Foundation Certificate in The Application of The Polyvagal Theory in Counselling & Psychotherapy Workshop Series

Neuroscience and Parenting

This is the seventh part of an eight-part workshop series.

In this workshop we will look at the importance of co-regulation in the parent-child relationship in developing the capacity for self-regulation. How our responses to a child can be experienced by the child’s nervous system as punishing, even when this is not the intent. We will also look at the impact of developmental trauma, particularly neglect, on the developing brain and nervous system.

By completing this workshop, you are taking a significant step towards fulfilling the entry requirements for the Advanced Certificate in the Application of the Polyvagal Theory in Counselling & Psychotherapy.

Presenter

Maggi McAllister-MacGregor

Maggi McAllister-MacGregor has been a practicing Counsellor/Psychotherapist for 20 years and works from a body-based perspective mainly with trauma, anxiety and stress.

Her work is grounded in the Polyvagal Theory which has allowed her to develop her work to encompass both the body and the psyche, and this allows her to integrate her previous work as a body therapist into her current work with clients.

Maggi is also a professional dog trainer where she has applied her understanding of the Polyvagal Theory in dog training to understand dog’s behaviour and help owners understand what is happening in the relationship with their dogs.
