NOW RECRUITING FOR WINTER/SPRING 2015 GROUP.

Reclaiming Our Worth: Take Back What Is Yours

ABOUT THIS GROUP

Living in this culture is hazardous to our mental well-being.

In this group we will learn how this culture hurts us in ways that make us feel disconnected from others and discontent within ourselves.  We will learn how we can heal ourselves from these experiences. Healing from cultural harm will involve learning new ways to relate to yourself and others, AND reclaiming your full worth in the present moment. Specific topics will include:

  • Learning how to not be affected by social comparisons from others
  • Understanding the harm of having an idea of perfection and an image of the Future-Better-You
  • Letting go of the words Perfect and Normal so you can find happiness now
  • Cultivating contentment in the midst of worry
  • Grounding and centering practices to find balance in your body and mind
  • Learning to use your emotions rather than feel used by your emotions

 

ARE YOU A GOOD FIT FOR THIS GROUP?

While this group is therapeutic in nature, it can’t replace the work that is done in individual therapy to address specific concerns. This group is for individuals who are not currently experiencing significant psychological symptoms, or who are currently adequately managing any psychological challenges as needed.

Trauma and harm can come in many forms. If you have experienced traumatic events in your life then you may want to consider if this group sounds like it may be too triggering for you at this time. A list of topics will be shared in the first group. You are welcome to skip any meetings that you think would not be in your best interest. I can also discuss the content with you beforehand so you can consider if you want to attend.

 

 DETAILS

  • The group will meet at 911 Broad Street, Durham, NC 27705
  • The group will last 16 weeks.  Each group will last 90 minutes.
  • The time will be finalized after knowing all participant schedules.  Group will likely be in the early evening.
  •  The cost will be $65 per session.

If you are interested in joining the group I will ask to meet with you for about an hour before the group begins. We will meet at my office in Durham. I will ask you a few questions to get a sense of your story, tell you more about the group, and you can ask me any questions you may have.
