You get a breakup text -- on your phone.

Your boss calls you into her office.

Your partner says, "I want a divorce."

That moment - the moment of crisis or panic - can send your mind tearing into the future, constructing one awful scenario after another, and it's that moment when you - or someone you love is vulnerable.

But you can learn and strengthen skills to get you through that moment and out on the other side - safe.
