Emotional Disregulation

Emotional Disregulation iconEmotional Disregulation Therapy in Houston, TX

Emotional disregulation is when emotions are experienced at such an extreme level that they feel intolerable.  Also, the emotions experienced in some situations can be inappropriate for the situation.  For example, some people feel nothing when facing imminent, extreme danger. Another example is when someone reacts with complete rage at a perceived slight such as someone cutting ahead of them in a line, causing them to react with yelling and cursing, and, for some, even to the extreme of violence. The goal is to learn how to modulate and tolerate all negative and positive emotions.
