This 9-hour course with the Polyvagal Institute combines on-demand lectures by Jan Winhall, as well as recorded conversations between Jan and Stephen Porges which further detail polyvagal principles presented in the coursework. Also included is a live 90-min Q&A session with Jan held at 12:00 pm September 10, 2021.
The course explores the intersection of trauma and addiction and how to address both with an embodied approach. It dives deeply into the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model, which integrates Porges’ Polyvagal theory, and Gendlin’s Felt Sense Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy process, enabling us to appreciate trauma/addictive behaviors as adaptive responses to maladaptive environments. See more about the course.
There is also a small promotional video available that you can share. It includes a small teaching piece from Jan, and some conversation between Steve and Jan. You can view the video.
