This presentation and discussion will cover a basic rundown of how the nervous system is involved in our crisis response to perceived danger. We’ll discuss herbs and strategies to widen our “window of tolerance” so that we can participate in better responses to crisis situations like deescalation, rather than calling the police or otherwise endangering people with institutionalization.
Participants will be invited to answer interactive questions and consider their past crisis experiences and how they responded, as well as how they would prefer to respond. This information does not need to be shared with the group, there will simply be time to reflect on these things.
