A common approach to behavior from our culture is that behavior is evaluated as either “compliant” or “noncompliant”. This prevalent perspective honors and rewards compliant behavior and either ignores or punishes noncompliant behavior. Such approaches often stop us from honoring and respecting the complexity of individual differences and viewing behavior from perspectives of safety and threat. Dr. Porges will take us into his life’s work on “neuroception,” which is our automatic system that detects safety or threat in our relationships and environment. Embedded in his work is the importance of social connectedness as a potent regulatory of behavioral and physiological state. As we evaluate behavior as a response to risk and become curious about the meaning and the sources of threat, we can help individuals find and embrace safety through relationships.
