“Endorse yourself for the effort, not only for the performance.”  This statement is one of the tools  Recovery International (RI) uses to learn how to change the way they react to the people and situations they have no control over.  These self-help peer support groups change peoples’ lives for the better using a cognitive behavioral training method developed by the late neuro-psychiatrist Dr. Abraham Low.  For over 80 years this method has helped its members learn to identify and manage negative thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviors that can lead to emotional distress and related physical symptoms.  Participants learn to identify their angry and fearful temper and use their will-power to overcome their symptoms to lead productive, healthier lives.  For more information go to www.recoveryinternatonal.org.

A NAMI San Gabriel Valley General Meeting will precede the speaker at 7:00 pm.
