Polyvagal Parenting For Mothers in Recovery


Megan Briggs, MA, MT-BC, LPC (Read Bio)


Abstract: Parenting is impacted by many internal and external factors, including trauma and stress. How parents and their children respond to stress impacts the relationship between them, interaction, and the development of the child. It is important for providers to understand the polyvagal theory, which explains stress responses in relation to the body’s reaction to stressful events. This training will teach providers about the polyvagal theory’s most important points, stress response styles, and interventions to help parents regulate and co-regulate with their children. Trauma-focused interventions will be highlighted throughout the learning experience.
