Big Feelings Come and Go is a storybook we hope will be a resource to help families and caregivers have conversations with kids about freeze, flight, and fight and learn some basic self-regulation skills.  We have learned that when kids and adults have the words to name how they are feeling this helps in their healing process.

This storybook was created in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Child Protection. It is another tool to help us become more trauma-informed in our relationships.
