Our County Programs are Structured to Meet Your Obligations
Life Skills Awareness currently provides psychoeducation and psychotherapy services for the following San Bernardino County Departments: Child Family Services (CFS), District Attorney Crime/Victim Witness Program, and Superior Court Family Law. Our life skills therapists facilitate eight psychoeducational groups, for a duration of two hours each, on Domestic Violence, Child Endangerment, Child Abuse, and/or Anger Management for adults. Classes are provided for men and women who abuse their partners, whether the abuse is physical, verbal, sexual, psychological, neglect, abandonment, or financial.
Life Skills Awareness is a critical component of a coordinated community response to domestic violence in its efforts of documenting abuse, assessing dangerous situations, monitoring behavior, creating a paper trail regarding compliance with conditions, and providing information and resources to the victims.
The County’s Superior Court Family Law and Child Protective Services Department refers clients to our agency for individual and/or family therapy, Professional Supervised Visitation Monitoring Services, Parenting, and Co-Parenting classes. Our agency employs licensed and pre-licensed therapists to utilize strengths-based and holistic therapeutic intervention strategies to engage individuals and families in improving their emotional and psychosocial well-being.
What Are Psychoeducation and Psychotherapy Services?
Psychoeducation and psychotherapy services offer individuals the opportunity to learn about their mental health and how to cope with their emotions and behaviors in order to live an emotionally healthy life. Psychoeducation typically involves the use of educational materials and structured activities to increase awareness and understanding of mental health issues. It may also include training in communication, problem-solving, and stress management skills. Psychotherapy, on the other hand, is a process of healing that focuses on understanding and resolving psychological issues with the goal of improving mental health.
Psychotherapy can include cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and family therapy, among other forms of therapy. It can also include individual, group, couples, and family counseling. In a typical psychotherapy session, the therapist will help the client identify their issues and develop strategies to cope with and manage their emotions and behaviors.
Our agency employs licensed and pre-licensed therapists to provide individuals and families with the highest quality of care. Our specialists are trained to use evidence-based therapeutic intervention strategies to engage individuals and families in improving their emotional and psychosocial well-being.
At Life Skills Awareness, we provide psychoeducational services to help individuals and families learn about mental health and how to cope with their emotions and behaviors in order to live an emotionally healthy life. Our psychoeducational services are tailored to meet the needs of the individual and family. We provide group sessions, workshops, and seminars on a variety of topics, including anger management, domestic violence, child abuse, and child endangerment. Our psychoeducational services are designed to increase awareness and understanding of mental health issues and to provide individuals and families with the tools they need to manage their emotions and behaviors. Our group sessions focus on various areas including:
- Anger Management
- Domestic Violence/Abuse
- Substance and Alcohol Abuse
- Child Abuse/Endangerment
- Life Skills
Psychoeducation and psychotherapy services can benefit individuals in several ways. These services can provide insight into one’s behavior, helping to identify patterns and triggers that may be causing distress. Psychoeducation and psychotherapy also offer support for dealing with difficult emotions, such as anger, depression, and anxiety. Through counseling, clients can learn new skills to help cope with their emotions and develop a healthier, more positive outlook on life.
In addition to addressing mental health issues, psychotherapy can provide valuable resources and guidance for individuals struggling with anger management. Clients can learn strategies to help them manage their anger and reduce their stress levels. Counseling can also help individuals identify and address any underlying causes of their anger, such as unresolved trauma or a lack of communication skills.
Psychotherapy for depression can be especially beneficial as it helps individuals understand their negative thought patterns and behavior and provides them with support and resources to help manage their depression. Through counseling, clients can gain insight into their mental health, learn how to manage their symptoms, and develop the skills needed to achieve a more positive outlook on life.
