Early childhood experiences can have lasting effects on how we feel, behave and think as adults. Children who go through extreme hardships (i.e. the loss of a parent, physical, emotional or sexual abuse, familial instability, growing up with a family member who is ill, addicted or otherwise unable to parent adequately, divorce, etc.) often sustain wounds that, if unaddressed, can cause ongoing distress, difficulty and dysfunction.
In this group, participants will discuss their lives and explore the impact that early traumas have had on their development. Group members will give and get support, gain insight into themselves and their families of origin, and learn techniques for managing stress and overcoming their emotional problems.
The group will use a combination of talk therapy, action methods (like Psychodrama, sociometry and creative arts) and mind-body practices (like yoga and meditation) to create a dynamic and varied experience for the participants. An atmosphere of respect, understanding and support will be sustained so that group members may feel comfortable enough to wrestle with such uncomfortable emotions.
A personal interview is required to determine whether this group is right for you. Call/email Susan to discuss setting up an appointment.
