Services

“Let it Out” – facilitated discussion groups

We will pilot three different closed, facilitated discussion groups online for adults:

  1. who felt Targeted by a sibling in the past or diminished in the present,
  2. who have been Aggressive or dismissive towards a sibling, and would like to change,
  3. who would benefit from a Bereavement group to deal with grief for a sibling who passed recently or long ago.

Who is a sibling? Who do you regard as a sibling? For these services this includes those with shared biological mothers and/or fathers, adopted siblings, those in shared foster care, or those from a shared household. For “only children” and others, a sibling can include a cousin, close friend, or neighbor who is ‘like a brother/sister.’ With social media and digital games, a sibling can include someone online with whom one develops an intimate sibling-like relationship.

Dates and times to be announced.
Contact us if you are interested in joining one of our groups.
