A free counseling program will begin this month, designed to help community members overcome obstacles in their personal lives and build up their self-image.
The program, offered by the Department of Counseling and Educational Psychology at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, is a Personal Skills Group for adults (18 and older), and may help participants cope with difficult emotions, such as anger, fear, sadness and anxiety. It should also help them improve personal relationships by helping them to learn and practice mindfulness.
The group is based on dialectical behavior therapy, a treatment approach that emphasizes building on strengths to foster positive behavior and self-image. It is an 8-week course which will be offered in English (Tuesday nights) and in Spanish (Tuesday afternoons), and will meet at the Counseling and Training Clinic in the Natural Resources Center Building at the Island University (6300 Ocean Drive, Suite 2700).
