Interpersonal Process Groups
You've Got This! (Bibliotherapy Group)
In this weekly bibliotherapy group, we will work with the book You've Got This! by Margie Warrell. This group is designed to help you trust your yourself, stop letting fear hold you back, defy the doubts that limit you, and rise above the challenges ahead to make your aspirations a reality. We will read two chapters of the book every week, and we will discuss the content of the book and find things that are relatable to your life experiences and present struggles.

This group will incorporate an intersectional, culturally sensitive, and LGBTQ+ affirming framework. All genders welcome.
