F043 - Hot Buttons: Recognizing What Sets You Off and Managing Your Triggers

Saturday, March 2; 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Examine the physiology of hot button triggers
  • Identify your triggers
  • Manage your response to these triggers


Everyone has certain triggers that when activated can change an interaction, usually for the worse. Think of whining and how it can make you internally cringe. Many times we do not recognize our own Hot Buttons that trigger that change. This session will explore the physiologic mechanism of these hot buttons, help you identify what your triggers might be, and discuss mechanisms to manage these responses to make meetings and interactions run more smoothly and be more productive.
