In this program Carol Courcy, MCC will discuss her book "SAVE YOUR INNER TORTOISE… Learn How to Cross the Finish Line Joyful and Satisfied.” She will explain what is emotional agility, the difference with emotional intelligence and how to develop it.
Carol wrote her book for her favorite audience… those overwhelmed, un-inspired, frustrated, disappointed and, as in her case, those resentful of life not turning out as desired. Like her audience, she craved relief, more autonomy and dignity. That desire led her to pursue what she calls a strategic life skill of Emotional Agility. Although we hear “Don’t be so emotional!”, Carol says it is a mistake to ignore emotions as a territory of learning and effective action.
What makes emotional agility necessary?
How do you define emotional agility?
Why bother? Or What happens if you don’t have skills in Emotional Agility?
Can you really learn to control your emotions?
What is difference between Emotional Agility and Emotional intelligence?

During a visit to Florence Italy we met with a local psychotherapist, Dr. Paolo Molino. It was very interesting to get his views on mental health and the stigma surrounding seeking treatment in Italy.
We discussed his use of Gestalt Psychology, EMDR, emotional clearing for him in between client visits, and how mental illness is viewed in Italy. Paolo is fluent in English, French, and Italian which allows him to work with travelers, expats, and students.

Linda Naomi Katz born on March 21, 1969, by the name of Linda Naomi Baron, raised as a modern orthodox Jew, where mental illness became a factor throughout her life. It had started with her mother when she was in the fifth grade. Her mother had suffered a nervous breakdown and was diagnosed with acute depression. This gave Linda and her family a huge amount of stress. As she was growing up into adulthood, her mother's illness affected her in ways that she too would become a depressed person. Linda had difficulties making friends, developing positive relationships, and maintaining employment. After she graduated college, she also suffered from a mental illness and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Through the years she was faced with challenges that were difficult to overcome, but worked hard to achieve recovery. As part of her recovery from mental illness, she became active and volunteered for a variety of mental health organizations. Linda became a member of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness or formerly called National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) and published articles about her life in New York City Voices, a newspaper for people with mental illness to share their personal recovery stories. Both of these agencies helped fight against stigma and other issues pertaining to mental illness. Soon after, Linda found employment working for agencies that help others with mental illness reach their goals and dreams. Today, Linda is happily married, an author who has published a book titled Surviving Mental Illness, My Story which won a Silver Medal Award by Readers Favorite for best non-fiction/autobiography and came in First Place and won the Life Journeys Award for best memoir/biography from Readers Views.

What is Dissociation?
Dissociation is a mental process that causes a lack of connection in a person’s thoughts, memory and sense of identity. Dissociation seems to fall on a continuum of severity. Mild dissociation would be like daydreaming, getting “lost” in a book, or when you are driving down a familiar stretch of road and realize that you do not remember the last several miles. A severe and more chronic form of dissociation is seen in the disorder Dissociative Identity Disorder, once called Multiple Personality Disorder, and other Dissociative Disorders.
Constant sadness, almost every day
This feeling of sadness can occur for no apparent reason (such as a serious event). It can be intense and feel like there is nothing that will make it go away.
Feeling of worthlessness, of excessive or inappropriate guilt
A depressed person often experiences negative and unrealistic feelings of guilt.
Dark or suicidal thoughts
These ideas can occur frequently during depression. They must be taken very seriously and the person must ask for help right away if they are experiencing such emotions.
Loss of interest or pleasure in favourite activities
This loss of interest may affect all areas of life: from previous hobbies (going to movies, reading, shopping…) to everyday activities the person used to enjoy (cooking, doing odd jobs, playing with the children…)
