SCA February 2018 Meeting

Polyvagal Theory and Systemic Oppression

Anne Phillips, MA, LMHC

Friday, February 16th, 2018 9am-12pm

This workshop introduces Steven Porges' polyvagal theory, exploring belonging, safety and purpose through both a social engagement lens and a social justice lens. Together we will learn how systemic oppression occurs from a body awareness perspective. This workshop will be taught through lecture, experiential guided movement exercises, small group and dyad interaction, use of imagery, and skill building. 


Skills will include:

*Identifying the developmental, psychological, neurobiological and autonomic nervous system state.

*An understanding of Polyvagal Theory and it's relationship to the interpersonal, intrapersonal and community.

*How systematic oppression occurs from the physiological perspective.

*How to attune to judgmental, angry, hurt, prejudicial behavior/beliefs to eventual emotional regulation and ability to be with difference.  

*Holding the complimentary polarities— the multiplicity; where freedom reigns.
