Event description
Training for Professionals, Parents and Carers, or for anybody who would like to become 'Trauma-Informed' in their work or relationships.

About this event

This is a workshop for anybody who would like to become trauma-informed in their work and relationships. This training can be used to support individuals who present with a range of difficulties including Anxiety, Attachment, Depression, Anger, Relationship Difficulties and Trauma.

Based on Stephen Porges' revolutionary research into the Vagus Nerve, this training will explore how the Autonomic Nervous System affects mental health whilst striving to keep us safe.

You will become trauma-informed through an understanding of how we, as mammals, have developed 3 states of being; Safe and Social, Fight/Flight and Shut Down, and how and why we can become stuck in any of these states. We will explore the implications of this for mental health and well-being.

You will leave with a toolbox of ideas and techniques to support and facilitate both self and others to move up and down the Polyvagal 'ladder' of states. You will gain knowledge of how to empower others to understand how to engage their own safe and social state. You will become trauma-informed in order to create ‘safe’ environments for those that you work with or support.

Aim:

To become trauma-informed through developing a basic understanding of the Polyvagal Theory and how it can be used to support self and others.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the day learners will:

1. Understand the basic principles of Polyvagal Theory including the basic biology and evolution of the Vagus Nerve and the Autonomic Nervous System.

2. Understand what ‘Neuroception’ is and how this can activate different survival states.

3. Recognise some of the signs and symptoms of different survival states.

4. Understand the link between unhealthy Neuroception and various mental health conditions.

5. Explore strategies and techniques to create safe and trauma-informed environments and relationships.

6. Explore strategies and techniques to empower self others to access their own safe and social state.

This will be taking place via zoom.

Review from previous courses:

"Emma is so passionate and enthusiastic about the Polyvagal Theory that she delivers a brilliant training on this subject. I really enjoyed her open style of encouraging all attending to add our own thoughts as she facilitated our understanding of this enlightening and progressive theory, throughout the day. Warm, friendly and knowledgeable, Emma's delivery was excellent! I feel really clear about the theory and very ready to begin to apply it both in my own life, as well as therapeutically with my clients." (Counsellor and Supervisor)
