In Deb Dana’s third book on Polyvagal Theory, she provides therapists with a grab bag of polyvagal-informed exercises for their clients, to use both within and between sessions.

These exercises included in Polyvagal Exercises for Therapists and Clients offer readily understandable explanations of the ways the autonomic nervous system directs daily living.

They use the principles of polyvagal theory to guide clients to safely connect to their autonomic responses and navigate daily experiences in new ways.

The exercises are designed to be introduced over time in a variety of clinical sessions with accompanying exercises appropriate for use by clients between sessions to enhance the therapeutic change process.
