Goal Setting for Positive Change with Michelle Scott, OT Reg (Ont)
DATE & TIME: 6 Thursdays, 6:30-8:00 p.m. - exact dates TBA - please inquire.
LOCATION: 15213 Yonge Street, Suite 15 (on the second floor), Aurora
Getting to the point where you're ready to make a change can be hard. Starting to actually make that change can be even harder. Where do you start? You may sense a certain dissatisfaction with your current circumstances, but not know exactly where to go from there. You may have a vague idea of what you need to change, but not know exactly how to take the first step. This group is about taking that sense of dissatisfaction, that desire to change, and turning it into a concrete goal that can be acted upon in small, meaningful steps.
Using SMART Goal Setting, group members will work on identifying and creating a meaningful, yet achievable, goal that they will work on for six weeks. With support from the group facilitator and other group members, participants will take steps towards their goal, troubleshoot potential challenges, and learn skills for recovery and positive change that can be adapted to a variety of life situations.
Goals may include but are not limited to:
Addressing problem behaviours and/or activities through the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and/or Behavioural Activation (BA) -based approaches
Getting back to meaningful activities such as work, volunteering, or socializing after going through a mental health challenge
Maintaining wellness and recovery-related behaviours and activities post-treatment
Exploring the use of meaningful activity as a way of finding what it means to live a meaningful life, through an Existential/Logotherapeutic approach
Each group session will address a specific aspect of the goal-setting process:
Laying out the issues;
Setting a goal;
Implementing the goal;
Strategies for maintenance.
This will be a closed group, and group members will be asked to commit to attending all six sessions to the best of their ability.
This group is open to any individual self-identifying as having a mental health issue or life challenge, with a desire to make a change in behaviour that will promote wellness and healing. A brief phone interview will be required before starting services to discuss treatment options and fee scale. Please call 905-886-6632 or email firstname.lastname@example.org more information.

Body Image. In today’s technology driven world, we are constantly bombarded by images and messages of what we should be. How we should dress, how we should look, and how much we should weigh. How do we help our children (and ourselves) navigate through this, promoting health and a healthy body image at the same time? How do we help them to grow into confident, strong, happy individuals who know that they are more than the number on the scale? Come to this session to discuss your experiences, ask your questions, and learn some strategies to help! For more information and event details, visit their Facebook event page.
Fattitude Screening, sponsored by Nourish YXE, University of Saskatchewan’s “Be Well” initiative, the USSU Help Centre, and BridgePoint Center for Eating Disorders
Thursday, Jan. 31 from 7:00 - 9:00pm CST
This film aims to shed light on the harsh and very real realities of fat shaming and fat hatred - to expose how fat hatred permeates our popular culture, spreading the message that fat is bad and in turn forwarding the idea that being cruel, unkind, or downright unjust to a fat person is acceptable behavior. AND THEN, TO INSPIRE CHANGE. Frances Morrison Library Theatre 311 23rd Street East, Saskatoon. For more information, visit their Facebook event page.
