This introductory webinar, intended for psychotherapists, physicians, nutritionists, dietitians, bodyworkers, and other healthcare professionals, offers essential clinically sound information about working at the intersection of the digestive system and nervous system with patients who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other digestive symptoms. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and digestive symptoms indicate dysregulation of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), part of which is in the gut. While the primary symptoms may be physiological, the nature of the dysregulation is likely not purely physiological.
Understanding ANS dysregulation through the lens of Polyvagal Theory will help you to more effectively and efficiently facilitate healing for your patients/clients. This webinar will also address working with stress, anxiety or panic attacks. This webinar provides foundational learning for those less familiar with Polyvagal Theory while also adding knowledge about the digestive system and healing the gut for Somatic Experiencing® Practitioners and others more familiar with Polyvagal Theory.
The learning objectives for this Brain Gut Connection webinar are for attendees to be able to:
- Define Polyvagal Theory and assess the Autonomic Nervous System dysregulation that generates, exacerbates, and/or perpetuates digestive disorders like Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
- List the symptoms of dysregulation.
- Identify and define how stress, anxiety, and trauma relate to digestive disorders through the lens of Polyvagal Theory.
