What if you are in the mood for focusing on one issue or challenge, and learning the EBT tools to address it? You want to be with several other people, confidentially or course (no identifying information shared by us) and "have at" the issue by using the tools.

We hear that a lot, so we are launching a new wave of five courses based on your five top requests. I'm so excited about them that I'm facilitating the first wave of them.

                  New 6-Week Focused Solution Groups

                      Select an issue to focus on to learn the tools and see results!

Relieving Anxiety

Dealing with Challenging Teens

Grieving the Loss of a Loved One

Preventing Diabetes

Relationship Reset for Couples

The difference you will see in these courses is that they are all based on neuroscience. The tools move stress through the brain's resiliency pathways, so during difficult moments when you're not sure what to do, you can reach for the tools. You can spiral up through the stress and have a new sense of clarity and well-being. Also, the brain changes the most when we learn them with others who are overcoming similar issues, as we inspire one another.

For more information about any one of these courses, see below. If you want more information, email me at laurel@ebt.org. The specialty six-week Solution Groups all start in early September! Plan ahead now and save a space in one of them!
