About The Course

Recorded Digital Seminar

If you want to breathe new life into your CBT practice…

If you want to weave polyvagal wisdom into your clinical work…

If you want to help you and your clients (re)build the body-mind bridge...

…then you might enjoy exploring how you can combine polyvagal theory (PVT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) into a whole more than the sum of their parts! We’ll talk concepts, practice, and techniques, so that you can enrich the science of thinking with the neuroscience of safety.

You will learn some immediately useful strategies as well as a broader mindset for enriching both approaches. As research emerges showing that CBT is less effective than it used to be,1 the time is ripe to infuse it with the emerging polyvagal approach.

Participants will be able to :

  • Understand 2 reasons why thought distortions are beneficial
  • Learn 3 ways to deepen cognitive reframes with polyvagal insights
  • Utilize 2 polyvagal-inspired, body-based interventions that can enhance CBT engagement
