Having reduced emotional distress to a level where the frontal cortex, executive function, can come back online, we are now able to interpret current events in a rational way. With access to executive function we can engage in the prescribed steps of problem solving: Identify the problem, state the problem using only facts leaving out the “stories in my head”, brainstorm all possible solutions, evaluate possible solutions, implement alternatives, and evaluate the outcome.
We all experience crises in our lives. Sometimes these crises are big, like a divorce, a death, a layoff, failing school, or a break up. Sometimes these crises are small, like traffic, a long line at check out, or not knowing what to wear that day. Distress tolerance skills help us get to a more manageable emotional place for crisis survival. An important aspect of emotion regulation is understanding that painful emotions are not bad, or something that must be avoided. They are a normal part of life, but there are ways to acknowledge and then let go of these feelings so that one is not controlled by them.
Being able to recognize what is going on around us and inside our head enhances our ability to observe rather than react to upsetting events and negative feelings, allowing us to respond with greater wisdom and effectiveness. This creates what we call the “miracle moment”. When we become aware, we then have agency and can choose to act rather than be acted upon.
The human brain requires connection with others. It is essential to vitality, health, life duration, and even survival itself. Brain research is showing that feeling isolated or lonely increases our risk of heart disease, heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, disability, cognitive decline, dementia, depression, and suicide. While holding tightly to our values and goals it is important to identify those traits, behaviors, and qualities in others that can help us safely connect. Resilience includes knowing when and how to reach out to others for help in meeting the challenges we face.

How Our Treatment Works
WE DO WHAT WORKS
Life Launch Centers are different than most therapeutic service providers. We specialize in helping you build long lasting emotional resilience by using all of today’s most powerful psychology principles, from DBT to Neuroscience, CBT, Resilience Research and more.
This specialty program is effective for clients with mild anxiety, depression or suicidal ideation. This level of care is intended for long-term ongoing maintenance after more intensive services have been completed and has much less support than the IOP.
If you’re looking to make progress, the IOP is for sure the best option for you.

Most of the frustration in cost of counseling comes from parents doing 1 of 2 things wrong.
Start with too low a level of care, going to therapy 1 hour a week, and progress dragging out over 1-2 years. This often costs families $125 per week, out of pocket, totaling over $12K.
Waiting to long to get help and the loved one needing residential or acute levels of care that often cost over $10K per month! Yikes!
Don’t do this. Treatment doesn’t have to cost you this much. Most health insurance plans include an IOP benefit, so the most you’ll pay for treatment is the amount of your insurance deductible. Well call and verify your insurance benefits to minimize any out-of-pocket costs to you.
BE FULLY ENGAGED as a family in the treatment process by attending family group, watching the online lessons, and utilizing the Resilience App. Be vulnerable and open to the process, ask questions, and don’t be afraid to request a meeting or session with the therapist.The more you put into the program, the more you and your family will be strengthened and connected.
