The Science of Safety
The Polyvagal Theory
Or, The Science of Safety
The Polvyagal Theory is the landmark theoretical work of Dr. Stephen Porges, PhD, the world's leading expert on the relationship between the Autonomic Nervous System and behavior. The film above will take you deeply into the theory, which you can conceptualize as a deep map of the human nervous sytem. In the words of Deb Dana, LCSW, author of the marvelous book The Polyvagal Theory in Therapy, "When I teach Polyvagal Theory, I tell my clients that they are learning about the science of safety–the science of feeling safe enough to fall in love with life and take the risks of living."
