Polyvagal Theory Dr Stephen Porges

Posted on December 1, 2017 by Therapist Nicki

I have been studying the Polyvagal Theory by Dr Stephen Porges since 2013. With the following idea from Albert Einstein in mind – if you can’t explain it simply you have not understood enough – I created this short animation for you.

This video is a brief introduction to the Polyvagal Theory: Neurophysiological Foundations of Emotions, Attachment, Communication, Co and Self-regulation. It explains how the Polyvagal Theory relates to the Somatic Consent Engagement System.

I shared this video with Dr Porges and ask for his input to see if this is a clear representation of the Polyvagal Theory. I am grateful for the response I received from him — “a beautiful presentation.”

His only modification was to change the term from ‘freeze’, which can also involve sympathetic activation, to ‘total death feigning, collapse and behavioural shutdown’ to emphasise the total shift in physiological state that is also metabolically conservative.

Thank you Dr Porges for your response and the work you share with the world.
