I am so excited to take part in a three-day workshop where I will be directly!!! taught by Dr. Peter Levine, the developer of Somatic Experiencing (SE) who was also a stress consultant for NASA during the development of the space shuttle and Dr. Stephen Porges, the founder of the Polyvagal Theory, which emphasizes the importance of physiological state in the expression of “behavior problems”, developmental and psychiatric disorders.
Long story short – Peter Levine and Stephen Porges completely revolutionized the way we look at “safety” within the body, body-awareness, and the nervous system.
It’s safe to say that I am going to be a little starstruck 🤩 I’ve admired these two for YEARS!
I recently added to my credentials and will soon be offering the facilitation of a service that uses Dr. Stephen Porges revolutionary theory. There are tons of studies and clinical trials that prove its benefit towards regulating the nervous system, improving social engagement with others, improving auditory processing, sleep, pain, and handling tough emotions.
I am especially excited because it has been clinically shown to support individuals on the Autism Spectrum and those with ADHD ♥️
