Understanding and Managing Emotional Triggers


Do you find yourself reacting, internalizing, lashing out, or avoiding when it comes to the difficult situations and conversations? Many of us find that certain words, people, events or experiences can trigger an immediate and intense emotional response. These strong emotions can cause us to react in unhealthy ways and feel a loss of control over our choices.

This noontime webinar is designed to help you identify your emotional triggers and develop new skills to manage them in a healthier way.  We’ll talk about automatic thoughts, unhealthy thought patterns, and how to use mindfulness as a means to choose more skillful ways of communicating with yourself and others. By better understanding yourself, you can learn to control your reactions and interact more effectively with others.

This webinar is only available at the scheduled date and time.

Instructor: Sarah Meyer Tapia, MA, is associate director in the Division of Health and Human Performance at Stanford University. She has worked in both employee and student wellness, studying and teaching stress-management, mindfulness, self-compassion, and behavior change to students, faculty, and staff.
