Comments Off on What Is The Safe And Sound Protocol?

The Safe and Sound Protocol is an auditory intervention program designed to reduce stress and sensitivity to auditory sensitivity while enhancing a person’s overall social engagement and resilience. The five hour program was created by Dr. Stephen Porges and is based on his Polyvagal theory. It seeks to engender a calm emotional and physiological state in which a patient can improve their communication with the therapist leading to a better overall therapeutic outcome.

As a research-based therapy, the protocol has shown significant results after its five hour application and has been shown to help in the following areas:

• Emotional and social interaction issues
• Auditory sensitivity to loud or annoying sounds
• Anxiety and other trauma-related issues
• Inattention and hyperactivity
• Stress factors that impact on successful social engagement

According to the protocol, emotional and physiological states are closely bound up with how a person approaches a given situation. When they feel they are in control they become more open to therapy and this improves therapeutic outcomes.
