Body Language and Emotional Regulation to reduce Fight and Flight Hormones

The presentation will focus on understanding your temperament/personality especially what it was before going into service and the different conditioned responses which develop in stressful situations, understanding the Neural Pathways of Fight or Flight and how your temperament, breathing and body language can escalate anxiety and panic attacks. I will cover the body language and breathing techniques to help lower adrenaline and also to understand their personalities at a deeper level to rediscover their temperament and the things they used to love before going into service. This all helps to transition back into life with purpose which helps to build a passion moving forward . I like to involve the whole family so everyone in the house can understand the techniques and goals we teach so if family members can be encouraged to watch at the same time it will help immensely in helping the home become emotionally stable. Normalising and understanding all the emotions experienced with PTSD also helps takes the stigma away and helps bring everyone together on a non judgemental page. Acceptance, moving forward with a vision and faith for the future ahead.
