Do You Have Time For Some Conflict Resolution?

Donna and Leslie are roommates who trigger each other. Now they have neuroscience terms to help them communicate and resolve their issues. 

Donna: When you don't wash the dishes for two days, it really triggers me and it brings up a lot of implicit memories from my chaotic childhood. 

Leslie: When you bring up your chaotic childhood, my central nervous system drops into a fight, flight, or freeze state, and I'm having trouble accessing my prefrontal cortex.
