Safe and Sound Protocol

Safe and Sound Protocol



 The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is an evidence-based listening therapy designed to reduce sound sensitivities and improve auditory processing, behavioral state regulation, and social engagement behaviors through filtered music. As a practical application of Polyvagal Theory, the SSP acts as a non-invasive, acoustic vagal nerve stimulator, helping to re-tune the nervous system to better support connection, collaboration and resilience.


The SSP involves listening to specially filtered music through headphones alongside a provider, in-person or remotely. Suitable for children and adults, the SSP has demonstrated benefits for individuals with trauma, anxiety, sensory processing differences and more.


Highlights of the SSP:

● A five-hour auditory intervention developed and patented by Dr. Stephen Porges, author of the Polyvagal Theory.

● Designed to reduce sound sensitivity, and improve auditory processing and behavioral state regulation.

● Activates the client’s social engagement system, helping to accelerate and enhance therapeutic outcomes.

● Supports physiological state regulation, allowing for greater resilience
