Central Nervous System Regulation and Bad News

February 3, 2015

If you are someone who receives very bad news about someone you are very close to like a family member, you may experience feelings of distress or even panic. If you are someone who already has a challenged ability to cope under duress, it can become very difficult to get yourself settled down so you can think with some clarity. In this short clip, Rachel helps show ways to help settle back down out of a panic feeling. If you are someone who has a brain injury, or PTSD, or lives with a moderate amount of pain daily your nervous system may already be vulnerable to easily becoming more upset. This can show up as high agitation or the opposite state, overly shut down or depressed. Either way, helping re-establish better self regulation is key.
