A supportive space to plan & practice responding to real life issues.
- 20 US dollars$20
- Online Workshop
This session adapts based on its participants and their needs, but generally sessions focus on real life situations people will encounter and helps them to workshop how to regulate and manage themselves through the difficult scenario. Participants can come in with a specific issue they’d like help to workshop, or we have a series of scenarios prepared, such as job interviews, first dates, college admissions interviews, telling your parents something scary, standing up to a bully, breaking up with someone, or quitting a job. Facilitator and fellow participants offers constructive guidance and feedback to help the individual play out the scene and develop strategies for problem solving or self-advocating in real time. Improvisation workshops are enjoyable and valuable for anyone of any age. This workshop is generalized for an adult population, and is designed to be inclusive, meaning encouraged for neuro-typical, autistic and special needs populations alike. We all benefit from interacting and learning from each other. Please remember to be kind and supportive with your feedback. These facilitated group discussions are a safe space for people with similar circumstances to discuss unique challenges, frustrations, joys and insights that occur within their group. Ground rules include no dominating the conversation, no shaming, respect for all, and confidentiality. Groups often find a cathartic and heartwarming balance between vulnerability, shared humor and support. Note: If you are interested this workshop for an adolescent or a child, please message me and we can schedule a youth-focused session.
