I have a growing interest for helping teenage girls with their life skills and personal wellness. A little more than a month ago, I was walking with my husband on a trail in the woods behind my house. All this is to create the background for two conversations I had that affected me very differently. Recently, we posted an article about self-talk, encouraging people to lighten their moods by choosing responses to events in their lives in a spirit of self-compassion and realistic optimism. A SaS reader recently wrote to us and made the following request: “So many of the women I love and care about, from age 10 to age 80, listen to negative messages about themselves all day and night in their own heads. The following handouts and worksheets are from my Tips and Tools for the Therapeutic Toolbox series by mental heath publisher, PESI. For book recommendations for clinicians as well as clients, see my recommended Bibliography page.
Visit me on Facebook at my new Tips and Tools Facebook Page where we can share resources with one another! Although PESI is a Continuing Education Provider for mental health professionals, anyone interested in mental health and self help can sign up and benefit from these practical life skills web casts (and the books below) that are geared towards therapists to help clients. The following psychotherapy resources are some examples of psychoeducational materials such as free therapy handouts and therapy worksheets that therapists can use and download for use with their clients. Since they are self-explanatory as stand alone resources, really anyone interested in self help can enjoy these various materials. Life skills are the common everyday skills you need to manage your life effectively and cope with life challenges.
Below are some sample free therapy handouts, therapy worksheets, self-help quizzes and therapeutic group activities. For the public I offer personal development plans, stress management techniques, positive thinking strategies, practical life skill strategies, and more. For counselors I offer psycho education strategies, counseling skills, social media for mental health professionals, making counseling groups innovative, and more.

Last month, I sat down with my friend Carina Wolff to shed some light on six little mindset changes you can make for big results. I had a bunch of you notice there was no flyer for a September meet up, and I was overjoyed that you’re all beginning to crave that hour for mindfulness, focus, real-talk, learning and sharing.  There will be another one soon! The word “sincere” is one of my buzz words lately, put on my radar when I was joined by Syreeta “Sincerely Syreeta” Martin on my most recent Mindfulness Meet Up.
Morning mantras of successful people are sometimes key to giving people the extra boost they need to conquer the day. Holistic Wellness Coach and Media Personality Pax Tandon brings mind, body and spiritual healing by applying Positive Psychology to real life issues. Now think of one you have pursued tirelessly, despite obstacles, adversities, and situational challenges.
I was looking forward to a creek that we had to cross on stones, trying to pick out the best way across. When your child becomes addicted to drugs, or you lose your job, home, and livelihood, or you receive a diagnosis of a terrible disease or … Most of us can dream up a long list of disasters that could happen, and sometimes they do. I don’t think they recognize how profoundly these messages cripple their efforts to move forward with change.
Here is a video I made for PESI to introduce my books and offer some practical tips and tools you can use with your clients.
Although the following links are no substitute for therapy, they can reinforce important life skills concepts and can provide structure and practice between sessions. Since we are not born with instruction manuals about life, and formal schooling focuses much more on academics than personal adjustment, learning life skills is essential to developing our emotional intelligence, resilience, work-life balance, and much more.
Visit back soon as more links are added to help you fill up your mental health life skills and therapy toolbox!
Clients go to therapy wanting to change, but often they have no inherent knowledge of how to change.

Mindfulness is like gaming; it requires dedicated hours of practice to reach new levels of achievement. Thank you, Syreeta,  for the beautiful energy you’re bringing to our community through your efforts, I was honored to lend my voice. Since they are what most people struggle most with, why is it where we spend most of our energy? In an instant, the toe of my boot caught on a rock in the path, and I fell forward like a tree, landing on both hands and my chin.
These free downloadable therapy handouts, worksheets, self help quizzes and life skills activities provide psychotherapeutic resources that ensure continued growth and personal development. Skill building through these free downloadable Cognitive Behavior Therapy worksheets and Communication handouts help your clients put to practice what they learn in the therapy session. It’s up to the therapist to build a well-stocked toolkit of life skills and psychoeducational strategies. And once you taste the sweetness of the prize, you keep coming back for more. Think of it as a craft of the mind versus a mine craft.
It’s really time we help wellness evolve a little, and this oxytocin-fear-suppression-exercise connection may help us do that. Stress management activities and techniques, counseling worksheets, counseling activities for individuals as well as group counseling sessions, all provide valuable life skills information and opportunities to practice new skills. For those interested in group therapy activities, there is also a couple sheets here that are perfect for interactive group activities.
After a brief faint, my husband was able to pick me up, and I made it home on my own steam.
