Embracing the Plurality of Emotions and Affective Experience: A 2022 primer for mental health psychotherapy workers
Emotions are one of the most common experiences in human life. But behind this obvious reflection lies a rich, fascinating but deeply paradoxical landscape of empirical research.
Indeed, emotions may qualify as one of the Chalmer's so-called hard problems in cognitive science, alongside mind-body relationship and consciousness. Nonetheless, this highly fluid terrain of emotional research offers mental health workers important depth, breadth and renewed hope when approaching clients' affective experiences. In particular, observable relief from emotional distress might be integrated with subjective notions of personal meaning.
Working well with emotions might extend our work to include both relief of suffering and enhancement of personal meaning.
This online course is designed for psychologists, counselors, social workers, addiction counselors, marriage and family therapists, and other mental health professionals.
We’re that confident you'll find this learning experience to be all that's promised and more than you expected.
