Life Skills for Living (Nonprofit )

Life Skills for Living (LSL) is a nonprofit organization offering evidence-based Anger Management, Stress Management, Conflict Resolution, and Relationship Enrichment. During the 27-year history of LSL, we have helped thousands of individuals manage their negative emotions. We serve youth, teens, and adults of all ages.

One unique aspect of LSL is that our services are accessible to individuals in a variety of settings – through individual and group classes facilitated at our home office, seminars provided at many local churches, school district adult community education classes, six state prisons, the Bexar County Adult Detention Center and Haven for Hope. We even offer an excellent online class that is easily accessible through a mobile phone, a tablet, and/or a personal computer!

Many organizations provide help for those who need physical resources; LSL provides help for those with emotional needs. Our trained and certified volunteer facilitators provide our programs to meet the emotional needs of our community.

Two-day Facilitator training is available: for $200.00. (Facilitator training can qualify for CEU credits for LPCs and Teachers).

Everyone will experience conflicts in their life. The word "conflict" will usually create negative thoughts. However, conflict can be positive as well as negative. Negative conflicts are disruptive, destructive, and require a lot of energy. Positive conflicts can be a learning tool from which individuals can learn, grow, and become closer in their relationship.

Our staff includes certified conflict resolution specialists to help resolve and mediate disputes that become undesirable conflicts.

We live in a complicated and fast-moving society. Stress can affect other emotions such as negative anger. Stress can be defined as a mismatch between an individual’s coping skills and the demands of their life.

The Life Skills for Living Program centers on altering a person’s usual negative response to stress to a new altered response. This altered response involves creating a process to change our techniques in the way we think, feel, and act during stressful periods that we all experience.

Must be at least 12 years old.
