DO YOU HAVE A LOVED ONE WHO SUFFERS FROM EMOTIONAL INSTABILITY?
“I teach families to respond effectively to their sensitive loved ones to create a more trusting, connected and calmer relationship.”
— Corrine Stoewsand
What is Emotional Dysregulation?
It is a state in which we feel vulnerable and experience intense emotional reactions that we may perceive as being out of control. If emotional dysregulation is frequent and chronic it can effect one’s ability to sustain valued activities, reach goals, and maintain relationships with others.
Those who are closest to someone with emotional dysregulation also suffer. When one is emotionally vulnerable and dysregulated, impulsive behaviors may arise, such as verbal attacks, excessive spending, addictions and can even physical injury to self or others.
WE CAN ALL SUFFER EMOTIONAL DYSREGULATION
A global pandemic, physical distancing and illness can result in isolation and loneliness, or conflict and overcrowding. Family suffering increases.
How are families affected by Emotional Dysregulation?
If one person in the family experiences intense emotional pain, it can be unsettling for the whole family. Many families have only two strategies to regulate their emotions: denial or drama. Responses based on denial and/or drama can make a bad situation even worse.
Hoping to manage the intense emotions of a loved one—or even our own—we sometimes try to ignore, suppress, or control our emotions. On the other hand, we might impulsively and intensively act out our reaction. Neither of these methods are very effective—and they often escalate the situation. However, if we respond to emotions with skillful means and effecive communication, then it is more likely that everyone moves toward being more grounded and centered.
