Emotions & Coping Classes
When life tosses you in the air, you can either fall or learn how to fly.
Every day of our lives, we are moving toward some moment, some unforeseen event that will change the course of our lives, perhaps even the course of history. It is not really a matter of if, but a matter of when. Challenging or devastating events can befall any one of us at any moment. Thus, the question is really about how prepared we will be to meet the challenge. When life tosses us in the air, we can either plummet to the ground or learn how to fly. Believe it or not, the choice is truly ours.
In the face of such challenges, if we are to remain aloft, we must develop the skills to deal with emotional upheaval, unexpected events, sudden life changes and grief and loss. Coping skills mean the difference between pain and suffering. Pain happens to us all and has a beginning, middle and end; but suffering is optional and can be lifelong. When we cannot move past painful events and we hold onto negative emotions, we are choosing to suffer. This ought not be.
Emotions & Coping Skills Course Components
These classes focus on learning emotional regulation and learning good coping skills. Classes can be purchased as content-only (Solo Class) or with added support (Class Plus option). Class Plus format offers the following benefits:
- A variety of 4-week classes.
- Downloadable learning aids for classes.
- Support forums for questions and peer support.
- Small-group instructional coaching to keep learning on track (3 coach-led, 1 peer-led)
- One private, 30-minute coaching session per month for individualized work.
- Weekly open office hours for course questions.
- Weekly mental fitness tips via mFIT blogs
- Monthly mPACT with mFIT Guides.
For those who want maximum support, we also offer one membership option (Fast Track).
NOTE: All classes are 4 weeks as they are designed to be completed during a 30-day period. There may be multiple class units on the same topic (e.g., Self-Esteem 101; Self-Esteem 102, etc.), which means classes must be taken in order as higher level courses build upon the previous ones.

Change may be hard, but it is so worth the effort.

“I used to always be so worried about upsetting people. I never wanted anyone to be mad at me because it made me feel so horrible, like I'd let them down. After taking classes at the Mental Fitness Institute, I realized that I just needed to be me. Nobody else. And those who loved me for me...well, that's who I'd want in my life anyway. I'm just saying that if I can make that kind of change, anybody can.”
