HOW IS THE HOUR SPENT
First we will go over the guidelines of the group. Everyone has the opportunity to tell the group about their situation and why they wanted to join the group that month.
After introductions we will focus on specific themes which arise from the introductions. I have prepared materials for each month to go a little deeper into the given subject.
After using the materials, members have the opportunity to share their thoughts and emotions before I will end the meeting.
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF THIS GROUP
Members can talk about their situation in confidence, have the support of group members and hear and feel that they are not alone in their situation.
Members can share their story, remember their loved ones with others and participate in group activity supported by me as the group organiser.
Activities helps members to go deeper in their situation and have more awareness of their feelings and thoughts. This awareness brings more calmness and clarity to their situation.
