Emotion Regulation Online Group
When we think we are being threatened in some way, the oldest part of our brain, the amygdala, send a message to our body to get ready to fight or run. This is known as our "fight or flight" response, and it makes our heart beat fast, our muscles tense up, etc. It prepares the body to react before we can think about what we're doing. The newest part of our brain, the prefrontal cortex, is our "brake system." It's the part of our brain that says, "Wait, if you do this, what might happen? Will you regret it?" The prefrontal cortex calms us down and gives us time to make responsible choices.
The purpose of the emotion regulation group is to train your prefrontal cortex, your brake system, to kick into gear immediately after your amygdala is triggered to fight or run, so that you can avoid doing something that is damaging to yourself or others. The more you practice using your emotion regulation tools, the more control you will have over your emotions!

is an important aspect of resilience
As a tree blows in the wind, and as the wind becomes stronger blowing the tree, the tree will bend to accommodate the wind or else it will break. When the wind stops, the tree resumes its original upright state. This elasticity is an important aspect of resilience: A stressor disrupts a person’s normal state of functioning, but when the stressor passes, the person eventually resumes his or her normal or pre-stressor level of functioning. Some people are slow to resume normal functioning but are still resilient relative to a person who never recovers (Lepore & Revenson).
