Over the years we have become aware that there has been some confusion as to how and why Emotion Coaching UK (ECUK) utilises Stephen Porges' polyvagal theory and Dan Siegel's hand model of the brain. Dr, Louise Gilbert has researched and written a critical paper on current understanding of the triune brain, polyvagal theory and the hand model of the brain. Dr. Gilbert also clearly sets out how these concepts relate to Emotion Coaching as part of the ECUK framework. You can find the paper on the Resources>Research page of the website or via this download.
