Psycho Educational Skills Classes

We offer several short-term, solution focused psychoeducational classes for clients who are more interested in skills and practical tactics than in psychotherapy. Part process group, part skills class, these programs offer the practical tools and learning outcomes that one would expect from any high-quality adult education class. They have the added benefit of being led by a Doctorate level therapist who is licensed to practice, and who can provide the type of insight and real-world strategies that can only come from a properly trained psychologist.


anger management

For Difficult Emotions

Understanding poorly expressed anger, internal anger, and particularly unexpressed anger is a critical element in preventing all destructive behaviors. The term "Anger Management" is quite unfortunately misunderstood, and the truth is most people in our anger management classes have experienced some type of severe emotional pain or trauma that has contributed to their present-day problems expressing their anger in a way that is useful to them. The goal is not "to never get angry," but rather to learn "how and when to be angryā€¯. Participants in this group report and process their weekly experiences with anger, and frustration, as well as learn tools from a specified curriculum of 8 tools to understand and manage their anger response.

conflict resolution skills class

For Better Outcomes

The style we use to communicate is often learned from much earlier experiences in our lives when our language skills were newly formed. When faced with stressful, difficult, or uncomfortable discussions and disputes, most people revert to the communication styles used in their family of origin. These tactics usually need updating to be most useful to us in our present lives. For many of us, an unwillingness or inability to manage conflict usually leaves us with unmet needs, unexpressed emotion, anger, resentment, depression, and sometimes illness. This class focuses on understanding and improving communication styles, effective listening, healthy ways to argue, negotiation, disagree, complain, and say no -- while maintaining self-respect and the respect of others.
