Reflections: New Monthly Community Discussion Group is Launching this September

Reflections: An Opportunity for the Community to take Pause, Share Reflections and Hope

Council for Relationships (CFR) is pleased to offer a new discussion group, “Reflections,” a forum in which participants are invited to share their feelings, listen to one another, and connect with others who are emotionally impacted by troubling current events. These events may include global tragedy, mass killings, global warming, civil rights issues, etc. With this new program, CFR seeks to provide community, dialogue, and emotional support for those who need it.

Attendees should join to talk about their responses to current events in a safe and supportive group dialogue, which will be facilitated each month by our experienced staff of clinical therapists.  Staff Therapist, Emma Steiner, explains, “People see one tragedy after another in the news, and it’s overwhelming. They end up with feelings of isolation and disempowerment. We want to be the place where people can turn to talk through these feelings and connect with one another.” This program is designed to be flexible and responsive to specific needs in our community.

This monthly discussion group is provided free of charge by Council for Relationships and builds on CFR’s 84-year history of providing high-quality counseling including trauma-informed care. The group will be held on the third Saturday of every month at 11am in University City, the first of which will be held Saturday, September 17th.

This group is free, however pre-registration and pre-screening is required in advance.
