I work with a lot of social workers who deal with trauma triggers, not just with their clients, with with themselves too. I often describe mindfulness as an approach to ground during a trigger experience. The people I work with really appreciate the easy to remember touchstone approaches (notice 5 things you can see, 4 things you can hear, 3 things you can feel, etc). There are also a couple of simple gifs that use expanding shapes to pattern breathing. Do you know of other tools like these that are easily shared and remembered?

Having a quick go-to grounding method really helps to get one to a place where they can defuse the trigger response!
