Take home point: how do you respond when you are outside the window of tolerance? How can you help others return to their window of tolerance?
Preparation for seminar:
“How childhood trauma affects health across the lifetime” by Nadine Burke Harris. https://youtu.be/95ovIJ3dsNk
Do: Assess your ACE score: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2015/03/02/387007941/take-the-ace-quiz-and-learn-what-it-does-and-doesnt-mean (I will privately collect the scores and share the range and mean during seminar time)
Consider: What helps you stay in your window of tolerance?? Design for yourself a daily self-care plan and do it. Incorporate physical, spiritual, cognitive and emotional self-care (to be shared during seminar)
Somatic awareness meditation (at the start and end of seminar)
-Window of Tolerance (review)
