Book Description :

What is trauma exactly? Or the ever-elusive concept known as the "flow state"? It can all be explained by the autonomic nervous system - our body's autopilot that keeps our heart beating, our lungs breathing, and our gut digesting; without us even thinking about it. The Polyvagal Theory is a new understanding of how our nervous system works, and explains everything from trauma, to the very essence of social behavior; while shedding light on possible treatments for autism and trauma. You'll never think of your body and brain the same way again.

Book Description :

Drawing on South and East Asian philosophies and medicines, this book illustrates how our bodies and minds are influenced by our actions, habits, aging, trauma and thought patterns. Using the analogy of being like water, Margot Rossi presents a range of practices - including imagery, Daoyin therapeutic movement, yoga and mindful attention - that help build awareness and potentially shift our form, physiologically and neurologically. The first section of the book is dedicated to exploring the virtues of being like water, based on 30 years of Rossi's professional and personal experience. Each essay ends with Daoyin therapeutic movements, learned and interpreted from the oral teachings of 88th-generation Daoist master Jeffrey Yuen. The second section offers teachings of Classical Chinese Medicine theory for patients and practitioners alike. It includes detailed case studies, basic diagnostic steps and demonstrates how health concerns can be used as a foundation for change and growth.

Book Description :

When times of threat and uncertainty come, it can be challenging to know what to do or how to help. Through Dangerous Terrain provides a guide and map for how to understand the human threat-response system, how we connect in times of safety, and how to provide wise and informed leadership during and after threat or trauma events. Though it is written in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and offers some reflections particular to the viral pandemic, it can be applied to any experience of personal or societal threat. When we can more fully understand how human physiology detects threats and seeks safety, we can mobilize the gifts of our religious and spiritual traditions and communities to offer the community care that is essential for health and outside the purview of traditional therapeutic contexts. This book offers key insights from leading trauma care models (Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing, and Polyvagal Theory), neuroscience, and pastoral care to help religious and spiritual community leaders offer informed care, hope, and support in the face of threat and trauma.

Book Description :

Are you struggling with chronic illness, PTSD, and depression? Are you chronically fighting with illnesses like anxiety, inflammation, fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue? If so, you've found the right book. Learning about the polyvagal theory is learning about the science of security, the science of feeling safe enough to fall in love with life, and take the risk of living. The polyvagal theory provides a physiological and psychological understanding of how and why patients move through a continuous cycle of mobilization, disconnection, and commitment. Through the lens of the polyvagal theory, we see the role of the autonomic nervous system as it shapes patient safety experiences and influences their ability to connect. The autonomic nervous system does not respond to the challenges of everyday life by telling us what we are or who we are, but by telling us how we are. This system manages the risk and creates connection patterns by changing our physiological state. These changes can be slight for many people, and, at times, when there are significant changes of state, their system is resilient enough to help them return to a regulated state. Trauma disrupts the process of building the autonomous circuit of secure connection and diverts the development of regulation and resilience. Patients with a traumatic history often experience more intense and extreme autonomic responses, which affects their ability to regulate and feel safe in relationships. This book helps everybody to incorporate polyvagal theory into daily life. It provides a comprehensive approach to the intervention by presenting ways to map the autonomous response and configure the autonomic nervous system for safety. With this book, the polyvagal theory is at your disposal, and empirical records and exercises either. In this book, you will find: The Benefits of Vagus Nerve How to Stimulate the Vagus Nerve to Relieve Stress How to Improve the functioning of your body How to Daily Activate Your Vagus Nerve Several Vagus Exercises Anxiety Exercises to relieve the pain The book puts a lot of emphasis on friendship with the nervous system, presents the science of connection, and provides an essential fluency in the language of polyvagal theory. These chapters set out the crucial elements of the method, build a solid knowledge base, and set the stage for working with the clinical applications presented in the rest of the book. With this book, you will learn how to stimulate your Vagus Nerve with practical self-help exercises. You will overcome Anxiety, Chronic Illness, Depression, PTSD, Inflammation, and more with remedies that are already present in your body. ➚ Scroll up and click on "Buy Now"!

It's an intriguing clarification of how our body handles enthusiastic pressure, and how we can utilize various treatments to revise the impact of the injury. Before polyvagal theory, our sensory system was envisioned as a two-section hostile framework, with more initiation flagging not so much quieting but rather more quieting flagging less enactment. Polyvagal theory recognizes a third sort of sensory system reaction that Porges calls the social commitment framework, a perky blend of enactment and quieting that works out of exceptional nerve impact.

Book Description :

In sharp contrast with the current top-down medicalized method to treating addiction, this book presents the felt sense polyvagal model (FSPM), a paradigm-shifting, bottom-up approach that considers addiction as an adaptive attempt to regulate emotional states and trauma. The felt sense polyvagal model draws from Porges' polyvagal theory, Gendelin's felt sense, and Lewis' learning model of addiction to offer a graphically illustrated and deeply embodied way of conceptualizing and treating addiction through supporting autonomic regulation. This model de-pathologizes addiction as it teaches embodied practices through tapping into the felt sense, the body’s inner wisdom. Chapters first present a theoretical framework and demonstrate the graphic model in both clinician and client versions and then teach the clinician how to use the model in practice by providing detailed treatment strategies. This text’s informed, compassionate approach to understanding and treating trauma and addiction is adaptable to any school of psychotherapy and will appeal to addiction experts, trauma specialists, and clinicians in all mental health fields.

Book Description :

Offers therapists a low tech–high impact, interactive way to explain polyvagal theory to clients. When clients are stuck in the cognitive experience of their story, an explanation of polyvagal theory helps to bring their attention to the autonomic experience— to bring the importance of the biology of their experience back into awareness. Yet polyvagal theory can be challenging and intimidating to explain. This flip chart offers therapists an easy, standardized way to support clients in understanding the role of the autonomic nervous system in their lives. Using a flip chart makes psycho- education an interactive experience. Therapists can feel confident in teaching their clients polyvagal theory by following the chart. With a flip chart visible during sessions, the therapist can: remind clients of the ways the autonomic nervous system has been shaped and is active in their daily living experience, display a page corresponding to the present moment, thus anchoring that experience in the theory, keep a page of the hierarchy visible when working with a client's habitual response pattern.

Outlining a new, optimistic way to understand autism, this concise and accessible book offers practical ideas to help children on the spectrum grow. The Polyvagal Theory suggests autism is a learnt response by the body - a result of the child being in a prolonged state of 'fight or flight' while their nervous system is still developing. This book explains the theory in simple terms and incorporates recent developments in brain plasticity research (the capacity of the brain to change throughout life) to give parents and professionals the tools to strengthen the child's brain-body connection and lessen the social and emotional impact of autism.
