You were born with a body primed and ready to express your needs through emotions. Basic emotions influence all that you feel, think, do, and say. Emotional Body® courses use research-supported methods to help you develop the ability to sense, reconnect with, and manage these organic expressive tools, so you can develop emotional fluency and physical emotion regulation methods.
The lessons in this book, previously available only through specialized courses and workshops, provide detailed information on a remarkable physical approach to emotion regulation. The Emotional Body uses physical patterns discovered in scientific research, and an instructional style informed by extensive research, somatic education theory, and more than ten years of development.
The Emotional Fluency project is the result of a large Insight Development Grant for two-year funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC, a major federal research funding agency that promotes and supports postsecondary-based research and training in the humanities and social sciences.

You are an emotional body. You were born with a body primed and ready to express your needs through emotions, and they influence all you feel, think, do, and say. Everything you encounter triggers your emotions, and then influences your health, relationships, perspective and perception of the world.
Based on Laura Bond's twenty years of teaching acting and somatic emotion-regulation techniques, TEAM for Actors provides tangible methods for integrating the thoughts, emotions, and actions of expressive behavior into acting.
