Publisher's Summary

A collection of groundbreaking research by a leading figure in neuroscience.

This book compiles, for the first time, Stephen W. Porges's decades of research. A leading expert in developmental psychophysiology and developmental behavioral neuroscience, Porges is the mind behind the groundbreaking Polyvagal Theory, which has startling implications for the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, and autism. 

Adopted by clinicians around the world, the Polyvagal Theory has provided exciting new insights into the way our autonomic nervous system unconsciously mediates social engagement, trust, and intimacy.

If only the narration were better...

I can't finish this book. I love Stephen Porges' work and highly respect the changes he's making in the field. He's actually really fun to listen to, but he did not narrate this and the narration has turned me off from being able to finish this.
