   Do you or does anyone you know have a critical, biting inner voice that cannot ever simply relax? Is there an intense need for improvement or perfection or invulnerability that prevents easy connection and a sense of grace? Do you long to know exactly how to soothe and tame that critical self-witness? When people struggle with a critical inner voice, it is crucial to understand the mechanisms of self-regulation gone awry. How can early experiences of non-relational connection impact the way we try to take care of ourselves for the rest of our lives? Interpersonal neurobiology and resonant language provide two extremely helpful tools for healing and change. Join Sarah Peyton for an exploration of these supports for transformation of the lacerating inner voice into warmth and precise understanding for the self.
