You asked, we listened! New, north Calgary location. From the new year we will have a regular time/location and will discuss this at the first group meeting in December.
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.
The facilitator ensures those who wish to talk can have a chance to share, or simply listen and hold space for others.
On some meetings we have special guests/industry experts attend and co-faciliate with Bianca.
Group size is capped to 12 participants each meeting.
