The Love Code provides a metaphor to explore the neural mechanisms underlying how and why we attach, bond, fall in love and seek out safe and trusted others in an unsafe world. This presentation will explore the body's need for intimate engagement and social bonding from an adaptive perspective. Within the theoretical context of the Polyvagal Theory, the presentation will illustrate how specific features in our social environment may trigger neurophysiological systems, through a process of “neuroception” that enables us either to be fearful and disengage or to feel safe and enter enduring intimate relations.

OBJECTIVES

Demonstrate a foundational understanding of the Polyvagal Theory.
Discuss how deficits in the regulation of the social engagement system are core features of several psychiatric disorders.


ABOUT STEPHEN W. PORGES, Ph.D.

Stephen Porges, Ph.D., is Principal Researcher in Behavioral Neuroscience at Research Triangle Institute (RTI) International in North Carolina. He is former President of the Federation of Behavioral, Psychological, and Cognitive Sciences and former President of the society for Psychophysiological Research. He is the originator of the Polyvagal Theory, which has stimulated research and treatments in several psychiatric disorders and provides a theoretical perspective to study and to treat stress and trauma. The Polyvagal Theory provides a new conceptualization of the autonomic nervous system that emphasizes how an understanding of neurophysiological mechanisms and phylogenetic shifts in the neural regulation of the heart leads to insights into causes and treatments of mental and physical illness. The Polyvagal Theory provides a plausible explanation of several features that are compromised during stress and observed in several psychiatric disorders. Professor Porges has published approximately 200 peer-reviewed articles and has authored The Polyvagal Theory: Neurophysiological Foundations of Emotions, Attachment, Communication, and Self-Regulation (Norton, 2011).
