Humantold Group Workshops
Being a human is hard work, and no one is meant to do it alone. We offer Group Workshops for individuals looking to share their personal struggles and experiences with like-minded people in a supportive environment that is guided by a professional therapist. These workshops cultivate connection, empathy, and emotional support through group learning around a specific topic. Together, attendees learn new skills that help them navigate the human condition.
Group workshops are free. If you would like to contribute to our ongoing work, donations will be accepted.
You may sign up for just one group workshop or the whole series. If you miss the first week of a series, you are still welcome to attend the following weeks.
Asian Support Group
We want to create a safe and inclusive space for Asians to share their stories, connect with their communities, and support each other in this challenging time. No matter if you are a new immigrant, or an Asian American being on this land for generations, or an international student, this is your space! Join us if you are looking for support, opportunities to relate to people who share similar experiences, or learning coping skills.
Introduction: This session will focus on getting to know each member of the group and develop a sharing space without fear of judgement.
