Workshop Boundaries:

   Because of the intense nature of this workshop, participants must either provide documentation of ongoing work with a therapist (meeting at least twice a month) or enroll in the special Group Therapy provided as an adjunct to the workshop.

   Many times painful issues arise during the workshop, and it is important for participants to have help in working through them.

Workshop Sessions:

   Your Lifeskills Workshop sessions offer a variety of ways for you to interact with the information provided, and many different tools to assist you with connecting with the full range of expression of your experiences.

   With both didactic and experiential sessions and combinations of the two, most participants find that while the work may be difficult and challenging, it is also thought-provoking and the growth that results feels good.

We ask participants to commit to the full number of sessions because group unity is so very important in this workshop.

   Within the group process, we work together to create a safe haven where participants can open themselves up to and express their deepest feelings.
