I run the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Intensive Outpatient Group (IOP) as well as see individual clients and noticed people already struggling with holiday stress, compiled with a special kind of stress: COVID fatigue. We all have thoughts and expectations for the holidays, but this year we are most likely very confused on how to deal with the holidays, this leads to increased pressure, symptoms and questions. I am hearing phrases like:

Best Wishes to You this Fall!
The Behavioral Wellness Group remains committed to you in spite of the unusual year we have had! Thanks to your continued confidence in us, BWG has expanded with increased Medication Prescribers and Therapists; we also have a new virtual College Mental Wellness IOP!!

Have you tried to add in a new lifestyle change such as eating healthier or working out then something throws you off your path and you are unable to maintain the adjustment? According to Brene Brown, PhD, a research professor of shame at The University of Houston, our thoughts about ourselves make the difference to start and maintain behavioral changes. If your self thoughts contain shame statements, this will keep you stuck and prevent you from making the changes that you want.

Best Wishes to You this Summer!
As we look back at the unusual and difficult first half of 2020, The Behavioral Wellness Group remains committed to you! We would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You for your ongoing support and confidence. Thanks to that continued confidence in the services we provide, BWG has expanded Medical and Therapy Services in spite of these changing times.

We were recently bombarded with messages about these “unprecedented times” that we are in and many of us are confused about what to do and what not to do.

In some cases, we may not really know what those core values are.

First: Some Important Stats: 9 out of 10 sexually exploited youth know their abuser. 60% of children exploited into prostitution are first recruited by peers.

Unfortunately, there are no key phrases or terms to look out for in order to protect our children online; the sexual exploitation of our youth is insidious in nature. See the Infographic
