GPS Group Peer Support Facilitator Training -- Western MA
Learn GPS Group Peer Support© in 3 Days!                                                     If you run support groups or want to, this training is for YOU!                                                  Fridays:  September 28th -- October 26th -- November 2nd  “We are on a life-long journey and it’s easy to feel lost especially at times of transition and challenge.                  GPS Group Peer Support© provides the map to help people find their way.”  We all want to be the best that we can be and we want to face our challenges with integrity, courage and success -- whether we are parents, first generation college students, struggling with health challenges or other kinds of adversities we want the best for our families and for ourselves. However it can be challenging -- we can be overwhelmed, we face systemic societal barriers and life circumstances out of our control, and the daily grind can wear us down. It’s not easy. We deserve and need more support than we get. GPS Group Peer Support© is an integrated and intersectional community-based support group approach that supports the full spectrum of our humanity.  It is designed to support us, whether we are struggling with emotional complications like depression and anxiety, or challenging circumstances like those that parents, first generation college students, and those who are struggling with loss of a loved one or major illness may face. GPS Group Peer Support provides an opportunity for those of us who are the targets of discrimination, internalized oppression and systemic disenfranchisement, like racism, Islamaphobia, heterosexism and other oppressions to address the ways this effects us with honesty, courage and hope.   Please ask if this model would be good for the populations and communities whom you serve and care most about. LEARN THIS INNOVATIVE MODEL GPS Group Peer Support© is an evidence-informed group model that will give you the map to support people in your community. GPS Group Peer Support© is an empowering group experience that provides a safe place for us all  to address the challenges we face, hear from others on the path, gain perspective and strength, and chart a course through challenging times. YOU WILL: Learn how to provide an evidence-informed model that incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness-based stress reduction and psychosocial eduation in a warm and accessible group model Learn group leadership skills to provide trauma-informed, empowering group environments through both didactic and experiential learning modalities   Explore cultural messages and myths  that can undermine confidence, competence and mental health Learn how to provide a population and culturally sensitive, group model for diverse communities Include the values and soul of your community into the heart of GPS Group Peer Support© Merge GPS Group Peer Support© with already-existing educational curricula and learning objectives to enhance deeper engagement SCHEDULE: Friday, September 28th from 9:00am - 5pm Friday October 26th from 9:00am - 5pm  Friday November 2nd from 9:00am - 5pm  LOCATION:  Westfield State University, Westfield, MA WHO WE ARE GPS Group Peer Support© is based on over 15 years of model development by both Annette Cycon and Liz Friedman in their work as the co-founders of MotherWoman and through their development of the MotherWoman Support Group Model.  They are proud to introduce GPS Group Peer Support© and offer a new innovative approach that addresses the multitude of challenges that we all face. As always, Liz and Annette provide an engaging, educational and innovative training experience.   This training is open to experienced and first time group leaders.                                                                               Join us for a "Refresher" if you have attended MotherWoman trainings in the past.                                                                                                               Providers of services to ALL people are invited to participate in this training.
