Mind and Emotions group



Why emotion regulation skills training?

Who doesn’t struggle regulating their responses to emotions? Let’s face it, all of us we’re constantly choosing how to respond to those emotions that show up in our internal world, up and down, left and right, and sometimes more than others. 

Our emotion regulation training curriculum includes 10 specific sessions that are skill based and will teach you to develop effective behavioral responses in your day-to-day living instead of getting trapped in the emotional rollercoaster that shows up your way at times.
