Description

Join Dr. Stephen Porges and Deb Dana, LCSW for an exploration of the scientific foundations of Polyvagal Theory and the integration of these organizing principles in clinical practice. Explore the unique art and science of Polyvagal Theory with a journey into understanding the principles that have revolutionized our understanding of how we are human and experimenting with the practices that bring theory into clinical application. Stephen Porges will set the stage for the workshop presenting the scientific basis and constructs of his ground-breaking Polyvagal Theory. Deb Dana will then translate the science using her own unique framework and explain the tools and techniques she has developed to integrate the theory into clinical work. In the second half of the workshop, Deb will conduct a live session illustrating the elements of polyvagal-guided clinical work. Following the demo, Stephen and Deb will deconstruct the experience with the client and the audience to delve into the principles and show the practical and universal applications of using a polyvagal lens in clinical work.
