Polyvagal theory: A brief online workshop
The field of psychotherapy has made a paradigm shift, with the advent of understanding about polyvagal theory and its implications for counselling, psychotherapy, and mental health. This is especially so in work with survivors of trauma.
The three-hour workshop will outline the organising structure and principles of the vagal nerve and of polyvagal theory. The workshop will be suitable for any student, graduate, or professional who has an interest in polyvagal theory.
We shall look at polyvagal theory in respect of implications for therapy and for our self-knowledge. We will also be putting some of the theory into practice in our own lives.
It is important to note that the time constraints will not allow us to go into the active treatment of trauma and that this will be thoroughly covered in the CPD programme that is offered by the SPTI Certificate training, “A relational approach to the treatment of trauma”.
Please note: A computer with internet access and a webcam is required to access this training, delivered online via Zoom.
