The Polyvagal Theory in counselling and psychotherapy
This six-week online course will take an in-depth exploration of the Polyvagal Theory and its application in counselling and psychotherapy and will be facilitated by Maggi McAllister-MacGregor.
The Polyvagal Theory, developed by Dr Stephen Porges, provides a way of understanding the way our nervous system responds to safety and threat. It gives us a way to understand the effects of trauma from a nervous system perspective and how to approach working with trauma.
Each weekly session will be two hours in duration and over the six weeks we will cover:
- overview of the Polyvagal Theory
- the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)
- safety and threat
- regulation and relationships
- integrating the body into therapeutic work
- application in therapy
The course is aimed at qualified and trainee counsellors and psychotherapists.
Course Dates: Weekly from 29th July - 2nd September from 11am - 1pm.
Cost: £400. Early bird price before 1st July is £350.
