Hello and welcome to Emotions Education 101!

Our mission is to provide a basic emotions education for teens and adults. Why? Because all people need emotions education to thrive and meet the many emotional challenges of living. We created an affordable and easy-to-implement program for you to facilitate this life-changing class for any population you serve and want to help.

The Emotions Education 101 8-week class can best be described as a gentle learning experience to understand emotions and defenses and help people work the Change Triangle tool, a powerful guide for wellbeing, based on accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy (AEDP), a model firmly grounded in trauma theory, affective neuroscience, attachment theory, emotion theory, and transformational studies.


The course provides people with life-long tools for preventing, easing, and healing anxiety and depression. The reverberations affect generations to come. Participants learn how to predictably access and build comfort inhabiting their calmest, most authentic selves.


Connecting and sharing with others about emotions in a class such as this helps normalize emotions and decreases aloneness. Participants will leave the class with a language with which to communicate their emotions to others and themselves. Participants transform with here-and-now experiences of working with emotions in the body and start a life-long journey that transforms wellbeing.

An alternative or addition to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) or Mindfulness Training, the Emotions Education 101 8-week class is not therapy, it's experiential psychoeducation that is extremely therapeutic. Participants who take the class report decreases in stress, anxiety, and depression. 


This curriculum can be implemented as is or adapted as you see fit:


  • Maybe you are a therapist, counselor, clergy person, doctor, or nurse, serving a population dealing with mental health issues like depression and anxiety.


  • Maybe you want to improve the well-being of people in your corporation on educational institution.

  • Maybe you provide wellness tools and coaching in your community like at a community center.


  • Maybe you are concerned for student's wellness and want to provide lifelong tools to help manage emotions and emotional stress in a high school or college.


  • Maybe you work with parents and you understand the dire need for emotions education to model emotional competency for their children and for self-care to do life's toughest job.

“I knew the class would be good, but I had no clue just how good. It's been outstanding and a pleasure and a joy. The epiphany that it was my authentic self that I was missing after today's first exercise was an enormous relief. Thank you!”

-Debbie Fray, Valparaiso, IN

"After 20 years of on and off therapy, and a lot of bibliotherapy in the last year and a half (I've read about 50 books on this subject since the beginning of 2020), I have to say that that this course (and Hilary's book) were what helped me the most. The Change Triangle is a compassionate map that helps you identify where you are in the present moment and helps you predict how you might feel as you start to heal, so that nothing is shocking or surprising and you feel a sense of pride and ownership throughout the process. By meeting weekly to learn more about how this all works, and to practice feeling emotions in the presence of others in the group, I have seen a significant improvement in my ability to trust others as well as myself. I wish I had been introduced to this empowering content earlier in my life, so I am doing my best to educate parents and teachers about your work so that they can hopefully pass on the benefit to their children." -Anne

“This course has been an amazing experience. I think you should do a lot more of these for people. Thank you for offering it!” -Anonymous


"I'm very much enjoying and getting a lot from this course ladies, thank you. The container you have created offers an open and sharing space for folks to come together with intention to better understand, and be with, ourselves; complex emotions and all that comes with having a beating heart. I've loved the psycho-education and the need to 'not fix' rather 'be with' myself... and what's happening inside. Participants' willingness to be vulnerable, and to share openly, has been so helpful in acknowledging 'me too', and feeling understood. Beyond class, I'm slowly showing up for myself in deeper awareness, more subtle and gentle ways too. I feel that I'm cultivating a more intimate level of 'emotional awareness' within, the good and the not-so-good, and am finding I'm less judgemental of myself in it all. A lifetimes' work. Thank You for creating and -so helpfully- facilitating this active learning group."

“I wanted to take the course because I want to be my authentic self. At the beginning, I didn't think it would be possible because I didn't understand how one knows when they are being authentic. I think I understand now. I don't know if it can happen for me but you have given me the tools to know how. It's up to me to do it.” -Anonymous
