ONLINE: Emotional Intelligence: Getting to Know Yourself and Others will expand students' understanding of the many roles that emotions play in our health and lives. This refreshed and expanded course is designed to incorporate the latest research and include deeper discussion on the limbic system of the brain, which is the command center of our emotions. We will use emotional intelligence handouts that describe activities to manage emotions and become more aware of negative or challenging emotions. Students will gain knowledge and awareness of their emotions and the emotions of others, including language to identify their emotions and tools to assist them with emotion management, and they will be able to facilitate improved emotional health for themselves and others and improved relationships. | Lecture + Q&A.
