Rising Strong™ Boys 8-WEEK GROUP
ACCEPTING MEMBERS NOW!
(based on the book of Brene Brown, Rising Strong.)
Rising Strong™, is based on the simple physics of vulnerability: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. This is a curriculum about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
Dates: Fall 2016
Location: 1002 West Avenue, 3rd Floor, Austin, TX 78701
Facilitators: Vanessa Flores, LCSW, CDWF
We know that boys struggle with allowing themselves to show up and be seen. This group seeks to deal with the pressures of being a teenager, social peer pressure, anxiety, depression and allows students to practice vulnerability by sharing their "fall down" moment 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. Group members will learn about developing the tools and skills to build resiliency in order to own their struggles and connect with friends, family and themselves in a more meaningful way. We will use creative writing , art projects, and movie clips in order to allow group members to recognize what they are feeling, how they make up a story when they are in struggle and how to rewrite the story with a brave new ending.
