I was working with a client and his foster father today. After the session, the foster father pretty much criticized me much like my father did to me as a child. This trigger happened a few hours ago and I am still shaken up. I hate when I am triggered because I can't shake it until I wake up the next day. I did handle the situation better than I would have a month ago. I was able to react to him as himself not as I would to my father. But I'm so mad at myself that I allowed myself to be triggered. I can't calm myself down. Any ideas?
