Finding Your Center

Finding Your M.I.D.E. through Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Distress Tolerance and Emotion Regulation Skills.

In old Irish, Mide means “center”. The goal of the group is to equip you with what you need to find your center- to better know and understand yourself, to speak your truth, to feel grounded and connected and to “stand in your power”.

In this group, you will learn coping skills that will help you cope more effectively with difficult life circumstances. These skills come from the following 4 Modules (M.I.D.E.), which are taught over 9 weeks:

  • Mindfulness * for developing self-awareness (weeks 1 & 2)
  • Interpersonal Effectiveness * healthy relationship skills with other people and yourself (weeks 3 & 4)
  • Distress Tolerance * getting through a crisis without making it worse (weeks 5, 6 & 7)
  • Emotion Regulation * decreasing negative emotions & generating positive ones (weeks 8&9)
