C.A.M.P. – CHILDREN’S ANGER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

Younger children sometimes encounter difficulties identifying and expressing their emotions in healthy ways, too. Children and parents are not necessarily given a handbook on how to manage hot tempers, or the most effective means of cooling down. The C.A.M.P. program utilizes activities which are both educational and interactive. Topics addressed include: Emotions identification and regulation, building a set of “cool-down” coping skills, boosting communication and listening skills, and mindfulness-based stress reduction for younger children. Resources are made available for caregivers throughout the program to help reinforce progress in the home. Call to check insurance benefits; Self-Pay=$90 total.

  • LOCATION: MAPS Main Office (South Springfield)
  • Begins: Friday, October 13, 2017 @ 4:00p.m. to 5:30p.m.
  • Facilitator: Jennifer Bartlett, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor

A.A.M.P. – ADOLESCENT ANGER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

There are many possible causes for the development of irritable feelings in an adolescent. Anger might appear as anger directed outward, as in cases of aggression, or anger directed inward at oneself, as in cases of sadness. Our anger management group curriculum will assist your teen in developing the skills necessary to understand anger, to identify the core issues underlying their irritability, as well as learn how to change their cycle of anger expression. The group utilizes up-to-date, research-based strategies which are both educational and interactive. Topics addressed include: Conflict resolution, problem solving, coping skills, impulse control, communication and listening skills, relaxation/calming strategies, and mindfulness-based stress reduction. Activities are both educational and interactive. Resources are made available for caregivers throughout the program to help reinforce progress in the home.

Group Therapy for Adults

 

INTERPERSONAL PROCESS GROUP FOR ADULTS 

Adults are faced with many challenging life experiences that disrupt their ability to achieve happiness and to maintain emotional well-being.  Psychology suggests that relationship troubles are a major contributor to anxiety and depression.  An interpersonal process group allows the participants an opportunity to explore the stressors in their lives and to devise strategies of change.  More specifically, group members have the chance to discuss their difficulties with others, to deliver and receive advice, to learn how they are perceived by others, to uncover faulty relationship patterns and to overcome these.   The members’ way of relating to one another becomes a focus which enables participants to understand how they come across to other people.  The group may then function as an arena to practice new relationship strategies once unproductive behaviors have been identified.

Adults with a variety of adjustment issues are invited to attend.  The facilitator will conduct individual screening interviews with each prospective participant at no charge.  These interviews are intended to further instruct potential members about the process of the group, to address any concerns they might have, and to ensure that the group is a good fit for the participant.  This group is open to adults only and designed to be ongoing.  Call to check insurance benefits; self-pay pricing available upon request.
