Using the power of emotions in times of change
19th June @ 2:00pm
7 Tickets Remaining!

In times of change, whether at work, home, school or through your relationships with others, unpleasant emotions can easily throw you off balance, even making you feel unwell.

In this event, Emotional Logic Centre founder, Dr Trevor Griffiths, discusses how he developed the approach and how it is changing lives across the world.

This introduction into Emotional Logic is appropriate for anyone who feels stuck in their emotions and are looking to move on or those who are looking for ways to support others going through emotional turmoil.

 

Emotional Logic was developed in the 1990s by a Devon GP.  Over the following decades, he developed an approach that has been proved to be a highly effective way for individuals to use their emotions in a positive way, supporting their recovery.  The approach is now used globally and is achieving much interest in the treatment of mental health issues, especially in the UK.

This workshop will be lead by Chris Lorimer who is an accredited Emotional Logic facilitator.

5 Day course

Wave 1 - June 20th, June 21st, July 16th, July 17th and September 9th 2019

Organisational and individual resilience has never been under more pressure with competing stresses and strains, limited resources and increasing expectations.  The impact on organisations has been palpable, directly reflected in increased staff turover, ineffective communication and low productivity.  Despite this context, businesses have often struggled to support the wellbeing and mental health of staff in a sustainable way.

There is a solution.  Emotional Logic is a lifelong learning, ‘home-or-workplace’ conversational skill. It can help people of all ages to understand how unpleasant loss emotions have useful purposes when seen as part of an integrated process of adjusting to change.   It is not counselling or therapy, but can help individuals and organisations address deep-seated and unproductive emotional situations.  In this 5 day course, Emotional Logic equips coaches with the capability to facilitate individual and group discussions, initiate and support dialogue across organisations, embed EL tools, language and frameworks and impart practical life long learning skills.
