Step away from trauma responses and move toward responses based on alignment. Transition from fight, flight, and freeze to acknowledge (observe and describe), surrender, and be. Participants will explore the function of anger and fear, and how to use the momentum of intense emotion to achieve goals. Trainer Jelan Agnew will use a trauma-informed and culturally competent lens, with a focus on mindfulness and guided meditation, to help clinicians and clients confront fear and anger.
Participants in this webinar will:
- examine how we manage intense emotions and learn skills to increase our ability to manage our feelings
- learn how trauma may play a role in the way we experience these emotions
- learn how to use the concept of “Observe and Describe” – Where do I feel Fear in my body? Where do I feel Anger in my body?
- use the “momentum of the emotion” to increase effectiveness in achieving goals
