If you aren’t familiar with polyvagal theory, Michelle Gaines is breaking it down for you in today’s episode. Polyvagal theory is not evidence based, but a set of theoretical principles. It relates to our emotional regulation, social connection, and fear response. In this discussion, we dive into what polyvagal theory is and how it can be applied to everyday interactions with ourselves, our children, and others. Michelle discusses fascinating topics such as how we experience safety and stress in our bodies and how we experience connection or disconnection.   Michelle is a mother of two, Certified Conscious Parenting Coach, longtime educator, and founder of a trauma-informed education non-profit.
