This beginning "Growing Your Functional Adult Skills" class covers Pia Mellody's Five Core issues of Self-Worth, Boundaries, Self-Awareness, Self-Care and Moderation.
This class is for anyone who has times where you feel like you're not quite a full grown up: times when you struggle with your sense of self-worth, or it seems like your self worth is based on whether other people are happy with you or not; if you have issues with keeping personal boundaries and you either take things too personally or you aren't using a filter when you speak; if you struggle with feeling you need to be good/perfect or that you aren't good enough; if you have trouble doing good self-care or asking for help when you need it; if you have trouble saying no; and/or you have issues with self-control or controlling others. All of these are emotional maturity issues.
And all of these can be developing by building your Functional Adult skills!
Pia coined the term Functional Adult to refer to being in a place of emotional maturity. We are being our functional adult self when we know we have inherent worth, we are using good boundaries, we are self-aware, we are doing good self care and utilizing moderation.
Each class has 60-75 minutes of formal lecture and handouts, then 15-30 min for participant questions. Participants are invited to send questions in between classes and will be given a recorded mp3 of the lectures each week, for future personal review.
This class is open to people who are new to this functional adult model as well as for people who want to deepen their understanding.
