Quick Bytes+: Establishing External and Internal Base Camp: Healthy Achievement Needs Connection, Care and Contemplation

October 18, 2023 | 12:00pm - 1:30pm

In this interactive presentation, participants will develop an understanding of the emotional regulation systems based on the work of Dan Siegel, Paul Gilbert and Rick Hanson. We will discuss how our neglect of one specific neural system, dubbed the “mammalian caregiving system,'' is at the root of much of our unmanaged stress and distress. Informed by this functional understanding of the nervous system, we will identify and practice the skills that help us to: self-soothe when experiencing failure and loss, cultivate courage to face life’s challenges, and find a sense of meaning and fulfillment throughout life.
