Fight Or Flight Response Psychology Poster

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

The fight-or-flight response is a natural reaction in the body when faced with a stressful or frightening situation. It prepares a person to either confront the challenge or quickly escape from it. In the context of mental health, understanding the fight-or-flight response is important as it plays a role in stress and anxiety.

The Fight Or Flight Response Psychology Poster provides valuable insights into how the body and mind react to stressful situations. It explains the natural responses people experience during stress and highlights the brain areas involved, such as the brain stem, limbic system, and frontal lobe. The poster mentions the functions of these brain regions and how they coordinate to trigger the fight-or-flight response.

Understanding the fight-or-flight response helps kids and teens take proactive steps to manage their stress more effectively. Some techniques they can use include deep breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation, or grounding. For more ideas, we recommend checking out our Stress Management Coping Skills handout.
