Do you feel like your emotions feel like a rollercoaster at times!? That's because they are often on the wild ride of emotional dysregulation! In this episode, you will meet Dr. Carrie Jackson, a brilliant child phychologist from San Diago California, who specializes in the ADHD brain!
In this episode, Dr. Carrie dives deeper into what emotional dysregulation looks like, how we experience it, and gives a great technique to use to calm/slow down those rollercoaster of emotions! The technique is called the "temperature skill." This is when you take an ice pack, a really cold wash cloth, or a cold bath/shower to calm your big emotions down. The ice cold against your forehead/body will phycially slow your heart rate down and calm your entire body with your mind and emotions following suit. I'm excited for you to hear what other animal does this to calm itself down! Can you guess?
Dr. Carrie is also a professor at the University of San Diago, as well as a speaker and content creator in our ADHD community! You can find her on Instagram @i.parent.therapist or visit her website www.iparentadhd.com to learn more about her and the resources she has to share!
