MOTHERLESS DAUGHTERS

This is a therapeutic support group in which women with the common experience of having lost their mother through death, abandonment, or emotional withdrawal may share their thoughts and feelings related to the life, death, loss, and/or absence of their mother. Members must arrange for a personal interview prior to attending.

 

PATIENTS DEALING WITH A CHRONIC ILLNESS

This group will offer therapeutic emotional support to men and women diagnosed with a chronic illness or health condition. The group will help patients cope with stress associated with diagnosis, serve as a safe place to discuss concerns and fears during treatment/surgery, and provide support after treatment is completed.

 

Group format will consist of a combination of support sessions and informational presentations from outside speakers. Members must arrange for a personal interview prior to attending.

 

TEEN GIRLS

Supportive, gentle groups for high school girls who struggle with anxiety and feel uncertain about how they fit in with the typical “teen” scene. This group provides an excellent opportunity for further growth in self-knowledge and self-confidence. Girls will learn how to build satisfying relationships with peers and adults and gain specific strategies for managing stress and worries.

 

Particular attention is directed to facilitating healthy emotional development including how to effectively work through anger, independence, dependence, shyness, depression, and anxiety.

 

Groups meet weekly and emphasize self-development, individuation from parents, and social relationship skills.

 

BREAST CANCER PATIENTS
