Here in Massachusetts, as we approach the 1 year Anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing, there are a wide range of feelings that adults and children report experiencing. As a Family Therapist/Psychotherapist, this morning LIVE on FOX News Boston during our ‘Ask Dr. Karen’ segment, I shared 4 tips to help adults and children deal with their emotions.
- N = Normalization/Validation
- O = Open Dialogue
- S = Don’t let fear STOP you from your interests
- E = Empowerment
In addition, I explained what psychological triggers are. I also discussed the importance of feeling one’s feelings not ignoring them, while taking action steps to continue to move forward with one’s life.
