Objectives

  1. Apply the lens of the Polyvagal theory to distinguish the adaptive nature of behaviors in children diagnosed with and without DSM diagnoses.
  2. Differentiate between viewing and manipulating surface behaviors and addressing the upstream causes of behaviors across diagnostic categories of the DSM.
  3. Evaluate how the process of neuroception can be utilized as a guiding principle for treatment planning and treatment techniques.

Outline

  • Understanding Behaviors as adaptations of the autonomic nervous system: A paradigm shift
  • Case Study that illustrates the Problems with Targeting Surface Behaviors: Know the Problem in order to shift the strategies

  • Understanding Individual Differences and Tailoring our Support for Children and Families
  • The Developmental Iceberg: Categorizing Individual Differences in Tailoring Support for each child
  • Individual differences in sensory processing, and how the auditory system can trigger defense or receptivity. The difference between passive and active pathway interventions and the use of the Safe and Sound Protocol as an example of a passive pathway intervention that harnesses the neuroception of safety. 
  • Safety is Treatment and Treatment is Safety: Practical Tips
  • How the neuroscience of safety helps us plan treatment goals: Examples and principles of neural exercises and how they apply the ‘vagal brake’ to calm and promote resilience
