Event description
A seminar on how to become more emotionally flexible and accept the full range of emotions

About this event

Throughout life, we’re taught to control our full range of emotions.

We think we should force ourselves to feel happy when we’re sad. Or when visited by our guilt, we learn to push it away.

To avoid disappointment, anger, or unhappiness, we distract ourselves with long working hours or binging food/alcohol/drugs.

These provide a brief sense of control today, but don’t resolve anything tomorrow. In fact, the painful emotions return more intensely.

And that’s when control becomes the problem.

In Acceptance and Commitment Training, the alternative to control is the willingness to experience emotion. Through gentle acceptance, we choose to open ourselves to the full range of private experiences.

In this session, Dr. Koydemir dives into the importance of accepting inner experience and how to practice it, as well as:

• why it’s important to experience a range of emotions

• the positive side of negative emotions

• how to be willing to let go of control

• how to practice gentle acceptance of emotions

• examples of acceptance strategies that you can practice regularly

Join us for this practical session that will change the way you think about difficult emotions.
