Understanding the Body’s Response to Stress & Trauma: The Polyvagal Theory
In this episode, L. Kathryn Hart (Starr Commonwealth’s Director of Professional Training and Coaching) explains the Polyvagal Theory and how it applies to restoring balance in the autonomic nervous system. In addition, she touches on the functions of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems to support trauma practitioners’ understanding of what sensory experiences will be most supportive for the individuals they serve.
