Personal Power & Self-Esteem
6 week co-ed psycho-educational workshop

Our new Personal Power and Self-Esteem group is designed to increase your understanding and use of important personal empowerment techniques. These skills will help you gain a more authentic personal expression, strengthen your self-image, and build respectful relationships. Topics include . . .


The consequences of low self-esteem can be devastating; it can create anxiety, stress, loneliness and an increased likelihood of depression. Worst of all, negative consequences themselves reinforce the negative self-image and can take a person into a downward spiral of lower and lower self-esteem and increasingly non-productive or even self-destructive behaviours. You are not powerless to change your self-esteem. Gain the skills and knowledge that will put you on the path to higher self-esteem.

Healthy Boundaries

Do you ever think that you are not acknowledged for all the good things you do for everyone else? Have you found yourself in the same kind of dysfunctional relationships over and over again? Do you find you can't say no or feel guilty for taking time for yourself? Explore what boundaries are and how to set them.
Asserting Yourself

Asserting yourself is being able to communicate what you really want in a clear fashion, respecting your own rights and feelings and the rights and feelings of others. Come in and learn the difference between assertion and aggression and learn ways to speak up for yourself, which will help to maintain high self-esteem.

Conflict Resolution

Conflict usually arises when there is a perceived threat to a person's needs, interests or concerns. Conflict provides opportunities for growth through understanding and insight, but many people view conflict as a negative experience caused by abnormally difficult situations in which there are limited options and resources available. Learn about conflict styles and their consequences as well as ways to work with conflict so you can learn and grow.

Communication Skills

Communicating with others is an essential skill in family affairs, romantic relationships and in business dealings. Do you often find yourself misunderstanding other? Do you have difficulty getting your point across clearly? When it comes to communication, what you say and what you don't say are equally important. This workshop will teach you fundamental communication skills that will help you get your point across and help others to understand you more clearly.
