Safety and Neuroception in the Therapeutic Setting
with John Wilks
This webinar is the second in our three part series on the work of Dr. Stephen Porges with footage of two presentations on the Polyvagal Theory.
John Wilks examines the aspect of safety in the context of manual therapy. Why is creating safety so important in the therapeutic setting and how can we ensure our clients feel safe? This presentation looks at how our bodies perceive threat and how our ‘new’ vagus needs safety in order to build trust and relationship which are a prerequisite for a favourable response to therapeutic intervention.
