The role of strengthening emotion regulation skills falls to the individual therapist.

The facilitator will share some top tips on managing  the common pitfalls in upregulating or downregulating each emotion to fit the facts.  Delegates will be shown how to troubleshoot to ensure the client has genuinely grasped the skill.
