Go for it! Wallow! But do it effectively. At least that’s what former North Vancouver resident Tina Gilbertson, a psychotherapist and author of Constructive Wallowing: How to Beat Bad Feelings By Letting Yourself Have Them, says.
Now based in Portland, Tina teaches classes on emotions, assertiveness, self-esteem, anxiety, goal-setting, decision-making and doing work you love. She also blogs for psychologytoday.com and goodtherapy.org. And she’ll be here on Saturday, June 21st, from 2-3pm to offer a workshop called “Emotions 101.”
This lively, interactive class will explain why much of what we “know” about emotions is a myth. Is anger really toxic? Do feelings go away faster if we don’t dwell on them? Can we really control our feelings by choosing our thoughts?
Whether you’re an empty-nester, newly divorced or unemployed, bereaved or experiencing relationship troubles, come learn how to deal effectively with the difficult emotions associated with common life challenges.
