At The Root with Greg Kiper

The Pause that Refreshes

Greg begins the episode clarifying that difficulty with emotions doesn’t necessarily mean we are avoidantly attached; however, it is a symptom of that attachment style. He then goes on to talk about resilience and the development of self-regulation and co-regulation. He explains that learning co-regulation leads to the ability to self-regulate, which is, essentially, learning how to take a pause between a feeling and an action. He ends the episode with some homework to help create space for that pause.
