The Arousal Model represents what occurs when we experience a perceived threat (i.e. physical, emotional, mental) which causes us to move into a Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) response. The 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. Worth It therapists 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.
