A functional analysis of emotions

Link to event:

Why do we have emotions?

Do they come to make us miserable, and take us on an emotional rollercoaster?  Or are they friends and allies, designed to guide us through life?

Join Clinical Psychologist and Yoga Teacher, Dr Lauren Tober, to explore the function of emotion, and learn practical ways to understand and utilise this very important tool.
