This workshop focuses on four categories of emotion—fear, anger, sadness, and joy, and illustrates their potential negative impacts. Problems arise when we respond to the impacts ineffectively—typically through some form of avoidance—instead of discovering our potential to transform the emotion. The key to transformation lies in responding with the emotional super strength hidden within each emotion. With anger the strength is self-mastery; with fear/ personal power; with sadness/ acceptance; with joy/ gratefulness. The workshop concludes with the Emotional Plan for Daily Living—a set of four principles that help integrate their super strengths into an overall approach to life.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Match four emotional super strengths with the appropriate category of emotion.
  2. Identify at least one principle of the Emotional Plan for Daily Living and describe how one would enact it.
