Marsha Linehan on Areas of Emotion
Working with Emotion
Until we begin to understand the functions of emotions, why we have them, what their effect is on others, we cannot expect to change them.
There are 3 major functions of emotions:
- Emotions Communicate to and Influence Others
- Emotions Organize and Motivate Action
- Emotions Can Be Self-Validating
The functions of emotions effect our lives in a number of ways, and can have enormous impacts on our relationship with trauma.
