Have you ever said something you didn’t mean to someone you care about—just because you were angry? Do you sometimes snap at friends or coworkers when you’re running late or hurrying to meet a deadline? Just about everyone can probably think of a time they put their foot in their mouth when they were under stress.

We will look at the kinds of powerful emotions and behaviour that can sometimes get us into trouble, and what we can do to keep them in check.
