You can’t stop your feelings, but you can transform your relationship with them. Current research supports the strong link between emotional regulation and resilience. By understanding our emotions and developing emotional coping strategies, we can more easily adapt and grow - even in the face of challenges.

This 3-part workshop begins by walking through the story of emotions. We will learn the science behind the emotional experience, learn to recognize the purpose of our emotions, and the unexpected rewards that may come from painful emotions. We will practice proven evidence-based approaches to emotional regulation, including mindfulness of emotions, a facial feedback exercise, and activities such as “three things” to create more positive, resilience-building emotions in our life. By transforming your relationship with emotions, you can improve your ability to build an emotionally rich, authentic, and meaningful life.

Instructor: Christy Matta is currently a BeWell Coach and is the author of “The Stress Response: How Dialectical Behavior Therapy Can Free You from Needless Anxiety, Worry, Anger, and Other Symptoms of Stress”. Christy has specialized in work with emotion regulation and resilience for over 20 years.
