Objectives
  1. Determine the principles and features of the Polyvagal Theory.
  2. Evaluate maladaptive behaviors, including states of dissociation, and how they may be an emergent property of an adaptive physiological state triggered by survival mechanisms.
  3. Propose a face-heart connection that defines a social engagement system linking bodily feelings with facial expression, vocal intonation, and gesture.
  4. Analyze the neural process (neuroception) that evaluates risk in the environment and triggers adaptive neural circuits that promote either social engagement or adaptive survival strategies.
  5. Utilize an autonomic map to identify common body responses, behaviors, and beliefs for each autonomic state.
  6. Determine ways to engage the co-regulating pathways of the Social Engagement System to create an environment of safety in clinical sessions.
  7. Justify how the autonomic nervous system operates as an internal surveillance system and its impact on clients’ habitual responses to trauma.
  8. Practice the trauma-informed therapist’s role as co-regulator and the impact on clinical outcomes.
  9. Assess for patterns in clients’ autonomic states to better inform treatment planning.

Discussion and Q&A with Speakers

Author

STEPHEN PORGES, PH.D.

Stephen W. Porges, PhD, is Distinguished University Scientist at Indiana University, where he is the founding director of the Traumatic Stress Research Consortium within the Kinsey Institute. He holds the position of Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina and Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Maryland.

Dr. Porges served as president of both the Society for Psychophysiological Research and the Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences and is a former recipient of a National Institute of Mental Health Research Scientist Development Award. He has published more than 300 peer reviewed scientific papers across several disciplines including anesthesiology, biomedical engineering, critical care medicine, ergonomics, exercise physiology, gerontology, neurology, neuroscience, obstetrics, pediatrics, psychiatry, psychology, psychometrics, space medicine, and substance abuse.

In 1994 Dr. Porges proposed the Polyvagal Theory, a theory that links the evolution of the mammalian autonomic nervous system to social behavior and emphasizes the importance of physiological state in the expression of behavioral problems and psychiatric disorders. The theory is leading to innovative treatments based on insights into the mechanisms mediating symptoms observed in several behavioral, psychiatric, and physical disorders. He is the author of The Polyvagal Theory: Neurophysiological foundations of Emotions, Attachment, Communication, and Self-regulation (Norton, 2011), The Pocket Guide to the Polyvagal Theory: The Transformative Power of Feeling Safe (Norton, 2017) and co-editor of Clinical Applications of the Polyvagal Theory: The Emergence of Polyvagal-Informed Therapies (Norton, 2018). Dr. Porges is also the creator of a music-based intervention, the Safe and Sound Protocolâ„¢, which currently is used by more than 1000 therapists to improve spontaneous social engagement, to reduce hearing sensitivities, and to improve language processing, state regulation, and spontaneous social engagement.
