We are doing something really unique here...
Prevention is key to healthy living. Physicians and medical professionals have been focused on preventive care for many years by recommending proper exercise and nutrition plans. In psychology, however, we are still operating within the disease-based medical model. People often seek out therapy when in need or distress and they try to learn new skills during difficult times. Though that's important... we believe in a better way.
Let's give people the psychological skills they need before they need it.
In our regular lives, we are not taught how to manage our emotions, what to do with worry, how to quiet our chattering minds, how to focus, how to cope with sadness, anger and guilt, or how to better communicate and listen. We are not taught how to resolve conflict, motivate ourselves and set goals, recover from mistakes, or be kind and loving to ourselves. These are all things that are often taught in therapy.
So we are breaking the mold, changing the narrative. Our programs teach these skills and more. Of course we still have therapy, if it is needed. But our main focus is on prevention.
The following are 8-week intensive prevention programs to teach healthy psychological and emotional skills in order to set the foundation for life and the stressors we may face.
- Teen Program I (12 - 15)
- Teen Program II (16 - 19)
- Young Adult Program (20 - 26)
