About this workshop:

The field of Psychotherapy has made a paradigm shift with the advent of understanding about polyvagal theory and its implications for counselling, psychotherapy, and mental health. This is especially so in work with survivors of trauma. The three-hour workshop will outline the organising structure and principles of the vagal nerve and of polyvagal theory. The workshop will be suitable for any student, graduate, or professional who has an interest in polyvagal theory. We shall look at polyvagal theory in respect of implications for therapy and for our self-knowledge and through a few exercises put some of the theory into practice in our own lives.
It is important to note though that the time constraints will not allow us to go into the active treatment of trauma and that this will be thoroughly covered in the CPD programme that is offered by the SPTI Certificate training in: “A Relational Approach to the Treatment of Trauma”.
