NAMI Peer-to-Peer

This afternoon I attended week seven of NAMI Peer-to-Peer psychoeducational classes. In class seven we covered:

  • Understanding Emotions
  • Complete Relapse Prevention Grid
  • Focusing on Experiences of Joy
  • Spirituality
  • Physical Health and Mental Health
  • Mindfulness

The class was helpful and supportive, as always. Our material that covered understanding emotions was based on the work of Marsha Linehan, PhD, creator of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) which combines psychotherapeutic technique with the concepts of acceptance and mindfulness.

Tomorrow is my son’s first day of high school, so I am going to keep this post short so that I can enjoy the last evening with my son (and husband) before his big day.
