CV Meeting 2/8: grounding strategies for triggers
As always, the meeting is going to be Monday 2/8, from 8 to 10 pm, on Columbia's campus, Hamilton 509. Helps to have a map. The weather's gonna be really cold. Expect low 30s with rain or snowfall.
Here's the event description:
In this interactive discussion group we will talk about practical coping strategies such as breathing exercises, sensory stimulation and other techniques that you can employ to make times when you might be triggered more manageable. We'll have an opportunity to practice these skills as well as share your own techniques. We will also discuss how to create a wallet-sized piece of paper that lists what you generally need (water or no touch or cuddles or medication etc.) when you are triggered so you will be able to share this with someone instantly even if you're nonverbal.
Although we will most likely not be discussing anything trigger-y in great detail, there is an implicit trigger warning for this class.
