However, we can work to anticipate and manage the stress and other problematic emotions that may be part of the entire holiday package. Using principles of Rational Emotive & Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (RE&CBT), participants will learn to identify and challenge maladaptive beliefs and thought patterns that can often be triggered by the stressors of the season.
