DISCERNMENT PROCESS (SENSATIONS, IMAGES, FEELINGS, THOUGHTS)
CURIOSITY, OPENESS, ACCEPTANCE, LOVE (MINDSIGHT APPROACH)
SECURE ATTACHEMENT (FEELING FELT)
GOOD PARENTING (NON-JUDGMENT & CLARITY)
Chronic STRESS challenges FAMILIES nowadays. One significant goal is to feel mastery in regulating EMOTIONS. Families who are in a habit of reacting instead of responding emotionally to each other remain STUCK in old thinking and behavior patterns that activate the "FIGHT/FLIGHT/FREEZE" stress response. When the stress response is triggered, focus is unattainable and the present experience is often controlled by ANGER, FEAR, and AVOIDANCE.
