Community Engagement

There are several types of group experiences, all of them valuable and each offering unique opportunities for connection and growth to participants.  Here’s an overview of the groups I have designed and run, both in community as well as corporate settings.

Educational Groups:

Educational groups focus on providing information about specific topics in order to have direct application to people’s lives.  The goal of attending this type of group is to instill self‐awareness and to learn options for improved coping, growth,

change, and adjustment.  The intention is that attendees will enhance their knowledge about the topic by learning about their particular condition, such as depression, and reducing symptoms.  The format in this type of group is lecture.


Psychoeducational Groups:

Psychoeducational groups have the same purpose and goals as educational groups.  However, in this setting, the format is interactive.  Although people are asked not to speak specifically about their personal lives and situations, general discussion and questions are encouraged.


Here are some educational and psychoeducational groups I have designed and presented over the years:


  • Showcasing the Treasures of Older Adult Wisdom in Storytelling

  • Critical Incident / Trauma / Grief, Loss, and Bereavement groups

  • Weight Loss Readiness

  • Relaxation for Better Health

  • Successful Problem Solving:  Creating Opportunities in the Midst of Challenges Conflict Resolution in the Workplace

  • The Healthy Work Day

  • Emotional Well-Being

  • Balancing Work and Your Personal Life

  • Relaxation Exercises that Work

  • Establishing Healthy Lifestyles

  • Thinking Your Way to Healthy Eating

  • Health and Wellness in the New Year

  • Raising Healthy Kids: Emotional Eating

  • The Relationship with Me, Myself and I
