We are excited to bring you Dr. Stephen Porges, the award-winning neuroscientist who proposed the Polyvagal Theory. This theory uses neuroscience and physiopsychology to explain mechanisms in the brain that create symptoms we call psychological disturbances. PVT has stimulated research & treatment emphasizing the importance of biology, the body, and behavioral regulation. It’s not just for our brains, it’s for our hearts!
Can we find a way for men to be BOTH Relational and Masculine? It couldn’t be a more important time for thoughtful, honest, and provocative discussion on what it means to be a man in today’s culture. Perel makes a case that men are both harmed by the existing power structures and perpetuate harm by the codes imposed on them by all of us. In 2018 there are many contentious ideas about masculinity and “the male code” including confusion by men about how to hold themselves out as safe and masculine during this time of #MeToo and Kavanaugh.
“Security” at the border? Relational science professionals have a lot to offer to understand the human rights event that is unfolding on the US-Mexico border. This podcast has been all about promoting security in ourselves and our loved ones, and a primary component to this is access to your caregiver when you are young. It effects our biology, or persistent sense of ourselves and our view of the world. But it works both ways… Stress and fear that is ongoing also has the same persistent thumbprint as well.
Candid and hilarious conversation about how the relational sciences translates to work and parenting, by a listener ready to challenge the premise. Afraid of interacting with your co-workers? All the single listeners, (think Beyonce!) heads up. Learn to use attachment science day to day and delve more deeply into the avoidant end of the spectrum. Fun episode!
