Description

Despite the diversity of content that brings clients to therapy, difficulty regulating their emotional experience is at the heart of their struggles. Clients can feel hijacked by extreme emotional states, uncomfortable in their own skin, and think or behave in ways they wish they wouldn’t. Polyvagal Theory helps us understand what’s happening on a biological level when our clients are emotionally dysregulated. And IFS offers a compassionate, non-shaming approach to healing the wounded, burdened, and traumatized parts of clients’ systems and increasing internal harmony and connection. In this session, you’ll:

  • Discover how IFS allows us to work in a Polyvagal-informed way to help clients heal
  • Learn IFS strategies to shift your clients’ nervous systems towards regulation and help them access their own capacity for healing
  • Explore how to help your clients develop attuned, trusting relationships with their hyperaroused and hypoaroused parts
  • Discuss real video examples of how to seamlessly integrate IFS and PVT in treatment
