The talk runs 7 to 8:30 pm Tuesday April 24. Our speaker is Dr Lindsey Thomas, one of the team at Changeways Clinic. I'll be there too, and we'll have a book table available.
Here's the blurb:
Feelings themselves cannot harm us, but instead provide valuable information that could help us regain control over our lives. However, in a society filled with increasing distractions, it seems we are developing an aversion to our emotions. Learning to love your emotions involves a willingness to experience, accept, and face negative emotional states.
Specifically, we will look at:
• The value and purpose of emotions
• Basic emotion regulation strategies
• Strategies for approaching rather than avoiding our emotions
