THE RELAPSE DIAGNOSTIC COURSE
When things go wrong (or to help make sure they don’t) this course is here to help you understand the problem and get you back on track.
Pulling it Apart
We’ll start with visual thinking exercises to get out of our heads. We’ll explore how the relapse happened, look at the systems around us, our context, as well as beliefs that may not be helping us.
Be Kind to Yourself
We easily get caught up judging and hating ourselves for falling back into the old habits. But those judgments are heavy! They’ll only slow us down (or worse). So we’ll take a breather here to work on some very practical compassion skills.
Putting it Back Together
Now that we’ve identified the actual problems, we’re going put together a new action plan with an understanding of changes to make, supports to bring into our lives, and the skills we need to practice proactively to sustain great mental health and fitness.
This course is about equipping you with skills and tools you can use forever to sustain healthy changes.
“When I struggled with a bunch of mental illness diagnoses, I was in this constant cycle of relapsing, getting angry at myself, trying to change just by being really angry at myself, and then relapsing again. I saw the problem very narrowly, thought it was just about having more willpower, and ignored all of the things I was doing inside and outside of my head to push me back into the same old problems. The tools I share in this course are the ones that helped me see the bigger picture, understand where I was going wrong, and how I could help myself not only avoid relapse, but thrive and leave those challenges behind. Now that I’ve maintained that recovery for over 10 years, I can genuinely say these are transformative skills and I hope you find them as useful on your journeys as I have on mine.”
