This advanced trauma workshop will go beyond the basics and explore fundamental inner workings of our bodies starting with deep dive into epigenetics and intergenerational trauma, moving into a theory based exploration of the polyvagal theory and the vagus nerve, and ending with a time of direct application of what was learned about regulation and stimulation of the vagus nerve.

Objectives: Participants will

1. Gain a basic understanding of epigenetics and intergenerational trauma and how they impact the body and brain.
2. Learn the foundations of Polyvagal Theory and applications for families you are currently working with.
3. Identify 3 practical strategies both children and adults can use to stimulate the vagus nerve.

Recommended for LBSW and LMSW advanced skill level.
