What exactly are emotions? In this session you will be able to define emotions in terms of mind and body (recognizing emotions), build emotion vocabulary (labeling emotions), and define important aspects of emotional intelligence. Youth development professionals apply emotional intelligence in everything they do – from supporting youth manage their feelings to interacting with parents to managing staff. Because music is important to young people and listening to music activates large areas of the brain associated with a wide range of emotions, you will build a better understanding of emotions through music.
