What exactly is a Grace Point Behavioral Response (GRBR)? This term has been used for some time to describe the emotional and physiological response of the human body when faced with a trauma or threat. This is a natural response but unfortunately can become triggered by a number of different factors including fear, anxiety or stress. The GRBR response itself is very complex and involves a number of different functions within the body. This article aims to explore some of the most common GRBR reactions that occur when we face a stressful event.
Pain is the first GRBR reaction to be experienced during a stressful event. The pain response starts within the limbic system. This part of our brain is responsible for processing and storing information relating to pain. The limbic system works in tandem with the cortex in the cerebral cortex to process the incoming sensory information. When the limbic system senses pain then the cortex sends messages to the central nervous system and so forth. In the case of pain in the central nervous system will send pain signals to the brain. This can then trigger the GRBR response.
As stated above, stress is another factor that can trigger the Grace Point Behavioral Response. When someone experiences high levels of stress then this can affect their central nervous system. This can affect the way that the body reacts to stressful events. It can make people more susceptible to the GRBR. This is because when the body is stressed it releases hormones which in turn can trigger a GRBR. This is why it is important to manage stress effectively through relaxation techniques and by learning new methods of coping.
