Whether the world is status quo or operating with change and uncertainty, the one constant that you can learn to rely on is your skillful self. This workshop is designed to be a non-clinical, introduction to the foundational skills developed by Marsha Linehan as part of Dialectical Behavior Therapy to provide a road map to incorporating in our daily lives tools for mindfully and nonjudgmentally acknowledging facts and participating in the moment; effectively maintaining relationships, self respect and meeting our goals; understanding and regulating our emotions; and tolerating distress during times of crisis without making things worse for ourselves. If time permits we will try to look at the intersection of these skills with psychological first aid.

This session will be held on Wednesdays from 1:30-3:30PM.
Registration is required to receive the zoom link.
