Mind over Mood Workshop

Purpose

The goal of this workshop is to help participants learn concepts and skills to identify and modify the thought patterns that cause negative moods. It is particularly appropriate for those experiencing depression, low self-esteem, perfectionism, and excessive anxiety.  The workshop is based on the principles of a form of psychotherapy called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is known for its effectiveness in alleviating a wide variety of problems.  For more information about CBT, follow the links provided below.

More about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Dr. Nelson Binggeli has written a concise introduction to CBT (located on his website), with a focus on the particular skills taught in the M/M program. Students who participate in the Workshops and Seminars are encouraged to read this, as it could help orient them to the concepts they will be learning.  First read the "Introduction to CBT" article, and then read the article on "Cognitive Restructuring."  A link is provided between the first article and the second.

Credit where credit is due

The title Mind over Mood was borrowed from an excellent CBT self-help workbook with the same title.
