Why Group Therapy ?
Being in a group with strangers talking about personal issues and experiences can be anxiety provoking; however, there is often great therapeutic power in group work. Participating in groups often dispel the feeling that you are alone in the issues you are struggling with, the space also gives you the opportunity to hear differing perspectives and obtain support and feedback from others.
Wellness ReDefined periodically offers time-limited, closed groups on various topics. The themes of groups offered take into consideration the unique experiences of BIWOC.
Wellness ReDefined is currently recruiting for the following groups:
Are you a BIWOC enrolled in a graduate program? Are you feeling isolated and overwhelmed by the expectations or the institution at large? This 6-week group will focus on the unique experiences of being a multiple minority in a graduate program. The space will allow members to process and connect around their experiences, as well as assist members in crafting a sustainable self-care plan to combat burnout.
Officially Exhausted Group will begin in July 2022
SUPPORT GROUP FOR BIWOC THERAPISTS
Over the last few years, mental health professionals have helped others navigate through personal issues, as well as unprecedented global events, multiple sociopolitical incidents and community and societal traumas. Therapists have been taught to show up for others, but often forget to care for themselves. This 6-week virtual support group allows BIWOC therapists to have a space of their own by processing experiences related to burnout, compassion fatigue and difficulty with work-life balance.
