A great course on learning to cope with difficult emotions! It's helpful to learn the difference between emotions and feelings. The four strategies are very helpful and practical - in utilizing them, one can gather information about oneself (and others) from information embedded in feelings, learn meaning from them, reflect WHY we feel this way and how does it make sense and finally accepting and letting feelings be. This is different from anything I've heard. Particularly helpful is the distinction between all feelings being valid in the privacy of one's own mind and feelings expressed which one must be careful of. Practicing these strategies means one need not be afraid of one's feelings. Thank you for a great course!
