Watching or reading the news, especially bad news, can cause ambient anxiety. This usually affects individuals who "have not yet developed a strong internal psychological or emotional barrier". Picking up external stress and allowing it to impact your own stress level is a fast and involuntary process.
💖M O N D A Y S💖 - the kind of Monday’s you just want to cuddle with someone or something of comfort. .
Monday’s right now mean one thing, therapy. My round up is coming super soon I promise! For now? Pizza, cuddles and an early night. #mondaymantra
There’s so many ways this world can make us fearful, worried or anxious but let’s CHOOSE to start this week off right! Thanks @ajblive for such a powerful song! Go check it out IG friends!! “Trust in You” by Anthony Brown and group therAPy. @ajblive #grouptherAPy •

“Great! That’s just what I was looking for” is not the response that I ever hear from patients about to start #outpatient#addiction rehabilitation at Kolmac when I tell them that #grouptherapy is the core of our approach. Most would prefer individual therapy. This is not, however, a situation in which the customer is always right. Group therapy has become the standard for treating addictions not because patients prefer it, but because it works. Because of their poor results, most clinicians are not willing to use individual therapy as their primary approach. The words of one of my supervisors during my training, referring to individual therapy were, “Psychotherapy is to addictions like penicillin is to cancer.” Fortunately, most of the patients with whom I work get comfortable quickly in a group setting, come to see its advantages, and are able to make the most of it. Their addiction has typically stimulated painful feelings of shame and hopelessness, leading them to become isolated and secretive. Finding themselves in the company of others struggling with very similar issues allows new patients to begin to talk openly about their situation, leading to changes in the way that they think, feel, and behave. The ultimate result is to escape the quagmire of their addiction as they move on to #recovery .
This process can only evolve if the group therapy is designed so that it does not drive away the people who, although reluctant, are willing to give it a try. At Kolmac we find that our patients share a similar set of problems relating to their use of alcohol and drugs but are often unfamiliar with the psychological examination of their internal thoughts and feelings as well as external behavior. Our goal is to create an environment of emotional safety in which people are willing to take the risk of exposing their vulnerabilities. Our patients move at their own pace, more cautious at first and becoming more open with experience and increasing comfort. The staff leads the group in a way that strives to avoid extremes of long, anxiety-provoking silences or adversarial “hot seat” confrontations. - Dr. Kolodner
So this picture above is from the group this saturday. To me it looks very frustrated and angry. But for the client it turned out to be a complete boundary of shutting himself out from talking about his family as it was something too personal for him (which we ofcourse found out later during the session). But once everyone had shared he decided to share carefully based on everyone elses sharing. What I infered from this was that, sometimes talking about something too personal in a group might be intimidating. But it opens up a door for sharing as the client gets to wittiness others sharing as well.
Not only receiving, it facilitates giving 💕

So this beautifull art directive was what we therapists planned for our group on saturday. It turned out to be very personal for all the group members. Everyone described about the characterstics for each of their family members and also the relationship they share with them 💓
For evoking some past and present memories and looking into the personal life of your clients.
Мой подход к работе тезисно:
• Когда вместо мыслей, для клиентов, становится важнее состояние! ⠀
• Не так важно, что ты говоришь, сколько - как ты говоришь!
• Не так важно что ты думаешь, как то, почему ты так думаешь!
• Ещё важнее, что ты чувствуешь, когда так думаешь!
• Удержание одной точки зрения лишает свободы, разнообразие открывает возможности!
Вот с такими мыслями сижу в Пулково, пью кофе и жду посадки на Самару.
Впереди много работы: ⠀
🔺Завтра трансформационная игра "ПУТЬ к МЕЧТЕ". ⠀
🔺20.06-21.06 Психологическая мастерская "НА ГРАНИЦЕ" (Самара, Тольятти). ⠀
🔺23.06 Терапевтическая группа "ЭТИ (НЕ) ПРОСТЫЕ ОТНОШЕНИЯ" (Самара).
Свободного времени мало, кто хочет "личку"- пишите пожалуйста заранее..
До встречи в Самаре!

I think I have reached the full potential of this rifle on factory loads. It consistently holds .6 MOA groups at every distance I've shot at. It's hard knowing it is capable of much more but that involves handloading. Time and the ability to are two things I don't have to do so. Regardless, I as always enjoy any amount of time I can get behind a rifle and will take a .64" group on factory loads any day of the week #fathersday#precisionrifle#bergararifles#sendit#isentit#boltgunner#grouptherapy
