When life-and therapy-brings scary moments, it's the body's autonomic nervous system that takes action. Polyvagal Theory has revolutionized our understanding of both how this system works, and how to create safety and connection. In this workshop, you'll learn how to harness the healing potential of the autonomic nervous system to help your clients navigate the storms of fight, flight, and collapse. You'll discover how to:

* Use your own autonomic nervous system to create an environment of safety for your clients
* Develop the expressive range of your eyes, voice, breath, and body to enrich your nonverbal attunement skills
* Help your clients listen to their internal state and let go of their problem story
* Reliably guide your clients from state to state and enhance their capacity for self-regulation
