Unhelpful Thinking—Practical Strategies to Overcome Negative Thinking

April 18, 2017 | 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm


WHO SHOULD ATTEND: This workshop is designed for persons with depression and related mental health conditions. Their families and significant others, as well as care providers may attend. The community and healthcare professionals are also welcome.

OVERVIEW: Unhelpful thinking is typically an automatic and unconscious internal response to life events. Most of the time, these habitual thought patterns go unnoticed until a person experiences negative emotion (e.g. anxiety or depression). This session will help bring awareness to these thought patterns and present research-based strategies to consciously move through unhelpful thinking patterns.

OBJECTIVES:  After attending this program participants will be able to:

  • Identify the most common unhelpful thinking styles that cause emotional distress.
  • Understand cognitive behavioral therapy’s approach to resolve unhelpful thinking patterns.
  • Recognize how mindfulness practices effect emotional well- being.

CONTINUING EDUCATION: 1.5 CEU’s (Certificate of Attendance)
