Objectives
  1. Investigate the clinical implications of the Polyvagal Theory’s explanation of how the nervous system reacts to social factors.
  2. Analyze the concept of neuroception and how it can impact autonomic states in clients.
  3. Assess how psychoeducation with clients about the nervous system can help generate buy-in for interventions designed to impact the nervous system’s reactions to stress, trauma and anxiety.
  4. Analyze the treatment implications of hyperarousal and hypoarousal on a client’s window of tolerance.
  5. Analyze therapeutic presence through the lens of Polyvagal Theory to help explain the mechanisms of change that presence evokes.
  6. Evaluate the current state of research on the application of a Polyvagal perspective to mental health treatment.
