Therapeutic Support Groups

*** NAVIGATING LIFE TRANSITIONS ***

I am facilitating a  monthly adult  support group to help you navigate challenging lifestyle transitions, for example; managing your or a loved one’s health and body related changes,  changes in intimate relationships, divorce, and career.

I combine the uses of sharing deep feelings,  meditative and creative exercises, and encourage  active group input. Drawing upon my years of experience as a therapist, group facilitator, and graduate psychology instructor,   I gently help you to examine limiting  patterns, and support you in uncovering strengths. The aim is for you to gain more  access to your innate  emotional, creative  and spiritual gifts.

  • Meets in Oakland
  •  One Sunday per month from 3 to 4:30p.m. (Occasionally the date is changed to accommodate all members).
  • Fee for group is $50.00 per session.  Email for more info: deborahyarock@gmail.com

***  HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS GROUP ***

I am facilitating a monthly group for holistically oriented health care providers to explore and deepen your understanding of the personal impact of direct client / patient work.

This is a small eclectic group of psychotherapists, nurses, doctors, social workers, acupuncturists, and bodywork practitioners, gathered for connection and opportunity to address the intersection between client care and self-care. The group will bring forward not yet thought of solutions through creatively designed exercises, dialogue, and the uses of imaginative process.

 Topics and Focus Examples:

  • Understanding/managing emotional overload, vicarious trauma, and work stress
  • Dealing with the impact of systems, colleagues, and patient/ family relationships
  • Helping clients and patients understand and navigate the connections between   psychological and physical health (and more….)

Continuing Education Credits available for Nurses.

When: Our monthly meetings are held on Sundays. Occasionally the monthly date will change to best meet the groups’ needs. Please contact me for the next meeting date.

Time: 3p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
