“We have a drive to serve and a longing to connect”. ~Jenn Cardoso
In this episode we cover all things nervous system, trauma, self-regulation and resiliency. Jenn takes us through her own personal history, and how she dealt with what came up and who she worked with. She also touches upon the Polyvagal theory and window of tolerance. We speak about how it is possible that our jobs value nervous system dysregulation and the need to be on call at all times. She speaks about how the nervous system guides all of our experiences and behaviors, and what are some signs to look for as well as self-regulation strategies.
