In this comprehensive interview, Scaer literally covers the entire Trauma Spectrum (incidentally, that’s also the name of his most recent book): from the biological nature of trauma to the acute physical, emotional psychological symptoms it creates and on into the medical issues and disorders that are so often part of trauma’s clinical picture. Following Scaer’s extended interview, trauma’s adopted son, Stephen Porges, gives us a detailed description of his polyvagal theory; how it relates to the experience of stress and resultant responses-fight/flight freeze; and its applicability for better outcomes in trauma treatment.
- Describe the nature of traumatic memories
- Recognize the physiology of trauma
- Describe how trauma is linked to not only psychological disorders, but to a host of physical/medical problems
- Identify the polyvagal theory in terms of hierarchy: ventral vagal response; sympathetic response and dorsal vagal response
- Describe the social engagement system

Robert Scaer received his B.A. in Psychology, and his M.D. degree at the University of Rochester. He is Board Certified in Neurology, and has been in practice for 39 years, twenty of those as Medical Director of Rehabilitation Services at the Mapleton Centre in Boulder, Colorado. His primary areas of interest and expertise have been in the fields of brain injury and chronic pain and, more recently, in the study of traumatic stress and its role in all mental illness, as well as in physical symptoms and many chronic diseases. He has lectured extensively on these topics, and has published several articles on the whiplash syndrome and other somatic syndromes of traumatic stress. His first book, The Body Bears the Burden: Trauma, Dissociation and Disease, presents a new theory of dissociation and its role in many diseases. A second book, The Trauma Spectrum: Hidden Wounds and Human Healing, released in 2005, explores the insidious spectrum of culturally-based trauma that shapes our lives, and how transformation and healing may still take place. He is currently retired from clinical medical practice, and continues to pursue a career in writing and lecturing.
