The Emotional Skills course teaches insightful and less reactive ways to communicate effectively with others and with yourself. This can result in keeping pain more under control, as pain intensifies under stress.

Module 1: Emotional Development and Neural Pathways
Module 2: Emotions and the Immune System
Module 3: Mental Illnesses
Module 4: The Male and Female Brain
Module 5: Personality Differences
(Module 5 segways into the Lumina Spark course offered as the level 4 of the MBCPM series).
