"Today's society can be very overstimulating and can make it hard to focus on our inner experience of emotions. Sometimes we need an opportunity to slow down and process whether our feelings, thoughts and behaviors are helping or getting in the way of where we want to be as - as a person and in relationship with others. Children are equally as overstimulated and can thus struggle turning inward, processing trauma, and regulating emotions.
