  • Stress management: These services include biofeedback and education in stress relief techniques, positive coping skills, detecting cognitive distortions (e.g., false thoughts that are obstacles to self-motivation) and good sleep habits.
  • General wellness education: Topics presented in these classes include healthy lifestyles, increased resiliency, preventing chronic disease through healthy living habits, and self-care. These education programs may also be provided for at other installation locations and events (e.g., on-post schools, health fairs, Child, Youth & School (CYS) programs, etc.).
