Trauma occurs when a choice is taken away from us. As humans, we need choice to self regulate, feel safe, create coping strategies and thrive. Self-regulation is essential for our sense of agency, positive self-esteem and wellbeing. We find equilibrium through the gentle rhythms of eye contact, smiling, crying, talking, laughing, hugging and unconsciously regulating the breath.
