Emotions – Why do we have them?

Emotions are an essential function of communication that allow others to know what is happening to you and help build connections in relationships. Just as important is the information emotions can give you to guide your own decision-making.  Like happiness for instance, which lets you know that something is going well and motivates you to recreate the experience in the future. Read Behavioral Health Partners’ September blog post to learn more about the emotions we all experience. Behavioral Health Partners is brought to you by the YOURhealth employee wellness program, providing eligible individuals with mental health services for stress, anxiety, and depression.

When a person’s grief-related thoughts, behaviors, or emotions are very distressing, don’t improve with time, or make it difficult to manage daily work and living, a psychotherapist may be able to provide assistance and will tailor treatment to your specific needs.

Are You An Effective Communicator?

Are You An Effective Communicator?

Effective communication is when a message is delivered, received, and understood in the way it was intended.  Communication effectively combines a set of skills including appropriate body language, active listening, managing stress in the moment, the ability to communicate assertively, and the capacity to recognize and understand your own emotions and those of the person you are communicating with. Learning to use these skills can improve communication with co-workers, friends, and family.  Find out more in the Behavioral Health Partners' May Blog Post.
