Wellness Skill-building Groups


Emotional Regulation Skills Group


To be well isn’t to constantly live in a state of ease and happiness. It’s to be able to move fluidly through both enjoyable and adverse experiences back to a state of calm, where we feel grounded and safe. To do this, we need tangible skills to help us regulate the wide range of emotions that show up in our everyday lives. Emotions are a normal part of being human - we all have them. They impact what we think and how we behave, but too often we either minimize and push them away or we become flooded and overwhelmed by them. Instead, when we learn how to tune into and effectively regulate our emotions, we are better equipped to simply note them as useful data points in our circumstances - nothing more and nothing less – that can help us respond intentionally (not react). Increasing our ability to do just that gives us the skills and confidence to handle the inevitable ups and downs of life, ultimately leading to positive impacts on our sense of satisfaction at work, our relationships, and our overall well-being. This is a 5-week skills group that will be held on Tuesdays at 11am beginning May 3rd. The group will meet the following dates: May 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31. Register here.

Cultivating Compassion and Self Compassion: Accepting Personal Responsibility Skills Group


There is excellent value in perceiving ourselves as the primary creators of the outcomes and experiences of our lives. At the very least, we are responsible for how we respond to any event, person, place, or thing, whether it is of our creation or not. When work/life experiences and outcomes are unfavorable, many people blame others. When the results and experiences are favorable many times, people credit others. Because the cause of their results is perceived as existing outside of themselves, individuals have no reason to evaluate and possibly change their behaviors. In this group, we will explore how the practices of compassion and self-compassion help us accept personal responsibility regardless of the outcome from a perspective of love and kindness to others and ourselves. Come with a curious mind as we embark on the journey of how the presence of compassion/self-compassion buffers pain and fosters personal growth and personal responsibility during tough times. This is a 4-week skills group that will be held on Wednesdays at 11am beginning May 18th. The group will meet the following dates: May 18 and 25, June 1 and June 8. Register here.

Trauma and Healing Skills Group


Many of us have experienced difficult life circumstances, which may or may impact us to this day. Some of these experiences can be categorized as trauma. This group will explore the concept of trauma, from neurobiological perspectives, based on the latest research and evidence available. Trainees will also be provided with tools to assess the impact trauma has had on them; and learn holistic and practical approaches to healing, centering the mind, body, and soul. This is a 4-week skills group that will be held on Wednesdays at 2pm beginning May 18th. The group will meet the following dates: May 18 and 25, June 1 and June 8. Register here.
