Taking Care of You
Taking Care of You (TCY) is a research-based program that offers practical strategies and experiences to help people deal with the stress in their lives. Managing life’s challenges in healthy ways allows participants to take better care of themselves and their overall health. Each week explore topics through small group discussion, self-reflection and activities. Participants will consider ways to:
- Become more aware of the mind-body connection and how to use this awareness for better health
- Develop habits that can lead to a healthier person: body, mind, and spirit
- Respond versus react to the stress in life
- Discover opportunities in life’s challenges
- Find ways to bring more joy into life
- Simplify life
- Live more in the moment

WeCOPE – is an interactive, evidence-based program that helps adults cope with life stress. WeCOPE has been shown to reduce stress and depression, increase positive affect, and improve health behaviors. Dr. Judith Moskowitz’s work is based on the research that even in the context of life stress such as serious illness or death of a loved one, positive emotions can and do occur and have unique coping correlates and adaptive consequences. Managing life’s challenges in healthy ways allows participants to take better care of themselves and others.
Sessions meet once a week for one hour. The six sessions encourage practicing skills such as mindfulness, savoring, positive reappraisal, gratitude, and goal setting among others.
