An excellent article in the Jewish link by Beth Taubes, about the importance of not only taking care of your spiritual needs on Shavous but your physical needs as well.

Embedded in the Shavuos experience is the story of Rus – a Jewish Family case par excellence. Trauma, exile, loss, in law relationships, financial stress, community shame, philanthropic assistance, reconciliation and redemption. Out of pain emerges a hope for the future. As a community we retell the story continuously looking for new perspectives, new messages. JFS is engaged in helping all who come through the door refine the narrative of their lives in ways that present hope for the future. We wish everyone a holiday experience that is meaningful and filled with possibilities. As always, we are here to help.

In this article the author describes how D.B.T therapy changed his life. "DBT provided me with a rubric for figuring out what was causing my anxiety, anger or sadness - and new options for how to behave in light of it". At Jewish Family Service, we not only have an on-going DBT group, all of our staff has been trained in DBT.
