Emotional Regulation Skills Course

God has made us wonderfully. Our emotions and our bodies are closely connected. In fact, emotion always happens in the body. Just as emotions affect the body, the body affects emotions. There are bodily techniques that can be learned to bring about a healthy emotional experience. This course aims at equipping you with the skills to have healthy control over your emotions so that they can be used as God intended them to be used.

This is our goal for this course.

Teach, demonstrate, practice and apply emotional regulation skills to the end that you will be able to regulate your emotions and live a heathier life.

There are 7 lessons:

  1. Lesson One: Understanding Emotional Regulation

  3. Lesson Three: Grounding Technique
  4. Lesson Four: Mindfulness Technique
  5. Lesson Five: Defusion Technique
  6. Lesson Six: Acceptance Technique
  7. Lesson Seven: Expansion Technique

This course is designed for an individual user. However, a mentor with a mentee could also prove beneficial.  

Each skill will be taught using the following cadence:
