Webinar - Relationship-Building & Belonging: Capitalizing on the “Flock” Response, with Dr. Cassie Yackley
Explore the fundamental role that relationships play in the management of stress. Unfortunately, many people have had negative, or even neglectful or abusive, childhood relational experiences that can rob them of a sense of worthiness and safety with others. The behavioral manifestation of this personal experience can be challenging — interactions can feel negative, disengaged, disrespectful, and aggressive. Participants will learn strategies for attunement and relationship-building in these circumstances, including those that can be done through a virtual connection.
