In this course, Jay Fields, an expert in emotional regulation, introduces learners to an embodied way to relate to and manage their emotions. Blending conceptual learning with experiential activities, this course offers accessible practices that you can employ in real time in emotional situations. Follow along and discover how your body influences your mind’s ability to regulate emotions, how to practice self-empathy and acknowledge your emotions, and how to responsibly express emotion at work.
