Course Description

This course details the process of how to heal from loss, disappointment, and other emotional trauma. It explores the physiological implications of certain chronic emotions such as anger or sadness, and discusses common emotional challenges. It also reviews techniques to promote emotional healing, and how to move forward after the process has been completed. Through understanding the impact of emotion and recognizing when a change must be made, the challenging and lengthy process of emotional healing can begin. This course discusses dealing with the emotional fallout from divorce, death of a loved one, challenges to spiritual life, and disappointment from unfortunate circumstances relating to finances, health and well-being, and other relationships.   Techniques that promote emotional healing are also covered; medication and counseling, journaling and letter writing, art therapy, meditation, socializing, acts of service, and more are explored. Finally, addressing methods and considerations when moving forward after emotional healing and ways to maintain emotional health are outlined.

This course is suitable for personal or professional purposes. This course also serves as an excellent resource for those who may need to understand or guide another person through their emotional healing. Mental health professionals will find that it reflects psychology within a deeply human context; social workers, teachers, religious leaders, and others who sometimes become stand-ins for counselors will discover new perspectives and ways to help those that come to them. If you are considering this course to support and encourage your own emotional healing, you'll find that it is easy to understand and to adapt into your life so as to guide you through difficult times.
