Co-regulation as a Superpower: | Family Ties Monthly Gathering and Teen TEA
Our Family Ties Program hosts Co-regulation as a Superpower: Creating Internal Safety. Families interested in our Family Ties Program, as well as visitors wishing to participate in this program designed to improve communications, behavior, and increase healthy interactions are welcome!
About Co-regulation as a Superpower:
Effectively reducing or preventing poor outcomes linked to early childhood trauma, dysfunction, or instability requires a holistic approach that empowers parents and caregivers. The inability to create felt safety results in emotional dysregulation and disruption which in turn impacts children's behavior, communications, and level of healthy interactions. This workshop will help parents and caregivers understand the effects and expressions of trauma, while building the skills to help your child or children find emotional safety.
In this program, we will:
1. Briefly review the impact of early childhood trauma, highlighting signs and symptoms related to cognitive and emotional impairment.
2. Define dysregulation and build an understanding of the connection between thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and triggers.
3. Learn co-regulation techniques and grounding strategies to improve behavior, communication, and healthy interactions.
