Trauma-Informed Lens Podcast
Episode 62: Heart Rate Variability & Trauma
Posted on November 27, 2018
The first podcast in a series focused on the relationship between heart rate variability and trauma, we introduce the concept and provide some initial insights. In 2015, the Journal of Clinical Child & Adolescent Psychology published a unique special issue dedicated to the idea of implementing physiological measures into the assessment of Clinical Child & Adolescent behavioral health. The issue included several articles demonstrating how this can be done. We start a multi-episode show to share some literature, examples, and issues with using physiology in our assessment and understanding of some of the impacts of exposure to adverse childhood experiences.
Articles for next week’s podcast:
- How does our discussion on the connection between biology and behavior influence your thinking about your work?
- Do you see any way to help craft interventions and programming around this understand? What if technology improved dramatically?
