Thinking in Shades of Gray
Regular price $1.99
Understanding that reality is black and white with a multitude of gray in between is an important concept to wrestle with, especially in mental health. Realizing there is often more than one right answer, and sometimes no good answer, is considered being “dialectical” and is a helpful skill. For many people with co-occurring disorders, having two or more forces conflicting and pulling in opposite directions can be paralyzing. People can literally shut down, like gears grinding to a halt. This lesson will help you blend, compromise, cooperate, negotiate, and find the middle ground. These strategies will help you shift away from the edges and move toward finding balance and harmony in the middle. Understanding this important concept will help you reduce anxiety and add peace to your life.
