The Rhythm of Regulation:

Building a Polyvagal Foundation for Your Clinical Practice     

The Rhythm of Regulation series is based on the work of renowned neuroscience researcher Stephen Porges.  His development of Polyvagal Theory presents an expanded understanding of the ways the autonomic nervous system influences our experiences of safety and our ability for connection.  

Dr. Porges’ research offers a cutting edge framework for the treatment of trauma.  Polyvagal Theory provides a state of the art map outlining a new way of looking at habitual patterns of action, disconnection, and engagement.  

In this workshop series, Deb Dana translates Dr. Porges’ theory into clinical application with the creation of an integrated approach to polyvagal intervention.  We begin with an examination of Polyvagal Theory and the science of the autonomic nervous system followed by comprehensive study of the phases of polyvagal intervention.
