"Name It to Tame It"

Activity

Summary

Participants will further their vocabulary by using more complex words to describe their feelings.

Instructional Strategies

1. Help participants to get more specific and expand their emotional vocabulary, replacing basic feeling words with more sophisticated terms. 2. Encourage them to graduate from using words like "ok" or "fine" to using words like "alienated" and "hopeless," or "tranquil" and "serene." 3. By teaching subtle distinctions between similar feelings, this empowers people to recognize the full scope of their emotional lives and address all feelings more effectively. 4. Another outcome is to understand how our emotions in turn affect our behaviors, decisions, ability to relate to others, physical and mental health.
