301 - Safe and Sound

How Your Voice Can Contribute to Healing Trauma

Can the way we use our voice actually help change a person’s nervous system? Polyvagal Theory provides a neurologically based understanding of how human vocalizations and the way we say what we say can support mental and physical health. Discover how the Safe and Sound Protocol promotes social engagement and safety in therapy. In this workshop, you’ll explore: 

  • How trauma “re-tunes” the auditory system in trauma survivors 
  • How to apply the specific features of vocalizations and vocal music that can help create a sense of calm and safety for clients 
  • How to utilize the voice to support the regulation of clients’ nervous systems and support healing

Stephen Porges, PhD, is Distinguished University Scientist at Indiana University and founding director of the Traumatic Stress Research Consortium within the Kinsey Institute. He is the author of The Polyvagal Theory: Neurophysiological foundations of Emotions, Attachment, Communication, and Self-regulation.

Note: This workshop is live.
