    I'm starting two new groups at NuView Psychological Services.
    Brochures are attached - 2 attachments: DBT.pdf | Anger.pdf

    New DBT Skills Training Group at NuView.

    The DBT Skills Training Group meets weekly at Nuview Psychological Services on Saturday morning at 10am and is taught in a 1 1/2 hour lecture style format. It takes about seven (7) months to complete all the modules once and new clients are added every ten weeks. It is recommended that clients complete all modules twice, though this isn’t required. Skills learned are practiced at home. Diary cards are completed weekly to assist in using skills learned and in monitoring mood as well as making changes in target behaviors. Occasional homework assignments assist clients in putting new skills into practice. Call David Earl Johnson, MSW, LICSW at (763)600-7609. For appointments call 651-430-0888.

    About the Group

    Anger and depression are secondary emotions, driven by feelings and experiences beneath. Anxiety is generic distress, without the identifying emotional flavor or knowledge of the source. The purpose of the group is to help members learn about underlying emotions and impulses that can damage their relationships.

    Is Your Life What You Want It To Be?

    Category: Full Impact Living!℠

    We only have one life to live. I think we'd all agree that we want to live a happy life, one that has meaning, and fulfills us. We want:

    • productive activity that challlenges us, engages our skills and teaches us new ones,
    • a life that is enriched by relationships and accomplishments with which we can be proud,
    • a life without regrets or worries,
    • to live our life fully,
    • to maximize our potential,
    • to produce a legacy that benefits those that will survive us and we can look back on with pride.

    And we want to do all this while feeling healthy and safe.

    How many of us succeed? Thats hard to say. We all know people who claim to have a life like this, and we certainly know people who will recount their regrets on request.

    You might notice that having it all, all the time, may be impossible. Some of us might conjure up some old sayings like:

    • "You can't have your cake and eat it too."
    • "You can't always get what you want."

    But how to do we make sure we get what we need when we need it most?

    Its a tall order indeed. Self-help is a huge industry. Every author seems to think they have at least some answers to this question.

    Full Impact Living℠ is my life philosophy based on psychological concepts, research and my experience in providing treatment. It has evolved over more than 30 years of clinical practice successfully helping people with some of the most difficult to treat mental health disorders:
