Adolescent Gender Exploration Group
WHO: This group is for LGBTQ teens by LGBTQ therapists
WHAT: Our group is about three things:
- Social influence - how peers, friends, culture, social media tells us who to be and how to act. We talk about what it’s like when that doesn’t fit.
- Core safety networks - how we can stand tall in the face of messages that hurt us.
- Strengthening relationships and being resilient - sharing the ways life is hard and getting ideas of how to survive it. Understanding why we feel alone, let down, hurt, or rejected.
HOW: We learn a little, we listen a little, we share a little, we play a little, we eat a little, we practice a little.
WHY: Get support and practice things that help us feel like we are valued and belong.
WHEN: 13 session course - 90 minutes each

RECLAIM’s BIPOC group is a weekly therapeutic processing group for individuals who identify as LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color). The purpose of this group is to build community; process and explore intersecting identities, experiences, culture, and heritage; and commit to personal and collective healing. Group members will have an opportunity to seek, learn, share, and affirm connections to themselves and our communities while unlearning dominant narratives about mental health and healing.
