    Using Poly Vagal Theory in Couples Counseling

    The autonomic nervous system powerfully defines our clients’ experiences of safety and influences their capacity for connection.  Operating outside of conscious awareness, autonomic circuits assess safety and risk and initiate actions to navigate the challenges of daily living.  In this workshop participants will first learn the organizing principles of polyvagal theory and then explore practices to help couples identify and interrupt their familiar response patterns and strategies to shape their autonomic nervous systems toward safety and connection.  



    Deb Dana

    My passion for neuroscience leads me into collaboration with researchers to better understand the science and psychology of lasting change. This passion informs my clinical work, my teaching, and my writing.  I have a particular interest in Polyvagal Theory and the influence of the autonomic nervous system in shaping the ways we move through the world.  

    We come into the world wired to connect.  With our first breath we embark on a biologically driven quest to feel safe in our bodies, our environments, and in relationship with others. Life experiences often interrupt our path toward safety and connection propelling us instead into patterns of mistrust and dysregulation.  

    Along our path to healing...

    We learn to safely remember our histories and become active authors of our life stories.   

    We investigate the origins of our patterns of protection and connection.  

    We explore creating relationships that bring joy, movement that feels free, and daily living experiences that are filled with abundance.
