An Evening with Paul Ekman: A Giant in Our Understanding of Emotions
Renowned Psychologist Paul Ekman is the worldwide leader in explaining one’s emotions. Dr. Ekman’s talks share how to control one’s impulses and actions and help us understand and apply the idea of emotional control.
Through years of studies and research, Paul Ekman helps people understand that everyone wants to be able to control their emotional outbursts, but that’s not always an easy thing. He discusses how to spot signs of a coming outburst and prevent it from happening. Through step-by-step ideas, such as an emotional trigger diary, Dr. Ekman teaches his audiences how to be more skilled at noticing when an emotion is just beginning, when an emotion is being concealed, and when a person is unaware of what they are actually feeling.
This conversation will be moderated by Dominic Fareri, PhD, associate professor from the Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology at Adelphi University.
