Program Information

Objectives

  1. Articulate the foundation of Polyvagal Theory as it relates to clinical treatment.
  2. Communicate how the Polyvagal Theory may demystify several features related to psychiatric disorders and behavioral problems in clients.
  3. Evaluate how deficits in the regulation of the “Social Engagement System” are expressed as core features of several psychiatric disorders as it relates to case conceptualization.
  4. Reconstruct how the neural process, neuroception, evaluates risk in the environment and triggers adaptive neural circuits, which promote either social interactions or defensive behaviors in clients.
  5. Characterize how therapeutic presence is based on the interaction between the “Social Engagement Systems” of client and therapist.
  6. Analyze the efficacy the “Social Engagement System” in optimizing therapeutic outcome in clients.
  7. Breakdown the features of the “Social Engagement System” as it relates to clinical practice.
