Polyvagal-Informed Approaches to Trauma Recovery
January 19 @ 12:00 pm - 3:15 pm
In this live webinar, Dr. Amber Elizabeth Gray offers a grounded introduction to Polyvagal-informed somatic psychotherapy for trauma and covers both basic theory and practical strategies to integrate into clinical practice. This training is available for CE approval. Visit E-cares to learn more about additional board information. There is a group discount for a team of 5 or more.
Polyvagal Theory offers insight into the central role that our autonomic nervous system, and our body-mind, plays in our well-being. This central role is crucial to work with survivors of trauma. Working with survivors requires clinicians’ ability to foster reciprocity in the clinical relationship, and to co-regulate with their clients.
These processes are rooted in our somatic self-regulation capacities. Polyvagal-informed psychotherapies support clients to restore a sense of connection, meaning and belonging.
