Challenging, triggering, and dysregulating situations are inevitable in the helping profession, especially for those who support children and families exposed to varying levels of trauma and toxic stress. Understanding how our bodies, minds, and emotions automatically respond to challenging situations provides us with not only the insight that allows us to increase our daily wellness, but mindful awareness to strengthen and build safe and secure interpersonal relationships with those we work with.  This training will take a deep dive into identifying and understanding the holistic body-mind-emotional impact of triggers, countertransference, and stress responses, and equip learners with techniques to increase self-regulation in order to give the best care to those we work with.  

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the terms trigger, dysregulation, and countertransference.
  • Identify at least 3 physiological signs of dysregulation as related to the activation of the body’s stress response system.
  • List 3 tools that can increase self-regulation.
