Bio: Deb Dana is an international expert in Polyvagal Theory. She is a consultant to the Traumatic Stress Research Consortium in the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University.
Polyvagal Theory is a neurophysiological framework for understanding the human autonomic nervous system and how it influences our sense of safety and ability for connection. It was developed by Dr Stephen Porges, a Distinguished University Scientist at the Kinsey Institute.
A licensed social worker, trainer and lecturer, Dana is the international leader in translating Polyvagal Theory into practice. She has a particular focus on helping those who have experienced complex trauma.
To help disseminate the application of Polyvagal Theory into clinical practice, Dana developed the Rhythm of Regulation training series, offering a module sequence from foundation to advanced level. She regularly travels internationally to offer this training.
Dana writes for a range of publications and has been interviewed many times for podcasts and radio. Her engaging summary of Polyvagal Theory is that it is the science of feeling safe enough to fall in love with life and take the risks of living.
