									Situations That Trigger
A trigger is an external event that evokes an instantaneous, negative emotional response. Make sure to distinguish the actual triggering behavior from your interpretation. For example: “When John disrespects me” is not a behavior. The actual behavior might be something like: “When John interrupts me before I’ve finished speaking” An absence of behavior might also be a trigger. For example: someone failing to acknowledge you for a significant contribution.
