Affect Regulation Toolbox
Mastery and maintenance of self-regulation skills are impeded by the individual's habitual knee-jerk response to frustration, perceived threats, or environmental stressors. In this intermediate workshop, participants will be introduced to the "Affect Regulation Tool Box," a set of therapeutic tools that incorporates hypnosis, cognitive behavioral approaches and mindfulness. There will be an emphasis on training patients to identify the start of an overreactive response and to take immediate interruptive breaks to self-regulate with effective affect regulation interventions.
