Emotional Wellness, Authenticity, and Fulfillment
Breakthrough’s specially designed workshops at Caron Florida and Caron Pennsylvania can help anyone who desires emotional health, mutually satisfying relationships, and wellbeing. Built on emotionally focused therapy, resilience building, the expressive arts, and psychodrama, Breakthrough workshops explore relational patterns and barriers in order to build a foundation for emotional wellness, authenticity, and fulfillment.
Five-Day Personal Growth Workshop
This foundational five-day workshop can help adults achieve greater self-awareness and inner peace. In a safe space guided by credentialed therapists and counselors, participants can examine and modify long-standing emotional and relational patterns that interfere with their ability to live the lives they envision.
Through guided group work, participants explore their inner critic and ineffective patterns of thinking and behavior. They begin developing healthier, more effective alternatives, gaining insight and self-confidence that can lead to lasting change. Participants are encouraged to step out of their comfort zones and try new things while practicing the change they hope to achieve — all in a safe and affirming environment.
Address and process life experiences, from the effects of homophobia to challenges related to self-image and family of origin. Led by experienced, credentialed therapists, this trauma-informed, five-day workshop gives you the tools you need to work through issues related to emotional health, like social stigma and related stress and anxiety. You will learn coping skills to help you:
- Improve emotional self-regulation
- Change your inner critic to an inner support
- Establish healthy boundaries
- Recognize and deal with compulsive behaviors
- Look at family systems/family of origin
Military Couples Counseling: Veterans Healing Through Connection
This three-day workshop is designed for active service members, veterans, and their significant others who want to create, strengthen, and restore healthy intimacy. The program is open to any committed couple, regardless of marital status.
In individual and group counseling sessions, couples practice connecting, communicating, and understanding relationship dynamics to develop a strong foundation for a loving, collaborative relationship. Developed by licensed therapists, including a career Navy veteran, workshop topics include:
- Turning barriers to intimacy into points of connection.
- Turning toward your partner rather than away in times of stress.
- Facing stressful situations together—particularly those specific to military couples like deployment, returning home, relocation, and parenting.
Thanks to the generosity of several donors, including the Arlene and Michael Rosen Foundation, the workshop and its accommodations are free for qualifying couples. Childcare is not available.
