Exploring Trauma Related Issues & Finding Self-Regulation

The use of drugs and alcohol as a way of self-medicating, managing, or regulating the kind of emotional dysregulation that can be the result of relational trauma is common. Dr. Porges and Dr. Dayton will look at the possible interface between the use of polyvagal, experiential work and role play as ways of exploring trauma related issues and finding self-regulation.

For the first time ever, Dr. Tian Dayton and Professor Stephen Porges will host a joint masterclass delving deeper than ever into Dr. Dayton’s recognised process models Socio Metrics, and Relational Trauma Repair (RTR), exploring how these pioneering models intertwine with Professor Porges’ Polyvagal theory, particularly looking at the interface between neuroception and trauma. Neuroception is the core to emotional processing and self-regulation. It takes place in our bodies and minds. This is where the synergy between Dr. Dayton and Professor Porges’ work can be found.

"We believe psychodrama and sociometry when viewed through the Polyvagal lens, offers a contained, psycho-educational, experiential approach to healing."

Plus, in addition to entry to the live online event, your ticket includes access to recordings for 30 days after the event has ended.

What We'll Cover

In this focused 1 to 1 case study session Dr. Dayton will explore how to work with the fight and flight response and the heightened traumatic response that occurs in a "Frozen Moment."

Dr. Dayton will then be joined by Professor Stephen Porges, the creator of the Polyvagal Theory. Professor Porges’ theory links the evolution of the mammalian autonomic nervous system to social behaviour and emphasises the importance of physiological state in the expression of behavioural problems and psychiatric disorders. In essence, the Polyvagal theory explains how our nervous system responds to stimuli. It is how the body scans, evaluates and reacts to cues of safety and danger. And because it is biologically active in all human experience, it provides a rich framework for understanding why people behave the way they do.

The autonomic nervous system is constantly evaluating cues in our environment, absorbing signals beneath awareness and before cognition. It is taking place in ancient and primitive mechanisms developed in the service of survival through our evolution, detecting whether it is safe or dangerous. But neuroception can misread signals based on past experiences that may be inappropriate to understanding the present.

These signals come from three directions: outside (the lived environment), within (the internal organs) and between (signals of safety or danger from another living nervous system).

Fortunately, the nervous system can change and together Dr. Tian Dayton and Professor Stephen Porges will explore how RTR and Socio Metrics can be the catalyst for this change.
