Event description

Description

So what do we mean by emotions? Do we mean everyday feelings – like being fed up, bored, interested, excited? Or do emotions suggest stronger and deeper feelings like anger, sadness, despair, joy, happiness, elation? Do we mean the mood we’re in when we wake up in the morning? Or are we looking at those overwhelming feelings which often we suppress, avoid or ignore, sometimes at great cost.

“In the last decade or so, science has discovered a tremendous amount about the role emotions play in our lives. Researchers have found that even more than IQ, your emotional awareness and abilities to handle feelings will determine your success and happiness in all walks of life, including family relationships.”
– John Gottman, from Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child

In this workshop you'll learn about how emotions affect us physically and mentally, and the stories we attach to our feelings. Find out more about emotional intelligence and how to reduce emotional intensity and overwhelm.

Facilitated by Carolyn Barber, co-director of the Good Mental Health Cooperative, this is one of a series of Wellbeing Workshops to explore different aspects of our mental wellbeing, and share information about the new Mental Wealth Academy project. These will be followed by a seven week personal development course starting in January 2020.

About the Mental Wealth Academy

The Mental Wealth Academy supports people to access community based activities and workshops which help with inclusion, recovery and good mental health. The support is intended for people who have experienced serious life challenges, are socially isolated, anxious or lacking in confidence. This may include experience of mental ill-health, addictions, disability, bereavement, caring responsibilities for example.

At the Good Mental Health Cooperative, we believe that connecting with others, and informal learning opportunities, are really important steps to good mental health, bringing a sense of inclusion and challenge, rather than feeling isolated and lacking in purpose.

This is an introductory programme, with funding provided by the Big Lottery for the free workshops and courses.
