Objectives
  1. Determine the principles of Polyvagal Theory and how to communicate them in client friendly language.
  2. Distinguish three circuits of the autonomic nervous system for use in client psychoeducation.
  3. Analyze how the autonomic nervous system operates as an internal surveillance system and its impact on clients’ habitual responses to trauma.
  4. Determine how to help clients engage the regulating capacities of the autonomic nervous system that create an environment of safety.
  5. Determine how to exercise the Social Engagement System to assist clients in becoming more adept in skills of co-regulation and creating reciprocal relationships.
  6. Assess for patterns in clients’ autonomic states to better inform treatment planning.
