Join world-renowned treatment expert Deb Dana to discover how to quickly guide clients out of anxiety and terror, and into safety and connection!

When clients arrive in your office, they often bring years of complex feelings, stress, trauma and stories that could take years to untangle. These distressing events get locked in their bodies… and the fact is, just TALKING about the issues often isn’t enough.

Fortunately, we now know how to get more effective results, quickly, simply by learning how to map the clients’ nervous system.

The power of the revolutionary Polyvagal Theory is that it provides that map… so we can understand our clients' response to stress and help them work through the pain.

Deb Dana is one of the first clinicians to create a system for using Polyvagal Theory in therapy, in a way that can be applied to enhance any model of psychotherapy! She worked closely with Stephen Porges, the developer of the theory, to develop practical interventions and a model that is widely applicable to short or long-term therapy.

Now, in this ground-breaking Masterclass, you can see Deb Dana’s approach in action through real client sessions where she’ll show you how to apply Polyvagal-Informed Treatments… so you can move clients toward powerful results, in just a single session.

This is your rare opportunity to see Deb Dana in action with real clients and experience how applying Polyvagal Theory insights can transform your treatment outcomes!

Join Deb in session with real clients suffering from trauma, anxiety, phobias, grief, and fear. You’ll learn:

  • How to develop a healing map from a client’s nervous system
  • How to use your own nervous system to help clients stay grounded so they don’t fear facing challenges
  • How to help your clients quickly learn to regulate their own nervous systems after they leave your office
  • And more!


In each session, join Deb in a one-on-one analysis with Networker Continuing Education Director and clinician, Zachary Taylor, as they discuss how Deb is working moment-by-moment in real time through the sessions...

…so you can learn the exact process to quickly implement Polyvagal Theory insights into your own work.

Whether you’ve studied Polyvagal Theory before or not, you’ve never seen it like this!

As part of this course, you’ll also get exclusive bonuses, including an in-depth interview with Deb Dana and Stephen Porges, as well as Deb Dana’s hand-selected handouts, the complete session transcripts, and an in-depth article on understanding the role of touch as a vital source of healing.

Stephen Porges

Stephen W. Porges, PhD, is a Distinguished University Scientist at Indiana University, where he is the founding director of the Traumatic Stress Research Consortium within the Kinsey Institute. He holds the position of Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina and Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Maryland.

Dr. Porges served as president of both the Society for Psychophysiological Research and the Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences and is a former recipient of a National Institute of Mental Health Research Scientist Development Award.

In 1994, Dr. Porges proposed the Polyvagal Theory, a theory that links the evolution of the mammalian autonomic nervous system to social behavior and emphasizes the importance of physiological state in the expression of behavioral problems and psychiatric disorders. The theory is leading to innovative treatments based on insights into the mechanisms mediating symptoms observed in several behavioral, psychiatric, and physical disorders.

He is the author of The Polyvagal Theory: Neurophysiological foundations of Emotions, Attachment, Communication, and Self-regulation (Norton, 2011), The Pocket Guide to the Polyvagal Theory: The Transformative Power of Feeling Safe (Norton, 2017), and co-editor of Clinical Applications of the Polyvagal Theory: The Emergence of Polyvagal-Informed Therapies (Norton, 2018).
