I think I missed it because I got confused of our different time zones...

I'd like to think that in the end, it will be worthwhile.

(a lot of people have been pming me about the time/location so here it is again!! )


which is in 1 hour 20 minutes. I'll be in the room until then but will be away from my computer until a little bit before the meeting

welcome!

FYI: to anyone interested this is going to be going on at least once a week for about 3-4 months. Change like this doesn't happen over night. You have to be very committed to it and put in a lot of work, time, effort, and sacrifice (less TV, less gaming, less internet browsing, etc you have to give something else up that takes a lot of your time). I'm not saying it is going to be easy, but I will say that you will benefit from it and come out a better person.

EDIT UPDATE:

We had a successful first meeting 16 people showed up. Transcript, homework and details are in the SA Group second link in my signature.

Carpe Diem!!

It's not too late we pretty much just started. Also don't worry about getting on camera we are going to gradually work our way towards that. You will not be forced to do anything that you are uncomfortable doing.

Right now we're focusing on cognitive therapy- challenging negative thoughts, thought restructuring etc. It's like retraining your brain to not think so negatively in social situations and in life in general. Eventually we will progressively apply these more rational thinking to real life. Through gradual exposures both in the chat room and in real life.

If you feel like motivation has been in a problem in the past with recovery, this is the group for you. We will push you to keep going and get better. But you have to push yourself to attend and to do the homework.

You have to really commit yourself to this if you want to get better. It's really the only way...

So anyone is free to join. Our next session is tomorrow at 12 pm pacific standard time 3 pm eastern pacific time.

Hi, is it too late to join this? I've worked on the Dr Richards tapes already - did about half of it, so am familiar, but working with others would be so much better.

i went through this program already but willing to go through it again, it was really good. Is it to late to join now ?

Also the only problem i had with this program was the exposure part, i was left with so many questions, there was supposed to be a second series of tapes just for exposure but it never came out.

yeah, it really is. i think i saw it's at 6pm pacific time on thursday- please hop in and smack me one if that's not correct.

i've been doing the program on my own for about 11 sessions and it's been quite helpful, but this sounds like a really good way to participate with a group- if all's good with it, i'm interested in joining this week, as well.
