From emoticons to emotional intelligence: managing emotions in the 21st century

"All learning has an emotional base", Plato

This seminar will look at how our varied emotions can be paradoxically enhancing and frustrating. There is growing body of information about how our brains and bodies experience emotions.  It will discuss what is happening in our brains and bodies when we experience a wide range and intensity of both positive and negative emotions. Knowing about our emotional experiences, ranges and intensities can help us better 'manage' our emotions when communicating electronically and interpersonally.
