Explore how to release the difficult thinking and challenging emotions which hold us in unhelpful perspectives.


In 2017, behavioral coach Louise Evans released her book, The Five Chairs, based on Dr. Marshall Rosenberg's process of Non-Violent Communication. She describes a powerful method which can help us master our own behaviors and address the behaviors of others in a compassionate way. In this 5-week course you will explore The Five Chairs alongside complementary mindfulness practices to release the difficult thinking and challenging emotions which keep us seated in unhelpful chairs.

*The Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council (TBHEC) has stopped pre-certifying ANY Continuing Education or Professional Development for mental health providers. The Jung Center cannot guarantee that the programs we provide will qualify for continuing education or Professional Development, nor can any other agency. The Jung Center uses high educational standards when selecting to designate events as "potentially appropriate for CEs", and in evaluating the outcomes of our educational services, and we believe them to meet the requirements of state licensing bodies.
