Emotion Literacy Enrichment Program

Emotion Literacy

Emotion Literacy Advocates’ course provides thought-provoking experiences that build potent communication skills. It’s a program of reading and listening, writing, discussion, and discovery.

Simple, direct and fun exercises guide you to a deeper understanding of how and why your words fight, defend, separate, open, receive and connect. Laugh, imagine and share your way to useful tools for building the life you love.

We will gather once a week to discuss your pre-class engagement with course materials—delivered online with original literary, theatrical and musical audio segments and questions as prompts for reflective writing. (Internet required)

Play with new ways of thinking—connected to feelings, needs, emotion, expression, and perception—through your own use of everyday language.

In our shared exploration, we will expand communication competencies within and with each other.

“The value of ELA is in its broad arrangement of opportunities for contemplation on how we as individuals experience and interpret the world, and in turn, how we each bring these experiences to life through our language.”


—Dani Hochleutner, MS, LPC, Business Analyst Consultant
