Emotional Intelligence

Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you.
Jackson Brown, Jr.

This ten-week group therapy program is offered for men who wish to explore issues of emotional sensitivity, expression, and interpersonal conflict resolution.  An equal emphasis will be placed on emotional awareness as well as skills development.

Participants can expect to receive awareness and skills training on such issues as:

  • Problem solving skills & conflict resolution techniques
  • Trust building
  • Listening skills
  • Emotional first aid
  • Articulation of difficult feelings
  • Assertiveness
  • Masculinity and emotional constriction
  • Interpersonal boundaries
  • Non-abusive communication skills
  • Empathy training
  • Emotional self-monitoring techniques
  • Cognitive restructuring

The curriculum will also be shaped by participant feedback. Please note that this curriculum can also be covered through individual counselling for those clients who prefer this format.  Individual rates apply.

An assessment interview is required before entry into the program.  Clients sign up for 10-week cycles of group sessions, and these cycles can be renewed as need be.  Clients are welcome to stay for up to two years in the program.

Our fees are covered under most private insurance plans.

Contact us for start dates and/or to arrange an assessment interview.

With integrity, you have nothing to fear, since you have nothing to hide. With integrity, you will do the right thing, so you will have no guilt.
