Summary

A practical guide to working with the principles of polyvagal theory beyond the therapy session.

Deb Dana is the foremost translator of polyvagal theory into clinical practice. Here, in her third book on this groundbreaking theory, she provides therapists with a grab-bag of polyvagal-informed exercises for their clients, to use both within and between sessions.

These exercises offer readily understandable explanations of the ways the autonomic nervous system directs daily living. They use the principles of polyvagal theory to guide clients to safely connect to their autonomic responses and navigate daily experiences in new ways. The exercises are designed to be introduced over time in a variety of clinical sessions with accompanying exercises appropriate for use by clients between sessions to enhance the therapeutic change process.

Essential listening for any therapist who wants to take their polyvagal knowledge to the next level and is looking for easy ways to deliver polyvagal solutions with their clients.

Bet you can’t get past 1 minute

Can’t say much about the content because I couldn’t get past the computer voice narration. Shame it was so bad to listen to because I think would have been useful to me professionally.

Too academic to be useful

This writer understands the vagaries system but doesn’t understand how people actually integrate information. It reads like therapy for robots.
