Most human emotions are fueled by three key emotions: anxiety, fear and shame. Our world and our relationships shrink or expand in direct proportion to our ability to manage these difficult emotions. Dr. Lerner reveals the hidden mischief and wisdom of these unwanted emotions, and offers a helpful and provocative perspective on the many faces of courage.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the negative and covert ways anxiety affects our functioning.
  2. To identify the key components of relational courage.
