I (Samantha Fenno, PhD, LCSW) discuss the STOP skill in a short video.
The Lakeview Center’s Jason McVicker, LCSW, RDDP, leads a meditation on Loving Kindness.
In the Crisis Survival acronym, ACCEPTS, the letter ‘E’ stands for Emotions–and more particularly, for “different Emotions” from the ones we are feeling. The thought is that tuning in to another, perhaps equally intense emotion, can help us detach a bit from the strong feelings we’re experiencing in our crises. One of Marsha Lineman’s suggestions is listening to emotional music–and this is where Songza comes in. Songza is a FREE music app for your phone with a special feature: Playlists organized by mood. In Songza, you can listen to playlists organized around any of 20 different moods–among them angry, aggressive, confident, dark, happy, mellow, rowdy, and sad. So if you’re feeling angry, pick the “happy” playlist; or if that seems to incongruent, pick the “sad” or the “mellow” one–anything that isn’t your current mood.
