Applying Principles of Emotional Intelligence to Disarm Anger in and out of the Therapy Session; Presented by Steve Wolf, PhD - 2 CE Credits

Presented by Steve Wolf, PhD

Workshop Description:
Applying Principles of Emotional Intelligence to Disarm Anger in and out of the Therapy Session
In this introductory to advanced level session, participants will learn that after presenting the basic building blocks of emotional intelligence, anger can be understood as a secondary emotion and a cognitive shift occurs. The client is also taught to become aware, in the moment of their anger, to discharge the emotion, and to identify and express the underlying primary emotion without causing harm to self, others or property. This approach teaches self-control, reduces the obstruction of anger in therapy, facilitates more essential dialogue, and supports the client to use this newfound awareness in other relationships.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
1) Describe the history of the field of emotional intelligence;
2) List the basic building blocks for emotional intelligence;
3) Observe the application of the building blocks for addressing anger;
4) Utilize the “four tools for behavioral change”;
5) Apply the four developmental stages of the Taming Your Anger with Emotional Intelligence Program.
