  7. Utilize the bio-social theory for disorders of overcontrol with clients early on in treatment.
  8. Understand how our neural substrates are linked to social signaling and apply this knowledge to reverse the process by using body postures and facial expressions to activate neural substrates linked to social safety and reward.
  9. Integrate the neuroregulatory model with the bio-social theory for overcontrolled disorders to better understand why overcontrolled clients have trouble activating their social safety system.
