Working with Emotions


Facilitator: Judith Pinto

There is much to learn about our emotions and how we can better deal with our complex thoughts and feelings that may arise in different situations. Health challenges often require a variety of ways to discuss and express our feelings. Join, Occupational Therapist, Judith Pinto, for a six week program as she facilitates this informative psychoeducational group using the Acronym –LEVERS.

L: Look, Listen, Learn and Label

E: Engage – often there is a disconnect – when we address situations and step into an the experience or challenge with Avoidance.

How can emotions be expressed effectively?

V: Validate. Validate whatever the experience may be and at the same time learn ways to work through the feelings and thoughts in an effective manner. Sometimes deflecting our feelings rather than addressing them clearly is not ultimately helpful. There are ways to do this effectively.

E: Emphasizing -the feelings and at the same time noting how difficult emotions can often be for each one of us to express effectively.

R: Respond- Responding to the need. “Can I help with that?” or “What or who can help with that?”

S: Solutions – Finding possible ways to solve problems or challenges. What is needed to realize and come to a better resolution of a situation: Is it comfort that is needed, is it dealing with emotional issues etc., or is it bringing forth other resources?
