Syllabus

Upon completion of this course, participants will learn how to:

  • Describe how underlying autonomic nervous system states influence physiological, psychological, and behavioural states 

  • Describe how polyvagal theory helps us to understand the connections between physiological, psychological and behavioural states seen in complex conditions such as chronic, persistent pain, adverse childhood experiences, and trauma

  • Establish the factors contributing to autonomic dysregulation and diminished resilience from a biopsychosocial perspective

  • Apply core principles of polyvagal theory and autonomic regulation and resilience for the patient with chronic, persistent pain

  • Identify practices that promote top-down and bottom-up regulation and resilience for the patient with chronic, persistent pain.

  • Review the evidence behind supporting autonomic regulation and resilience in pain care

Benefits

This course enables participants to REFRAME their understanding of how the autonomic nervous system influences biopsychosocial health and well-being. Core concepts of polyvagal theory will be covered  including: 

  • How specific autonomic nervous system activations influence shared physiological, psychological, and behavioral states
  • Neuroception-how subconscious perception of threat or safety activates specific autonomic nervous system “platforms”. Factors that influence these activations will be discussed from a biopsychosocial perspective.

Autonomic dysregulation and the importance of both body-mind regulation and resilience for chronic, persistent pain through the application of top-down and bottom-up processes will be emphasized throughout the course.

In this course, participants will apply their knowledge of the autonomic nervous system to help facilitate body-mind regulation and resilience for biopsychosocial well-being in pain care.

This live, 8-hour course is designed for licensed healthcare professionals—particularly physical and mental health professionals, and integrative health professionals including yoga therapists and meditation teachers 

Evidence-based assessment and treatment techniques will be emphasized. Participants will learn to apply practices for autonomic regulation and resilience in pain care to help promote biopsychosocial well-being
