Presenter: Jaime Yasky
Emotional regulation or emotional self-regulation is a widely used concept in mental health practice. But, how much do we know about this seemingly obvious concept?
I invite you to an exercise of reflection about emotional regulation from a theoretical, empirical and clinical point of view in order to gain an understanding about the human process it refers to, and thus enhance the way we manage emotional regulation difficulties with our clients. To do so I will review the origin, acceptations and aspects of the concept from both theory and research, to then touch on the implications for clinical practice, including specific ways in which this problem can be worked with clients in psychotherapy/counselling processes.
I hope this exercise will provoke an open and collaborative discussion connecting these ideas with our clinical experience.
