Lifestyle Choices and Emotions: Affective Skills for Wellness and Health Promotion Practitioners | Michael Arloski


Lifestyle behavioral change is not simply a rational process. Emotions influence or sometimes completely determine the outcome of decisions we are confronted with every day. Discover how to help the people you serve to address the role their emotions are playing in lifestyle improvement. Engage in this largely experiential workshop to deepen your ability to work with emotions without crossing the line into therapy.

Following this sessions, participants will be able to:

  1. differentiate between emotions, feelings and behaviors related to lifestyle decision making.
  2. identify at least three ways to effectively coach with emotions.
  3. list at least three benefits of integrating working with emotions into work.

NOTE: "Registration" for individual sessions is not required. Once onsite, you may attend any sessions on the day(s) for which you are registered.
