Purchase will include 1.5 hour video and activity sheets with 30 minutes set aside to complete the activity. Purchasers agree that they will complete the activity and quiz forwarded with the video. Learning objectives: Learn how the Polyvagal Theory provides a framework for understanding and treating clients who are experiencing the stress of Covid 19, and chronic stress, in their day-to-day lives. Gain an understanding of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) and how it impacts the client. Revisit the trauma model to understand how clients can be triggered by current events. Gain concrete strategies for supporting clients as they navigate uncertainty, now and in the future. Understand the therapist’s role in providing services to clients while simultaneously experiencing similar uncertainties.

Learning objectives of this course

This training is designed to help clinicians treat clients during times of tremendous uncertainty, change, and isolation. The Polyvagal Theory will be presented as a framework for understanding and explaining a client’s unique response to real and perceived experiences of danger and safety during Covid 19. The training will also explore grief, loss, trauma, and accumulated stress to offer additional insights into how clients might be navigating this time. Concrete strategies will be offered to support clients, help them minimize their experience of danger, and maximize their sense of safety. It will  also acknowledge and address the possibility of therapists’ unsettled feelings caused by the very same sources of uncertainty.
