Course Breakdown:

Part 1: Discovering the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™

Our current model of understanding addiction as a brain disease is failing. Rates are soaring and people are dying in the streets. We desperately need a fresh approach. One that addresses addiction and other trauma responses where they live, in the body. Addictive behaviours are the bodies attempt to emotionally regulate by acting as propellers that facilitate neurophysiological shifts in our nervous system.

Jan Winhall introduces you to the basic principles of Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory and Gendlin’s Focusing Oriented Psychotherapy. With this information, you will discover The Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™ (FSPM) and its application to the treatment of trauma and addiction. The FSPM shifts the current pathologizing paradigm to a strength-based approach.

Jan will then answer the questions that arose from the audience at the time.

Part 2: Applying learnt tools with live demonstrations

In this section you will learn the clinical strategies and tools to work with addiction (i.e. the Embodied Assessment and Treatment Tool™ and the Three Principle Practice). The EATT™ provides a somatic assessment of client’s capacity to regulate their autonomic nervous system and integrate embodied experiences. As you develop the experiential assessment over time it becomes an organized treatment plan and can be stored online as a clinical record.

This will be followed by live demonstrations to show how to use the Embodied Assessment and Treatment Tool™ in clinical practice. Carnes Three Circle Practice, a tool for working with addiction, will be explained so that you can apply the model right away. You will also learn about Gendlin’s Focusing/Felt Sense method of psychotherapy and how to guide clients into connecting with their bodies.

This is followed by a final Q&A session.
