A common misconception regarding emotional regulation is that it is synonymous with anger management. The truth is, it is far more than that. Emotional regulation is the ability to feel good, positive, optimistic, centered and/or happy at any given point. Even when life goes against your plans, emotional regulation skills enable you to choose hopefulness rather than despair. But far more than a psychological practice, emotional regulation is a healthy behavior with powerful psychoneurological consequences. Explore with Pat Love, EdD the scientific rational for managing your emotions and teaching your clients to do the same. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
