Rising Strong™ for Boys 8-Week Group
-Accepting members NOW!
We know that boys struggle with allowing themselves to show up and be seen for who they are. This group seeks to deal with the pressures of being a teenage boy to include social peer pressure, anxiety, self-worth and healthy relationships. Boys will be given the opportunity to practice vulnerability in a safe space by sharing their "fall down" moment with each other and learn about what it takes to rewrite their story with a brave new ending. This 8-week experiential group is for adolescent boys between the ages of 13 and 16.
Dates: Fall 2017
Cost: $50 a session plus a $50 one time activity fee. A non-refundable deposit of $100 is due before the start of the group to reserve your space.
Facilitator: Vanessa Flores, LCSW, CDWF
All groups are based on the curriculum written by Brene Brown, The Daring Way™.
