This is the INTERACTIVE version of the Official Polyvagal Poster. If you or your clients have a subscription to the Restorative Practices Deep Learning platform, point your phone at any neural platform on the poster, and restorative practices that address that specific neural platform will present. Ideal for working interactively with clients. Learn how to use the poster with the learning platform here.
PLEASE NOTE: 1) You will need to download a QR code reader onto your phone. These can be found in either the Apple store, or the Android store, and are generally free. 2) The poster does not come with a membership to the learning platform.
We developed this poster over 9 months of working closely with Dr. Stephen Porges PhD to provide the viewer with a global understanding of the central aspects of the theory in a single view. This came about through necessity, as we had been studying the theory for about 10 years, and needed to be able to explain it to clients holistically and quickly. The Polyvagal Theory re-writes our understanding of the relationship between the Autonomic Nervous System and behavior. When we (and our clients) are able to read and feel this living map, we can incorporate its many insights into our understanding of self and others.
Developed in partnership with Dr. Stephen Porges, PhD, Developer of the Polyvagal Theory, and consultation with Deb Dana, LCSW, the poster is conceptually and neuro-anatomically accurate.
The poster is unframed. It is:
• printed on high-quality paper, with a partly glossy, partly matte finish
• 24 x 36 inches
• 10 mil (0.25 mm) thick paper
