The Arousal Model represents what occurs when we experience a perceived threat (i.e. physical, emotional, mental) and move into a sympathetic nervous system response. The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is responsible for the “fight or flight” response which can tighten our bodies and make us feel on guard. The goal is to be in the window of tolerance in order to operate in a emotionally regulated calm, cool, collected, and connected state. Jennifer and Rebecca guide clients through many exercises of mindfulness, grounding, breathing, and positive awareness so that clients can learn to operate more frequently within the window of tolerance.
