JUNE COUPON CODE:
Children who have experienced early childhood abuse, profound neglect, or other traumas often have difficulty regulating their emotions and behaviors. This is the result of the negative effects of prolonged or reoccurring arousal of the “fight, flight, or freeze response.”
Touch is the first sense to develop in utero. While being carried by our mother, we are regulated by her heartbeat, movement, voice, and mood. After birth, a baby does not even know they are separate from the mother for many months. A baby is completely dependent on their primary caregiver(s) to relieve distress and discomfort. This is the formative time for the development of co-regulation and self-regulation skills. And it is all pre-verbal – before the development of language and thought. It is happening in the limbic system, the “emotional” part of the brain. READ MORE
In this webinar, C.A.S.E. therapist Penny Zimmerman will introduce massage, relaxation, sensory, and mindfulness techniques parents can easily put to use at home to help their child lay down new pathways in the brain and foster physiological attachment. The webinar will include a combination of lecture, hands-on practice, and Q/A. Attending with a friend or partner is encouraged, but not required.
