About the event


“What happens when we flip our lid” 

When our brain is working efficiently both the upper and mid brain are communicating effectively. Information comes in and is processed logically, but what happens if someone is suffering from overload, chronic stress or emotional distress? This workshop with A Space 2 Be, covers information based on the Hand Model of the Brain practice, exploring what effect stress has on the brain and how someone receives information during a time of flipping their lid.  

You will understand why behaviours may change, what parts of the brain shut down or become exhilarated and how this model can support your understanding of these changes in the brain.  You will be shown how to explain this to someone else using the hand model and given handouts to support you with this practice.
