Safe & Sound Protocol - LEARNING TO FEEL SAFE - YouTube
Learn how the Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP) can help reduce stress behaviors by teaching our nervous system to feel safe.
The SSP can decrease…
• Emotional outbursts
• Feelings of overwhelm
Trauma therapists Robbyn Peters Bennett and Amy Bryant discuss with Dr. Stephen Porges how the SSP supports both children and adults to:
• feel better
• feel more tolerant, and
• find more enjoyment and deeper connection with others
Stephen Porges, PhD developed the SSP based upon 45 years of research on the nervous system and pioneered the POLYVAGAL theory, a concept of the nervous system that explains the driving influence of our physiological state on our behavior and our emotions. He discusses how the SSP can be administered with a sensitivity for individuals who have suffered from varying degrees of trauma, as well as those who struggle with sensory sensitivities, or may be neurodivergent.
