Domain III- Life Skills – Social Engagement, Organization, Balance:

Life Skills – taught in-home or in the community by coaches/therapists. We start with a ground-up approach, assessing and collaborating with clients and families to determine which areas of functioning need to be addressed first and foremost. For some this may be areas of daily living such as:

-Developing and maintaining an adequate diet that meets one’s daily needs:

Often, clients do need eat the appropriate types or amounts of food needed for optimal functioning and need coaching in this area. This may include shopping guidance and planning, budgeting, meal preparation, meeting with a nutritionist, and/or assistance with diet plan implementation.

-Skills of daily living: groceries, food preparation, organizational skills/habits.

-Positive, sustainable exercise and movement habits.

-Social skills and interaction.

As humans we are “built” for social engagement. This is reflected in the design of our brains and bodies. Some of us thrive on more or less of this.

Many clients are lacking or unfulfilled in this area for a variety of reasons, both mental, physical emotional. As the client addresses these areas in psychotherapy and fitness training, they are supported to try new things socially – to venture forth and try on new skills and abilities in a variety of social areas. Whether it’s one’s niche, deepening it, or feeling more competent in a variety of social contexts, supporting and challenging clients in this arena is vital to support a full and healthy life.

-Providing appropriate mental nourishment and stimulation:

This is encouraged and supported via activities that promote new learning as well as practicing old favorite hobbies. We support and encourage activities that fit this category, and engage with clients as we may in these activities. Sometimes that means help with studying and organization. These may include:

Meditation and mindfulness practice

School/Classes – study habits



-Becoming engaged in the world in perhaps a more meaningful or creative way by exploring one’s passions, artistic interests and desire for positive change – and then putting that forth!

Engaging with the world in a way that is meaningful to the individual is an area of functioning that can imbue a high degree of satisfaction and provide deeper life experience. Engaging with clients to begin to find where these areas may be for them, and how they may creatively put themselves forward is something that is an important question to explore and life step to make. As clients mature and their functioning improves, they are invited to begin to explore this area via:

Joining of and organization of various groups – service groups, spiritual groups, educational groups, social awareness groups, social/fun groups

Engagement in community opportunities for expression – open mic nights, art showings, dance/movement

Career exploration – career testing, college degree exploration.

Volunteer opportunities
