Navigating Back-to-School Stress

This new school year arrives as parents and teachers are experiencing higher levels of stress and anxiety than ever before. There are good reasons for that.

The Power of Positive Emotions

The art of “being positive” is perhaps one of the most misunderstood skills. We think that some people are just born positive and others are not. Many of us can struggle to feel positive when things are difficult. A positive outlook is an essential emotional intelligence skill that anyone can build. People who have developed this ability are able to see the opportunities in any given situation and realistically move forward with skill and perseverance. In this workshop we will focus on techniques to help us build this skill.

Interpersonal Effectiveness

Do you often leave interactions feeling frustrated or defeated, wishing you had better communicated your needs and desired outcome? Or maybe you’ve gotten feedback in the past that you’re inflexible and need to work on your willingness to compromise. Interpersonal Effectiveness is a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skill that focuses on helping you navigate relationships in your life in a way that increases the likelihood you’ll leave interactions getting more of what you want out of them.

In this lecture, we’ll explore causes for intense emotions, communicating & listening, navigating emotional vulnerability and overwhelm, and give you tools to move through interactions more confidently.
