Oppositional Defiance or Faulty Neuroception: Disruptive Behaviors through the Lens of the Polyvagal Theory

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.
