Hello everyone,

I'm at the stage where I've worked through RN and have the SA side of things under good control.
What I'm not doing is working on improving myself.

What I'm looking for is on-line resources or good book for developing emotional maturity.
Can anyone recommend anything?

Surprised that you haven't had responses yet. Hoping to see some more participation soon as this is absolutely an area of value to all SAs. If you search for things on emotional intelligence or emotional growth (instead of emotional maturity) you may find quite a few resources. I'd also recommend researching Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Lastly, practicing or researching any form of Mindfulness will also be helpful in exploring and developing your emotional maturity. Finding a professional that practices DBT and Mindfulness techniques might be something you'd consider. Regardless, below is a list of things I found helpful. It's not meant to overwhelm you but give you some options. I found that if I approached each with an attitude of "take what you like, leave the rest" it was helpful.

If you're into Podcasts, I highly recommend:
Tara Brach (she has both meditations and talks. The talks have been so helpful in regards to developing my own emotional intelligence)
Jon Faust

Online resources:


Radical Accpetance - Tara Brach
Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook - Matthew McKay
Daring Greatly - Brene Brown
When Things Fall Apart - Pema Chodron
Full Catastrophe Living - Jon Kabat Zinn
Little Book of Mindfulness Dr. Patrizia Collard
Calming the Emotional Storm - Sheri Van Dijk
The Conscious Parent - Shefali Tsabary
A Course in Miracles - Foundation for Inner Peace
Authentic Happiness - Martin Seligman
The Happiness Advantage - Shawn Achor
Be Big - Judith Katz and Frederick Miller
Overworked and Overwhelmed - Scott Eblin
