Date & Time
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Whether struggling with depression, anxiety, or the everyday stresses of life, we are wrestling with negative thoughts. Worry and chronic self-criticism drive much of our psychological suffering and show up across a range of problems. But imagine a life unburdened by the struggle with negative thinking—how much more deeply could we engage life if our focus was turned toward taking valued action, unhooked from our patterns of destructive thinking?
Over the last 50 years, cognitive behavioral research has provided us with many powerful techniques that can help liberate us from mental suffering. With cognitive “reframing,” you challenge yourself to illuminate the positive aspects of a challenging situation, avoid seeing only the negative, and identify a brighter narrative or story of what is happening to you. With reframing, you change the way you look at something and consequently change how you experience it.
This workshop will provide you with an evidence-based toolkit of reframing techniques found to be highly effective in dealing with fear, mood disorders, worry, and stress. You will learn specific self-help practices, drawn from cutting edge research, that you can use to meet life’s challenges with greater courage, self-compassion, and wisdom.
