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;

Troubleshooting; and

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.

Cost: $60.00
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 info@edoyr.com more information.
