ACT to Manage Your Difficult Emotions Before They Control You:  

Facilitators:  Dr. John Donahue & Dr. Myra Waters

This four session workshop will introduce participants to an Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach to managing anger and other feelings people sometimes have difficulty handling.  Although the primary focus will be on understanding anger and reducing its negative impact, the tools learned through these sessions may also be applied to other feelings such as anxiety, sadness and frustration.  You will: learn to identify your most difficult feeling, the cost of not managing it well, and discover how the feeling is created and maintained. Finally, you will learn skills that allow you to “act” differently when challenged by these emotions.

A brief pre-group consultation with one of the facilitators is required to participate in this group.  Please call Dr. Waters at (410) 837-5159 or Dr. Donahue at (410) 837-5831 

When:   Thursdays, April 6, 13, 20 & 27, 2017

Where:  AC 111

Time:  12:30 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.

If you have any questions regarding the workshops, you may contact the Counseling Center 410-837-5159.
