  1. Thanks for a wonderful overview and illustration of your attachment work, as it relates to chronic pain! My question is about the exercise: Would you change your hand position/breathing if you were focusing on the pain in the abdomen or other part of your body? Or is the exercise primarily to feel connection? Thank you!

    Thank you so much for the presentation. I have been facilitating a chronic pain support group and actually had purchased Reversing Chronic Pain and have been using some of the breathing exercises with them. I enjoyed hearing you in person.

    Thanks so much to both Maggie and Rich. I am a brand new therapist just out of grad school. I have been watching the networker video presentations for about a year and I cannot tell you how incredibly helpful they have been to my development as a therapist. Maggie, I am just beginning to learn more about attachment theory and the role it can (and undoubtedly will) play in my own practice. Thank you for taking time to share your experiences and expertise!

  4. Connie Ortiz says:

    Thank you so much for an excellent presentation. I will be checking out the resources provided and look forward to passing them on to my colleagues.

  5. Laura J Bender says:

    Thank you for showing how to use polyvagal theory to structure the course of therapy and create positive change. This approach answers the question of how to use the situation that created chronic pain as a way to heal from it. Exciting for me.
