Exercises to Promote Safety and Connection
11/19/21, 11:00 am -12:15 pm EST
This session will provide the opportunity to learn and practice 3 - 4 exercises based on the neuroscience of resilience and focused on the polyvagal theory. We will briefly touch on why each exercise can create a sense of safety and connection, and then practice trauma informed approaches.
