“We need to live in mindful harmony with our feelings, not attempt to control them.”
– Les Greenberg
Emotions guide our thoughts and our actions in countless ways of which we are often unaware. Which emotions we experience, how we experience them, and how we relate to them has a significant impact on how we live our lives and relate to others. Understanding our emotions is, therefore, one of the most valuable personal endeavors a person can pursue.
In this one-hour Webinar, Dr. Lisa Firestone will explore the role of emotions in shaping our lives. She will draw on research by Dr. Les Greenberg, the primary originator of Emotion-Focused Therapy, with whom she recently created the online course “The Power of Emotion.” Her Webinar will help illuminate:
- The difference between adaptive and maladaptive emotions
- Where maladaptive emotion comes from
- What is a primary emotion verses a secondary emotion
- How experiences from the past shape our emotions and reactions and impact our current lives
Understanding our emotions, where they come from and how they impact us, allows us to have more power in all aspects of our lives.
