Presented by Jessica Letourneau, LCPC, NCC

This course is designed to introduce participants to the autonomic nervous system and ways to apply Polyvagal Theory. Polyvagal Theory is a trauma-informed, strength based, “bottom-up” approach that can teach the importance of improving their physiological health, social connections, and mental/emotional wellbeing. Participants will identify the three principles of the autonomic nervous system: autonomic hierarchy, neuroception, and co-regulation. From there, participants will recognize the benefit of each branch of the autonomic nervous system.

Participants will then explore ways to promote states of well-being, joy, calm, social connection, post-traumatic growth, and neuroplasticity (brain change). Participants will utilize the “The Healthy Mind Platter” to recognize areas of lifestyle improvement and current strengths in their self-care routines.
