Manage Your EmotionsSafety Plan
Do you have things or people that “trigger” negative thinking, emotions or behavior? A safety plan can help you better manage those difficult emotions.
Our clients and staff create personal safety plans. A good safety plan identifies activities that can be used anytime, anywhere, without embarrassment. Activities should be safe, effective, and self-soothing.
Give yourself at least five immediate steps that you can take when you find yourself in a challenging, stressful or dangerous situation. Some of the activities can involve others or leaving the space you are in (for example, calling a friend or taking a walk). At least two should be things you can do on your own and without leaving the space you are in (for example, deep breathing or squeezing a stress ball).
The safety plan is written
The following are examples:
Take a deep breath Use positive self-talk
Take a walk Think about being in a safe place
Talk to a friend Listen to music
Leave the room Write or draw
