Why do some people gravitate toward “danger” or even bond with others they may not even like? How can trauma prevent our body from accessing its healing resources? Why do specific sounds have a calming effect? Dr. Stephen Porges, author of Polyvagal Theory and creator of the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP), answers these questions and more on this latest episode of the Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown podcast.

In this engaging conversation with hosts Mayim Bialik and Jonathan Cohen, Dr. Porges explores the role of the vagus nerve and it influences our emotional safety in therapy. They also discuss relationship dynamics and how they may change through generations, as well as the connection between trauma and obesity, why neurodivergent individuals may find it challenging to connect with others, and how insights from vagus nerve research can help improve institutions, such as prisons, hospitals and schools.

Watch or listen to this episode above! You’ll gain insights into foundational vagal research, strategies for fostering a safe therapeutic environment, and valuable perspectives that can help providers enrich their practice and promote healing in their clients.
