A regulated nervous system promotes healing by providing the felt sense of safety essential in creating a calm mind and settled body. As we settle our nervous systems, we, as practitioners, are truly present for our clients. This co-regulation creates a grounded presence that “is a positive predictor for the therapeutic alliance.” (Geller et al., 2010; Pos, Geller, & Oghene, 2011).

The morning will be devoted to a deep dive into the research of Dr. Porges, including his groundbreaking work that led to a novel understanding of how the Vagus nerve functions. The clinical breakthroughs manifested when Porges began to collaborate with Deb Dana MSW, Peter Levine, Bessel van der Kolk and others.

The afternoon will be devoted to how we implement our newly acquired information into hands-on clinical work. This includes demonstrations with ample opportunity to practice integrating this simple yet profound material into your practice.
