The Polyvagal Theory has become a popular theory applied to treating complex trauma. From an essential perspective, the polyvagal approach highlights the adaptive function of the Autonomic Nervous System and its impact on the physiological state. According to Dr. Stephen Porges’s extensive research on the vagus nerve, behavior is influenced primarily by an innate survival desire which is highly dependent on social relationships and, when adaptive, supports “health, growth, restoration.” Trauma can distort physiological responses resulting in increased distress and the inability to assess life threats accurately. His research has enhanced and reinforced analysis qualitatively and quantitively underscoring the somatic relationship between trauma and trauma processing.
