Full Course Description


The Neurophysiology of Trauma, Attachment, Self-Regulation & Emotions

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Characterize the principle features and foundation of the Polyvagal Theory.
  2. Articulate how the Polyvagal Theory may explain behavioral features related to psychiatric disorders and other behavioral problems.
  3. Determine how maladaptive behaviors, which may accompany several psychiatric disorders, may reflect adaptive responses triggered by survival mechanisms.
  4. Communicate how the neural process (neuroception) evaluates risk in the environment and triggers adaptive neural circuits promoting either social interactions or defensive behaviors.
  5. Appraise the definition of the features of the Social Engagement System to include the neural pathways that connect the brain, face, and heart.
  6. Illustrate how deficits in the regulation of the Social Engagement System are expressed as core features of several psychiatric disorders.
  7. Specify how therapeutic presence is based on the interaction between the Social Engagement Systems of client and therapist.
  8. Evaluate how the Social Engagement System is involved in optimizing therapeutic outcomes.
  9. Ascertain which features of the Social Engagement System are compromised by stress and trauma.
  10. Determine how acoustic stimulation, via the Safe and Sound Protocol, may function as an acoustic vagal nerve stimulator to shift autonomic state and facilitate spontaneous social engagement behaviors.
