About the Session

This is a skills-based workshop which will teach you how to help someone quickly de-escalate an overwhelming emotion to return to a more rational, flexible and receptive state of mind. This workshop is especially useful for parents, teachers, administrators, and front-line workers who are confronted with the emotional dysregulation of others and aren't sure what to say or do to help the situation.

This session will be recorded. The recording will be shared with all registered participants and available for 14 days following the presentation.
