Plutchik's Wheel of Emotions

 



It's often hard for abuse survivors to identify our emotions, which makes it hard to heal from the trauma and to rebuild our lives, not to mention communicating with others. The image above was created by Robert Plutchik as a part of his Psychoevolutionary Theory of Basic Emotions. However, it's helpful even aside from the theory, as a basic tool to identify what you feel. Feel free to bookmark :)


When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
