Carolina Mental Health Seminar: Understanding Emotions and How to Talk About Them
Better understand your feelings, and learn strategies to explore and communicate about them.
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.
On November 16th from 12pm - 1:30 pm we gathered to better understand your feelings, and learn strategies to explore and communicate about them.
The session was facilitated by Rachel Rifkin, LCSW | Rachel is a Clinical Instructor / Psychotherapist at UNC School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry. She provides clinical services to adults and groups struggling with a variety of issues, including emotion dysregulation. Rachel believes therapy should be a safe place where people can express and process their thoughts and feelings. She integrates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy into her work with clients.
