During times of high emotion and uncertainty, it can be difficult to effectively process and manage the range of feelings we may experience. Discussing these challenging feelings and experiences with colleagues, staff members, and/or those in our communities, can create additional stress and anxiety. This webinar will normalize these experiences and will provide specific strategies and techniques that can be used by individuals to support themselves. It will also provide strategies for approaching conversations with others from a vulnerable yet courageous perspective.
In this session, participants will:
• Identify the neuroscience of feelings / emotions including the Amygdala hijack
• Practice mindfulness approaches to Notice, Explore and Accept feelings as they arise
• Explore the distinction between a Dialogue and a Discussion
• Identify the elements of a Courageous Conversation including Preparation, Engagement and Closing
