Stress & Emotional Regulation

Stress & Emotional Regulation
How does our emotional experience influence our well-being, relationships, and daily lives? How does stress affect our ability to manage emotion? In this course we will explore the links between emotion, emotional regulation, stress, self-awareness, and well-being. We will discuss theoretical perspectives and explore the physiological, experiential, and behavioral aspects of emotion regulation. We will consider how stress and other factors influence our ability to manage emotion, especially during adolescence and emerging adulthood. In addition, we will utilize film and music to highlight how emotion is experienced and will explore strategies for enhancing emotion regulation, including mindfulness practices. This course counts as elective credit towards the Psychology major.
