Karena Keyward - PVT in Online Psych Class and Therapy /ep56 show notes

There are a handful of individuals that really intrigue me and I feel compelled to speak with and learn more from. And Karena Heyward is one of those individuals. She is teaching psychology online and incorporating the polyvagal theory into her classwork and her online therapy practice with hopes of using it in her research and scholarship as well. She's not only the definition of a #traumanerd and a #polyvagalnerd, but she's also a Super Fan to put it mildly. Oh and she also calls herself a "drama-trauma nerd" because she was on the high school stage crew. I'm extremely happy to present to you my chat with Karena Heyward. We talk about some polyvagal implications in teaching online and off as well as providing therapy online.

Find her on Instagram -

If you're as much of a polyvagal and trauma nerd as Karena and I are, you might be interested in joining the Polyvagal Patrons where I have a whole separate podcast for only $5/mo. And Karena just so happens to be one of those Polyvagal Patrons.

Karena, thank you so much for joining me. I know you're listening to this and I really want you to know how much you're appreciated. I look forward to talking with you again!
