Emotional dysregulation makes it difficult to have satisfying relationships and to form and maintain a positive sense of self. In this presentation Joan will provide a neurobiologically based understanding of emotional regulation and dysregulation. Using numerous clinical examples she will talk about ways therapists can help clients learn to more effectively regulate their emotions. The concepts will be relevant for all clinicians regardless of their practice setting.

Learning Goals:

  1. Develop an understanding of the relationship between the capacity for emotional regulation, secure attachment, emotional well-being.
  2. Develop an understanding of how traumatic experiences disrupt the ability to effectively regulate emotion.
  3. Develop an understanding of the principles of trauma treatment and interventions that restore the capacity for emotional regulation.
