Thinking Matters Evolution
Grand Rapids, MI October 23,
2015 Enroll NOW!
Most cognitive behavioral approaches to changing behavior focus upon why people do the things that cause them problems. Oftentimes people try to correct problematic behaviors by substituting one behavior for another. This does not often bring about long term behavior and lifestyle changes because entrenched thinking habits are left unaddressed.
Thinking Matters Evolution takes a different approach. Using a step-by step process Thinking Matters Evolution teaches skills that help people understand their own thinking and decision making. This five step process begins with viewing situations objectively and moves toward alternative thinking for similar situations.
Using a worksheet based approach Thinking Matters Evolution helps people discover and correct thinking that leads to risk of problem behaviors.
Thinking Matters Evolution is appropriate for anyone that would like to work toward ridding themselves of troubling behaviors. The gender neutral graphics and easy to understand language is appropriate for adults and youth.
