Practical Psychology: Conflict Resolution

This class will break down the concepts of emotional interaction and regulation to help you manage frustration day to day, develop psychologically-based strategies to self-soothe, set boundaries, understand your needs, communicate them, and understand how that communication is received. This class will empower you to build stronger relationships by starting with self-knowledge. Class will include, among other things:

  • Intro to Basic Psychological Concepts
  • What is the unconscious?
  • Emotions Wheel
  • Defense Mechanisms and the Unconscious
  • Stress, Anxiety and “Trauma Responses”
  • Resilience and Emotional Regulation
