Applied Polyvagal Theory in Somatic Psychology: An Embodied Approach to Trauma Recovery: Video Course

Applied Polyvagal Theory in Somatic Psychology: An Embodied Approach to Trauma Recovery: Video Course

The mind alone cannot fully heal the symptoms of stress or trauma. For true healing to occur, the body must be an active participant in the process. Polyvagal theory, a transdiagnostic approach to therapy, offers a powerful framework for addressing the physiological roots that underlie a wide range of physical and mental health conditions. By compassionately understanding and treating imbalances within the autonomic nervous system, therapists and clients can find lasting relief from mood disorders, anxiety, and traumatic stress-related conditions.

Full course information

While traditional talk therapy often focuses on narrating specific life events or losses, it may not be sufficient to facilitate the rebalancing of the autonomic nervous system. In contrast, research-based and time-tested somatic tools, along with yoga-based breath, movement, and awareness practices, can swiftly reduce anxiety, obsessive thinking, and feelings of hopelessnessWhen integrated with applied polyvagal theory in psychotherapy, these techniques lay a powerful foundation for lasting changes that promote physiological balance and psychological wellness.

Guided by Arielle Schwartz, PhD, CCTP-II, E-RYT, an internationally sought teacher, therapeutic yoga instructor, and a leading voice in PTSD and complex trauma healing, this programme empowers therapists to incorporate applied polyvagal theory into somatic therapies.

Throughout the programme, we will:

  • Discover how to fine-tune the nervous system moment-by-moment, aiding clients in releasing chronic stress
  • Address clients’ well-being through yogic-based breath, movement, and awareness practices, promoting a holistic healing approach
  • Learn rapid stress-reduction techniques and effective nervous system regulation methods
  • Equip clients with tools to safely release stress and trauma from their bodies, fostering embodied healing
  • Teach clients natural ways to stimulate their vagus nerve, enhancing physical and emotional health

Applied Polyvagal Theory in Somatic Psychology provides a comprehensive and transformative approach to trauma recovery. By harnessing the power of somatic intelligence and integrating it with polyvagal theory, therapists can facilitate profound healing and foster resilience in their clients. Join us on this transformative journey and unlock the potential of an embodied approach to trauma recovery.
