The Neurobiology of Protective Emotions

Timedate16 No upcoming event dates


Workshop Content

After experiencing difficult situations, we all need to receive care and compassion from others.  However, sometimes our protective emotions, such as fear and anger, do not recognize that it is safe to relax and receive that care. 

This workshop will address deeper understanding of the brain’s response to fear and anger before discussing strategies to help find regulation. Once regulated, giving and receiving comfort feels much more possible.

Price: $80

Venue: The SmallVille Hotel, Badaro
