Co-regulation of affect

« Back to Glossary Index

One person supports another to regulate her affect and her associated emotional state.  For example, if a child becomes angry and dysregulated and an adult matches the child’s affect (how the anger is expressed nonverbally and in the body) it is possible for the adult to lead the child into a more regulated state.
