  • Understand the behaviors, emotions, and ideas that may be behind your illness and how to change them.
  • Identify the life events, such as an illness, divorce, or childhood trauma, that may be at the root of your problems.
  • Regain a sense of control and pleasure in life.
  • Learn healthy ways to address problems.
  • Learn how to work with others to resolve conflicts.
