Polyvagal Theory in Clinical Practice

with Kian de la Cour


This webinar outlines Stephen Porges' ground-breaking Polyvagal theory and the new understanding of the triune autonomic nervous system (ANS), previously understood as binary and reciprocal. Added to the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system branches is the relatively recent mammalian social nervous system which is enervated by the ventral vagal complex.


This talk covers the evolutionary origins and physical anatomy of the triune ANS, points out common misconceptions and describes implications for clinical practice - principally the crucial importance of social engagement encouraging a client's perception of safety as a prerequisite for learning, relaxation and healing.
