Emotions are necessary for problem-solving, motivation, and goal-directed behavior, and help us relate to other people. Identifying, exploring, and discussing emotions – how they make us feel, think, and behave – can help us gain perspective, increase a sense of control, and minimize the impact of stress. Join this session to better understand your feelings and learn strategies to explore and communicate about them.
