Processing Emotions Worksheet
What is the theory behind this Processing Emotions Worksheet?
It has been observed that people are not much aware of their feelings and sometimes we ignore how we feel. During therapy, therapists try to work on emotional processing and create a health awareness to identify their emotions and reflect on them and transform them into healthy ones. Emotional regulation is required to work on clients’ misconceptions about their emotions and health regulation helps them adopt positive coping.
