Course Description


Emotion is defined as a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one’s circumstances, mood, or relationships with others. Emotions are created in the brain and can signal threats and rewards. Experiencing both positive and negative intense emotions such as pain, distress, despair, fear, excitement, love, happiness, or sadness is normal. Becoming overwhelmed with how to manage these intense emotions can cause one to feel emotionally dysregulated. External messages received from family and society can have an impact on emotional development, including how emotions are processed. I Can’t Keep Calm: Strategies for Regulating Intense Emotions is a 2-hour training designed to bring awareness to the purpose emotions serve in our lives as well as learning to use, enjoy and coexist with them in healthy ways.
