LEAProject Chronic Illness
Life Challenges Workshop - Guided
on-line group for chronicly ill etc.:
Our groups are made up of participants who are facing chronic
illnesses or life challenges such as Anxiety, Depression, FMS,
MS, CFIDS, divorce, illness or drug use by a spouse or child,
other challenges. Our work differs in that we are not set up
as a forum for complaint, nor do not ask our participants to
forget or ignore their illnesses or ascribe to a particular
treatment, belief, etc. What we DO is to help individuals to
deal with the reality of what's happening with their lives and
move forward in a constructive way. We discourage complaining
as a form of communication
accept limited number of participants
for each group. Each is a "guided" group, with an experienced
facilitator to provide structure
feedback. Workshop groups
communicate via list as well as a password protected area on
line where we can chat in real-time. We are not an "open" group
thus we do not have drop in visitors, petty arguments or flamers.
Participants in both "Women Only"
Co-ed groups are screened
through an application process so that the group in which they
are placed is appropriate for them. No medical care is offered
or implied via this list.
