Staying Connected When Emotions Run High

Staying Connected When Emotions Run High is a set of Five Key Strategies empowering others to be a resource to a person in distress.  Through learning about the typical relationship patterns, “fear and worry dances”, which instinctively activate between closely connected humans in distress, Staying Connected highlights alternative strategies for a “Good Enough Dance”, which is “contagious with calm” 

Safety planning “like a fire drill” is another key component of the intervention.  A DVD highlights the dances and strategies with associated interactive activities.
