Surviving the 9-5:

Stress Management Boot Camp

Now you've done the deep breathing, soothed your body and your mind, what do you do when the problem is still there?  How do you take steps to engage versus avoid when the going gets tough?  If the shit is going to hit the fan, it's best to have an umbrella.

Our four week beyond the basics course moves past just how to cope and self-soothe to reduce the impact of stress and expands into practical steps to actively push through problems to find solutions and weather the storm.  This practical workshop focuses on teaching strategies to tolerate an unexpected crisis, come up with plans to actively move through it by accept roadblocks and actively participating in the midst of tension so problems get solved and you make it through.  

Session 1: Mindful distress tolerance
Session 2: Checking in versus checking out
Session 3: Radical acceptance
Session 4: Active participation
