In this episode Trauma Report writer Lotus Huyen Vu interviews Deb Dana, a Clinical Social Worker, and the creator of the Rhythm of Regulation therapy program. Sometimes called the Pied Piper of the Polyvagal Theory, Dana adapted the theory into a system for clinical practice. She is the author of three books on The Polyvagal Theory clinical applications, including “The Polyvagal Theory in Therapy: Engaging the Rhythm of Regulation”. The polyvagal theory was founded by Stephen Porges, a researcher on physiology who uses the theory to establish the psychological foundation for the understanding of trauma. This comprehensive theory establishes a scientific basis for the understanding of trauma in human physiology.
