Remember this acronym to get you through uncertain times

We always remember things better when it comes with an acronym, right?

Mohawk College counsellor Karen shares an acronym to help you remember simple principles to think about during these uncertain times: SCASM. 

Solve – Can you solve this problem?

Change – Can you change your attitude?

Accept – Can you radically accept this situation?

Stay miserable – Do you want to stay miserable?

Make it worse – Are your actions making your outlook worse?

Watch the video below to get all of the details on this Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) principle.
