Accountability Cognitive Skills

Accountability in Cognitive Skills

Accountability in Cognitive Skills.  Why does being accountable for our emotions and behavior require so much effort? In society today the more we get away with reckless and unacceptable behavior the more we continue that behavior.

We trick our mind into accepting the lack of accountability as normal behavior. When our reckless behavior is addressed, we don’t like it. We get angry with everyone that has input in addressing that behavior. Rarely do we OWN our reckless behavior, rarely do we hold ourselves accountable, and although we know better, we rarely think our consequences are fair.

Accountability in Cognitive Skills may just change your life!

Consequences come in many forms. The most rejected consequence is when we are arrested and the negative consequences that follow.  Most often we are surprised when our behavior is addressed from a criminal aspect, thinking “I only had three beers, it was just one molly”, or I only fight when people won’t leave me alone”.  Reckless behavior, such as addiction, depression, anger, domestic violence, compulsive shoplifting, and theft, anxiety, not only affects the person engaging in that behavior, it also affects the community.  The community includes family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and all other citizens within.

Accountability in Cognitive Skills may just change your life!

When we are engaged in negative behavior as a community it has to be addressed and when we accept ownership of our behavior it is at that point we are open to accountability. Once we accept accountability for our reckless behavior we understand the consequences we know to expect are inevitable. We are able to embrace the corrective behavior skills presented and if practiced we have the ability to make better decisions in our life. We learn to adapt from the learned behavior and our environmental influences, we learn to and conform to positive thinking and not respond to negative thinking or negative emotions as we understand that would contribute to a cycle of chaos in our lives and no accountability.

The focus of the Relationship Groups; Saving your marriage series is to regain confidence in your communication with your partner. It’s based on the premise of interpersonal learning. The process serves as the agent of change.  The group presents realistic challenges to maladaptive interpersonal belief systems and behavioral patterns via feedback from participants and encouragement to experiment with healthier alternative behaviors, first within the group and then outside the group.

According to Irvin Yalom (2005) the following is s brief list of the benefits group psychotherapy can provide.

Universality – feeling of having problems similar to others, not alone.

Altruism – helping and supporting others.

Instillation of hope – encouragement that  recovery is possible.

Guidance – nurturing support & assistance.

Imparting information – teaching about problem and recovery.

Developing social skills – learning new ways to talk about feelings, observations. and concerns.

Interpersonal learning – finding out about themselves & others from the group.

Family Violence Intervention Program Classes – FVIP $30

Family Violence Intervention Program Classes

The groups allow for personal, emotional and psychological development in the areas of responsiveness to feelings of anger, violence and maladaptive reactions. Most adults were not taught how to respond to situations, feelings, and emotions. Our partnership will allow you to learn these new skills rather quickly, so you can communicate with your loved ones in a loving and healthy manner. #FVIP classes are made of gender-specific groups. Each group discusses and deals with issues that are problematic in our daily lives.

It is neither realistic nor possible to completely eliminate anger and violence, therefore, the goal of  #Family Violence Intervention Program classes is to learn how to cope with and express anger and violence in a healthy way. The interventions in each class are designed to build cognitive restructuring of maladaptive thought patterns and behaviors.

In #FVIP classes, we discuss the difference between anger, hostility, aggression, and violence, so that participants can appropriately define and express their experience. Additionally, the #FVIP classes curriculum is designed to address the effects of anger on the body, behavior, mind and how it can lead to violence. These interactive #FVIP classes include various case studies and scenarios that address specific, anger-inducing situations in order to facilitate group dialogues related to appropriate and healthy responses. Additionally, clients will be challenged to objectively question their initial reactions and consequently reframe it to a healthier perspective.
