Hack Your Brain to Feel Better: Everyday Regulation for Hard Times

In this session, participants will learn about brain-science based “bottom-up” and “top-down” regulation strategies, as well as coping skills that they can use themselves and teach others. Some of the strategies and skills presented come from Dialectical Behavior Therapy, the Neurosequential Model of Education, and Trust-Based Relational Intervention. All of these skills and strategies can help people feel better and move from crisis to stabilization. Come ready to participate and have fun!

Mind Matters at Home, presented by Ascension Seton, brings mental health experts and advocates straight into your home to share valuable information and tools for deepening our community’s understanding and managing of mental health during the challenging situation caused by the coronavirus.
