Objectives

  1. Categorize specific behaviours as they relate to each of the three basic pathways of the autonomic nervous system (ANS).
  2. Utilize neuroception-informed interventions, including physiological co-regulation and interpersonal engagement, to treat oppositional behaviour. 
  3. Appraise the efficacy of integrating the Polyvagal Theory into “behaviour management” programs. 

Outline
