Stephen Porges Polyvagal theory is one of the most important developments in human neurobiology. It provides a comprehensive overview of how our autonomic nervous system is shaped by early relationships and with ongoing life experiences.

Helping clients understand the physiology behind trauma responses such as 'fight or flight' and 'freeze or collapse' can set the stage for introducing the concept of self-regulation and co-regulation. If relationships are experienced as dangerous, it is imperative the therapist provides a safe place of co-regulation to begin the process of autonomic reorganisation. 

The Polyvagal Theory and Trauma Mental Health Poster explains the concept of Polyvagal Theory and the three survival responses designed to meet the human needs of connection and survival. Tap into visual infographics to describe the three autonomic states including the impact on one's physiology.


Our posters are 16.5 x 23.4 inches (420mm x 594mm) and are printed on 170gsm quality paper. Our large posters are sent via a mailing tube (picture frame is not included). 

Showing your client, a colorful, visual prompt helps to consolidate important therapy teachings. and fosters thought about behavioral responses between therapy sessions. 

Clients may require ongoing practice between sessions to consolidate therapy gains and improve their ability to regulate when stressed or 'triggered'. This poster pairs well with our client handout bundle:
