Managing emotional difficulties can be challenging, not just for the individual but the people around them. Our actions do not only affect us. Everything that we do impacts the lives of others, especially those closest to us.
We understand your desire to be better at handling what you are going through – not just for your sake but for the benefit of everyone around you. As Mental Health Professionals, we promote different coping mechanisms that are safe and healthy.
Our Psychiatric Services in Duluth, Minnesota includes various therapy programs to understand the sources of troubling symptoms. We incorporate different techniques in helping each client, making sure their choices are respected and their coping skills, improved.
A problem-focused strategy will directly tackle the source of distress. But instead of “reacting” about it and letting their emotions rule their next actions, a problem-focused strategy would only focus on helping the individual identify ways to eliminate or reduce the problem. Through working harder or trying another alternative, the individual has a productive time dealing with the issue.
In some cases, an emotion-focused strategy can work. This depends on the person’s preferences. There are cases when a little free time to think about other things can ease the anxiety and tension that are clouding one’s judgment.
To further help you, the psychiatry in Duluth can introduce healthy coping mechanisms when you are faced with stressful situations.
