Free webinar for ASLI members: “First Aid for Feelings” by Thora Rain from The Helpful Clinic
4th June 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
You might have first aid kit at home, packed with plasters, paracetamol, bandages and so on. A First Aid Kit for Feelings works in exactly the same way, but it’s packed with tools, tips and things that help you respond to intense emotions and symptoms.
When you are in a heightened state, the rational and resourceful part of your brain shuts down. This impairs your thinking and leads to unhelpful decisions and difficult feelings. Having a pre-prepared First Aid Kit for Feelings helps you respond to difficult feelings in a more helpful way.
It’s made up of things that are important to you, like movies and photos, as well as strategies to help you reduce the intensity and minimise the risk of you responding to your emotions, symptoms and others in a way that might be destructive or damaging.
Questions for you to think about:
How do you know you are struggling?
What thoughts, feelings and behaviour do you do when you are struggling?
