Bouncing Back: A group to help you develop Resilience, Optimism, and Compassion


Bouncing Back:
A group to help you develop Resilience, Optimism, & Compassion

We can’t avoid the fact that life is full of challenges, but what we CAN control is our ability to recover from and even thrive in the face of adversity. In this 9 week group, you’ll tap into the power of the expressive arts (visual art, music, collage, movement, drama, journaling) to develop optimism, compassion, and resilience skills that can continue to improve the quality of your life long after group ends!
