Hidden Resilience:

Action and a Drive for Justice

Is learned when:

  • People are not protected.

  • People come from experiences where the safest person in the room is the most violent person in the room because they are the only one not getting hurt. 

The drive behind the behavior:

Feeling cheated, treated unfairly, sad, worried, or afraid.

Steps to take to meet those needs:

  1. Breathe – Take slow deep breaths, it will help them do the same.  It will change the atmosphere in the room.

  2. Use the safety script for limit setting.  

  3. Replace “Calm down” with “How can I help you feel safe?”
