategies to incorporate the physical environment in the treatment process
  • Practices to regulate the pace of a session
  • The elements of autonomic conversations
  • How to guide clients in staying out of their cognitive stories
  • Skills to engage with different autonomic profiles
  • Techniques to work with the autonomic hierarchy
  • Ways to assess autonomic change
  • How to use between session work
  • Practices to safely introduce touch
  • The responsibilities of being a Polyvagal informed therapist
