Learning to Co-Regulate Your Partner

The experience of trauma can destabilize the brain, creating "trauma triggers" that suddenly ignite and send one into a state of fight or flight. The overwhelming effect of these triggers on the nervous system can be mitigated through the process of co-regulation. In other words, rather than being drawn into the dysregulation with your triggered partner, you can help pull your partner out of that trauma trigger rabbit hole. 

This research–based tool, simple and clear, is a powerful means of beginning the practice of co-regulation with your partner!

Making SAVES:

  • SEE: Notice and reflect to your partner the messages being sent.

  • ASK: Encourage self-reflection through asking a simple, powerful question.

  • VALIDATE: Bring a sense of safety through the skill of validation.

  • EMPATHIZE: Strengthen emotional connection through communicating empathy.

  • SECURE: Provide words of assurance to bring stability to your partner.

    What others say

    "Thank you again for an amazing and tremendous learning experience! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Clinical Partner Specialist, and EMDR trained therapist, and  I, too, have both a personal and professional experience as a betrayed partner with a spouse's sexual addiction. Even though my husband has been sober for the past six years of our 31 year marriage, the missing link to my healing and for all partners is your SAVES steps. Finally, for the first time, I feel hopeful for God's healing hand in our marital relationship."

    "I want to thank you for the webinar. So I need to tell you how valuable the webinar was for me. It's changing my marriage."

    "I thought I’d send a testimony about your Making Saves webinar and tool. My husband and I watched your presentation and I learned so much! My husband said it was good as well. I had the opportunity to use it this weekend, and it was a completely different experience than conversations we have had in the past. I never felt shame about the interaction we'd had. That's NEW!"
