Many people feel like wild animals in captivity. Walking the perimeters of confinement, feeling the frustration of relationships mediated by technology and yearning for their lives past. Fear, anxiety and frustration are frequently present for us as therapists and our clients alike. Many of us experience a sense of groundlessness as we are called upon by our clients to help contain fear, loss, and dysregulation in the face of an invisible and lethal threat.
Our work is to build resilience,
foster stress reduction and
support psychological safety.
This short workshop is offered as a public service to support emotional regulation through mindful self-care.
At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
- Identify signs of stress and dysregulation
- Identify skills for emotional and physiological regulation
- Describe strategies for psychological safety
This workshop is offered via Zoom.
Access will be provided to those who register.
