Flooding is Dr. John Gottman’s term for the physiological reaction that occurs when anxiety shuts down your brain and makes communication difficult.
In this video will help you understand why communication gets stalled or stuck in defensiveness, how to recognize flooding in relationships, and what to do to fix it.
