This group is a psychoeducational and process Group, it is an open group with new members joining in at any point in the 12 week curriculum. As understanding and practice of the material increases group members learn to safely share thoughts and feelings in a supportive environment, give and receive support, and make progress toward their personal goals that brought them to group. The group is based on the work of Brene Brown, PhD, LCSW, as outlined in her book The Gifts of Imperfection, and on the work of Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., as outlined in his book, Mindsight. Brene Brown's work around the issues of shame resilience, authenticity, the power of vulnerability and true connection with others, dovetails nicely with Daniel J. Siegel's work on interpersonal neurobiology and the 'mysteries of the interface between mind, brain, and relationships'.
