“A new, deeply humane and promising model of addiction treatment.”
Author of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction
In this workshop Jan, author of Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model, takes us through her inspiring and effective approach to treating Trauma and Addictions – and introduces effective embodied practices that allow us to tap into the body’s inner wisdom. Jan presents the felt sense polyvagal model, a paradigm-shifting, bottom-up approach that considers addiction as an adaptive attempt to regulate emotional states and trauma.
This compassionate approach to understanding and treating trauma and addiction is adaptable to any school of psychotherapy and will appeal to addiction and trauma specialists, clinicians and practitioners in all mental health fields and anyone seeking alternative approaches to work through trauma and addiction. It will also be of support to those personally seeking alternative approaches to working through their trauma and addictions.
