This webinar will be Part Two of “Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model.” Routledge, 2021. The model provides a paradigm shift from the traditional disease approach to an embodied understanding of trauma and addiction through the lens of the autonomic nervous system. From an embodied perspective addiction and other trauma responses are viewed as adaptive responses to maladaptive environments. Two embodied processes of Interoception (felt sense) and neuroception (polyvagal theory) will be discussed in detail. We will also deconstruct current pathologizing paradigms and celebrate the wisdom of the body.
