EMOTIONS AND SELF-REGULATION
"Experience is not what happens to you - it's how you interpret what happens to you."
- Aldous Huxley
This section will introduce the concepts of:
1. Understanding emotions and how they manifest in the body and brain
2. Identifying and describing a variety of emotions using a variety of tools
- going beyond happy, sad and angry -
Class Dojo has now included the section Mojo gets mindful. One of the episodes, Mojo Meets the Beast, introduces the idea that emotions can be overwhelmingly powerful and also offers the opportunity to practice identifying strong emotions through playing the "Name that Emotion" game.
