Mindful Play

BY DEE WAGNER
@ VOL 28 ON FEB 21, 2016

Dee Wagner joins us to discuss mindful play and how it may be used in place of the third reaction style that follows the two known reactions "fight" & "flight"... The third is "shutdown" and is a reposnse when neither 'fight' not 'flight' are an option... Mindful play has its roots in the polyvagal theory and Dee walks us through responses, the nexus of her mindful play approach, and peppers it all with her own personal story.
