About the Presentation - Felt Security: Building it in Yourself and Others

This presentation explains how felt security develops in childhood as well as discusses different ways that trauma can affect felt security. Dr. Arnold explains how felt security might present itself in different ways and with a variety of behaviors. The goals of the presentation are to help the audience understand that felt security is interior and personal to each body regardless of the experiences in the present moment.

Felt security is built through repeated patterns of noticing a human need and meeting the need. Felt security cannot be built without discomfort and risk taking. Felt security gives humans the freedom to explore, learn, grow, and love. The presenter asks the audience to reflect on who are the people that help them to feel safe.
