It begins by understand why overstimulation happens, and formulating a plan to handle and respond the right way to it. We are fortunate to share an amazing interview we did with our good friend, and trauma-trained therapist, Jenn Hook, founder of the Replanted Conference. In this interview, she shares practical advice and insight into why stimulation happens, and how you can respond in a way that builds trust and connection!
