Follow Up “Spiel” from a Presentation on Play, Stress and Somatic Psychology

Includes a ranty follow up on titrating the challenge of social engagement for those overwhelmed by the social ocean.

In many ways this little spiel would be better described as a rant full of the curse of knowledge, utilizing a gross amount of “insider” language around the polyvagal theory, the guidelines found in Somatic Experiencing® and just general “too much personal opinion.”

And still some may find it interesting on the intersection of a neuroception of sufficient safety and free behavior with the intrusion on free behavior from a neuroception of danger or life threat.
