Understanding and Managing Emotional Triggers

Do you find yourself reacting, internalizing, lashing out, or avoiding when it comes to the difficult situations and conversations? Many of us find that certain words, people, events or experiences can trigger an immediate and intense emotional response. These strong emotions can cause us to react in unskillful, unsupportive ways.

This noontime webinar is designed to help you identify your emotional triggers and develop skills to manage them well. We’ll talk about automatic thoughts, unhealthy thought patterns, and how to use mindfulness as a means to choose more skillful ways of communicating with yourself and others. By better understanding yourself, you can learn to control your reactions and interact more effectively with others.

This class will be recorded and a one-week link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants.
