Question: What happens during a group meeting?
"In the youth group we first encourage members to share what their week has been like. Next we typically have a discussion topic of the day, which we will talk about for the majority of the session. During this time members are encouraged to join in but not required to do so. Other times we have played games, or done activities/projects that were relevant to the group. We want everyone in our group to feel comfortable and that they are in a safe place with others going through similar experiences." - Michelle Brown, M.A. CIT
"In the adult group, we discuss how each individual’s life is going. We talk about their stressors, their progress, any frustrations or celebrations. Members get to know each other better and offer feedback and support to each other. It’s an hour where you get to be surrounded by like minded people and feel a sense of belonging." - Allie Wojcik, M.A. PLPC
