WE ARE CONTINUOUSLY DEVELOPING NEW GROUPS AND WORKSHOPS.
Many of our groups will be meeting virtually until further notice.
Starting: August 5, 2021
Anger management is a 10-week curriculum-based group combining classic anger management skills and mindfulness. The group will explore the evolutionary role of anger, when anger is appropriate, the difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness, and how to differentiate between anger, fear, and frustration.
This 6-week group is intended for anyone who has experienced grief and loss (within a year) and is finding their path to grieving in ways that are healthier and offer comfort. As the body is where the emotions dwell and express themselves, the co-facilitators will encourage the utilization of creative interventions, such as movement, dance, art-making, and both verbal and non-verbal storytelling to support the process of grief.
Starting: late-January 2022
This 4-week group is intended for those who are interested in writing, storytelling, activating meaning, creativity, and growth. Special emphasis on questioning normality, reclaiming and re-storying our lives in the face of trauma, and engaging with strengths and inner resources
Feeling overwhelmed and out of control? Years of research shows that Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a powerful and proven intervention that provides you with real-life, take-home skills in 4 areas: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is an 8-week evidence based curriculum targeted to learn meditation strategies to reduce stress, physical pain, and emotional suffering. In this class, we will learn and practice several forms of meditation, as well as integrate new skills of stress-reduction into our daily lives.
Weekly Virtual Meditation Group meets online via our CMP Facebook page on Wednesdays from 6:15-6:30pm CT. Led weekly by Jennifer Klein, MA, NBC-HWC. Jennifer begins each week’s meditation with minimal guidance followed by silent sitting for 10-12 minutes. No experience required.
Recovery Dharma (formerly called Refuge Recovery) is a non-theistic, Buddhist-inspired approach to recovery from addictions of all kinds. The meetings are peer-led and include guided meditations, readings, and group sharing and discussion. Meetings are hosted at CMP (Andersonville location) but are run by Recovery Dharma. At this time, all Chicago-based Recovery Dharma meetings are held online. If you are looking for a meeting please visit: https://recoverydharma.org/meeting-list
