Freezing

Part of the Fight, Flight or Freeze Responses to Stress, Fear.

Feeling:
  • Don't know what to do
  • Not knowing what to do
  • stuck
  • shutting down
  • numb
  • restricted breathing
  • heart pounding
  • Scared stiff
  • Scared to Death
  • Frozen with fear
  • Like a deer that's "frozen in the headlights"



Shutting down as a block to empathy
