This is a place for us to explore, through a polyvagal lens, the experiences of trauma and addiction. We are focusing on understanding addiction through the lens of the nervous system, as an adaptive response to maladaptive environments. Our group is growing in leaps and bounds indicating a hunger for change, for the kind of transformative change that polyvagal theory brings us.
Our next ZOOM MEETUP is Friday November 26 at 1 PM ET.
We will be discussing the Polyvagal Summit that is happening Friday, Saturday NOV 5th + 6th. Bring your curiosity and questions, and ideas and we will dive into the material. If you missed it, this is an opportunity to hear about the Summit.
Leslie Ellis, author of A Clinicians Guide to Dreamwork, (Routledge Press) will do a session on a powerful method for helping your traumatized clients work with nightmares. We will discuss the nature of nightmares and how they relate to the process of addiction/freeze states, through a polyvagal lens.
