When young women do not have a healthy way of processing and redirecting emotions, suppression tends to be a common solution. For these young women each emotionally traumatic experience is shoved into their Emotional Suitcases. These young ladies carry that suitcase wherever they go. Over time the suitcase fills up with a plethora of negative experiences and becomes too heavy to carry, too messy to sort through and hopeless to unload. With no hope, relief, or help in sight they turn to at-risk behaviors such as drugs, bullying, gang life, and sometimes suicide in order to avoid facing that “Emotional Suitcase!”
In this interactive workshop Tierica breaks down the Emotional Processing System and provides practical steps to help young ladies unpack their emotional suitcases.
