    Positively re-frame your experience of transition!

    Laid Off Calgary meetings provide connection, support and empowerment during these economically challenged times.The ask of you is that you register in advance (here in eventbrite) and note that in the Laid Off Calgary meetings we respect confidentiality and time of each other, we are non-judgemental, we listen, and we share from our own experiences.

    ** Please note: the meeting starts on the advertised time, if you may be running more than 5 minutes late or may not be able to attend, please contact me in advance so we can reschedule you for another meeting **

    The group meeting is 90 minutes. These meetings are open to first-timers and regulars.

    We start by establishing some ground rules for the discussion then the facilitators invite conversation. There is a psychoeducational component (e.g. positive thinking strategies, learning about the stress response, finding resilience, grief process) with a key takeaway each week. With peer support participants can learn from others facing similar issues, feel more connected to others, pick up interpersonal skills and internalize lessons.

    Group size is capped to 12 participants each meeting.


    FAQs


    Do I need to attend every session?

    You can choose what meetings to attend for when it suits your schedule. If you need to cancel just let us know ahead of time (you can log back into eventbrite if you provided an email/password when registering for a meeting, and/or you can email laidoffcalgary@gmail.com to let us know if you need to cancel). We ask that if you attend that you please arrive just prior to the meeting and stay for the full 90 minutes to ensure that you and other participants get the most out of the session.


    What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

    On street parking at the library. Public transport options are available.

    Note: this event is NOT provided by Calgary Public Library. This event is run independently by volunteers.


    Do I need to print my ticket?

    No need to print. We ask that you do register to secure a seat as we have limited space to make for the most optimum experience for everyone.

    Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

    For any questions you can contact the event organizer: Bianca Sinclair by confidential email to laidoffcalgary@gmail.com or visit our website www.laidoffcalgary.com
