We have decided to deepen and expand the practical help that can be gained by our”Learning How” seminars by having a “Learning How to Live Support Group”. This group will be open to anyone who wants to come. We will provide tools to help solve problems which participants will be able to bring up anonymously.
What is a support group?
In a “Learning How To Live” support group, you’ll find people who want to find answers to the struggles of life and are interested in “Learning How” to be more effective and efficient in their relationships, emotional health, and lifestyle. This support group is for people who want to live a more “sane, stable, and spiritual” life.
Members of a support group typically come ready to ask questions, learn new skills, share personal experiences and offer one another emotional comfort and moral support. You also have the opportunity not to share and just listen to the advice. Members must also remember that all information needs to remain CONFIDENTIAL concerning the participants.
Dr. Wise will be there to facilitate and teach the group. He will be there to provide advice and tools in a personal manner while also aiming to help everyone in the group benefit from questions being asked.
Benefits of participating in “Learning How to Live” support groups may include:
Get mentored by Dr. Norm on practical issues
Able to ask questions in a small group
Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged
Gaining a sense of empowerment and control
Improving your coping skills and sense of adjustment
Talking openly and honestly about your struggles and problems to the extent you feel comfortable doing this with others.
Reducing distress, depression or anxiety because you are moving in the right direction.
Developing a clearer understanding of what to expect with your situation.
The support group will meet at First Church West any Saturday morning that there is not a seminar from 10 AM to Noon. It will provide a place to discuss the ideas learned in the seminars and create effective plans for how to apply them into our lives. Call Janet at 954-726-2302 for a schedule.
THE SUPPORT GROUP IS FREE BUT A LOVING OFFERING WILL BE TAKEN AT THE END OF THE GROUP.
