Bibliotherapy Group

Got Hope?

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?  Perhaps you are in need of encouragement or a fresh change in perspective.

If so, come participate in an adventurous 4-week bibliotherapy journey through the text 29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life by Cami Walker. Utilizing 29 Gifts as a tool to generate reflection, discussion, and new ideas, sessions will focus on ways of being and living more consciously hopeful, connected, and positive with self, others, and the world.

While not intended to treat any specific psychological issue or diagnosis, this experience is intended for those who have overcome or are in the process of overcoming life challenges and are seeking ways of maintaining a positive focus and a more peaceful and hopeful disposition. Whether managing stressors or transitions (e.g.: unemployment, illness, relationship difficulties, unmet goals), sessions aim to help participants identify constructive coping strategies and strengths, promote positive thinking and self-care practices, and enhance personal growth.

Registered participants are expected to purchase the book and a journal and read the prologue by the first session.  Join us, because you’re invited!

Group session dates: Tuesdays, July 8, 15, 22, and 29

Group session time: 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
