Event Description

Co-regulation is a key component in today's popular intervention models such as Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS), Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI), Somatic Experiencing (SE), and more. Our ability to effectively provide this co-regulation takes practice. Mindfulness is a state of being: in which we are present, connected, and in full awareness of what is going on both inside ourselves and all around. With regular practice, it becomes easier to regulate our own emotions and levels of activation in the presence of others who are activated.

Key outcomes:
-Begin to develop a mindfulness practice, including meditation and breathing exercises, for use at home or at work to support emotional regulation and mental health
-Enhance understanding of nervous system activation, somatic experiences of emotions, and co-regulation which may be the result of unresolved trauma and apply this knowledge to support healing
-Use mindful awareness in the context of crisis intervention techniques to effectively de-escalate situations and strengthen problem-solving with others
