The Polyvagal Theory, introduced by Dr. Stephen Porges in 1994, is a revolutionary way of understanding the role of the autonomic nervous system in mental health treatment. It is the science of the role of therapeutic, interpersonal connections in the reduction of anxiety and generation of feelings of safety.
