New Round! Understanding and Coping with Emotional Pain

Written by

We have a new 12-week virtual group starting April 6, 2023! This group uses the evidence-based therapy approach Skills Training in Affect and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR) for individuals currently experiencing distress from trauma. Taught by Cristina Chévere-Rivera, Psy.D. and Stephanie Taylor, Ph.D., this group is geared toward adults who are currently in therapy or who are transitioning out of therapy. REGISTER HERE.

At the end of these 12-weeks, you will have:

  • Enhanced coping skills to navigate distress and regulate difficult emotions. 
  • The skills to make decisions based on important values instead of being emotionally driven.  
  • Healthy ways of relating across social, professional, and personal contexts. 

Through this group, you will also learn:

  • How to have increased emotional awareness. 
  • How the interconnection of body, thoughts, and behaviors can impact your life.
  • What self-compassion is and how you can use it to help yourself in challenging situations.


This virtual group meets every Thursday for 12-weeks and begins on Thursday, April 6th from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. MST. The cost is $65/weekly session.
