Many individuals suffer from self-awareness issues including difficulties with self-regulation and self-expression. Social anxiety, evaluation apprehension and shyness can greatly interfere with our ability to establish healthy connections between ourselves and others. A healthy awareness of ourselves, along with the abilities to regulate our behavior and to effectively express ourselves, are critical to creating a good quality of life.

At CPFS, we emphasize the development of “self” skills to address a variety of self-awareness/self-regulation difficulties. Examples of these are:

  • Behavior change, habit control
  • Compulsive, self-destructive behavior…(e.g., substance abuse, self-injury)
  • Identity confusion
  • Aimless direction, absence of life goals
  • Attention & focusing problems
  • Performance Enhancement; artistic, athletic, academic, and occupational
