The emotions

Neurophysiology and Intervention Strategies

Emanuela Muriana 

Official psychotherapist of the Strategic Therapy Center
directed by Prof. Giorgio Nardone

This 4-session module explores the different emotions and allows you to discover the most appropriate intervention and communication strategies to intervene as a practitioner of the helping relationship.


Emotions are at the heart of the human being. Their overflows are the basis of many personal but also relational problems. As a practitioner of the helping relationship, their manifestations constitute a fundamental axis of intervention.  

This module helps to understand primary and secondary emotions and their multisystemic implications (neurophysiological, emotional, cognitive, behavioral). 

Fear, anger, pleasure, pain will be approached from a psychopathological and strategic point of view in order to develop the most appropriate posture and method of intervention for the patient.

These online courses will be given in Italian with live French translation.
