SHINE: Find Your Light | Emotion Regulation
Do you feel trapped and overwhelmed by your own emotions?
This program is particularly helpful if you, or someone you know, tend to resort to unhealthy means of coping with emotions. This includes abusing substances, overworking, overeating or depriving oneself of food, relying too heavily on distraction (e.g. addiction to internet or TV), or self-harm.
Do I have overwhelming emotions?
- Consider one of the following descriptions:
- Are you afraid to feel emotions because they are so intense?
- Do you experience negative emotions (i.e., anger, sadness, anxiety) as powerful waves that sweep you away?
- Do you try to keep yourself from feeling anything at all with alcohol/drugs, avoidance of conflict, distraction (e.g., playing on IPad too much, shopping, gambling), Self-harm, binging, purging, or restricting?
- Do your emotions cause problems in your relationships like angry outbursts or fear of loss (e.g., abandonment, rejection)?
The program is broken down into four different modules, beginning with a compulsory mindfulness workshop. Groups will meet every week to put in place practical, achievable strategies to help you get a handle on your emotions, and to effect meaningful, long-lasting change.
“I was hesitant about attending a group, as I had never attended a group before, but I am glad I did. The DBT skills group run by Dr. Camp and Dr Kline saved my life from continuing down the destructive path I was on. This group gave me the insight to be able to name my emotions, see where my thoughts originated, and how to effectively cope with said emotions in a healthy and productive manner. This also helped me become interpersonally effective with others. I was able to stop engaging in toxic relationships, which provided me with a lot of peace. If you are reading this- take the DBT skills group.” ~ Anonymous
