This group teaches participants the cognitive therapy approach to emotional problems. Using a workbook called Mind Over Mood, you will examine and change how you think and act, especially in difficult situations or when you are upset. As you learn to challenge and restructure your thought patterns, and act more effectively in situations, you will be much less vulnerable to negative moods and much better able to manage these moods when they do occur.
Tuesdays 6:30-8pm (12 weeks); Next group starts Fall 2017
