After completing the workshop you will be able to:
have a deeper understanding of Polyvagal Theory and how it shows up in practice
explore complexity and adaptability of autonomic responses
recognise common traumatic responses in terms of polyvagal reaction
recognise a range of autonomic reactions in different contexts
encourage safe neurological flexibility for yourself and others
consider applications in your own field of work
Who Should Attend?
The workshop is aimed at healthcare professionals, coaches, counsellors and therapists who want to begin to explore and work with polyvagal theory.
Ideally you will have already done Part 1. You must already know the basics of polyvagal as Part 2 will not be covering the basics like the Ladder – the three levels – neurocpetion / coregulation / hierarchy etc.
NOTE - If your organisation is interested in having Suzanne present face-face to your team as a private workshop, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Date and Time
This workshop will be held on:
Online - 9 April, 9am - 12.30pm
Whilst both sessions cover the same overall topic, the online session is an introduction, as it is half the time as we recognise zoom fatigue and that roleplay and experiential application is not as possible. Therefore the face to face session will be a deeper and more experiential workshop working more deeply with the models shared

What Past Participants Said
I thoroughly enjoyed Suzanne as a speaker and educator. She spoke from both her head and heart.
I used some of the practical tips the very next day with clients, felt great to be able to jump straight in.
It was informing, clearly presented and easy to understand. I came away with improved skill base and helpful ideas to use in the therapy room. A great presenter!
I enjoyed the mixture of theory and practical strategies and tools. I like having research based ideas and suggestions that I could take into my practice immediately.
