in Stress by

In this short video I provide an introduction to the fight or flight response, which Mike and I have called your emotional style. I discuss two emotional styles that people display when they’re feeling distressed or upset. Your emotional style depends on whether you are instinctively a fight or flight response person. This is the dominant way in which you process emotion in your body. When you and your partner are fully aware of how you react to events in your life – such as, your internal thoughts, unmet expectations, things you see, touch, or smell, and the way you are spoken to – you will have begun the journey from disconnection to connection with your partner.
