About this Event
Stronger Together is a psychoeducational and peer support group for teens and young adults (age 14 - 22) that will introduce tools that can be used to navigate everyday challenges. Professional clinicians facilitate the 8 weekly sessions. Skills include interpersonal effectiveness, conflict resolution, self-determination and self-efficacy. The group emphasizes positive peer supports as a context for strengths-based growth. A light dinner will be served each evening. Regular weekly attendance is expected.
The group will meet in person on the following Thursdays from 6:30-8:00pm and will be led by Karen Chaudry, LCSW:
Sept. 28, Oct. 5, 12, 19, 26, and Nov. 2, 9, 16, 2023
The group will focus on strengthening social engagement through conversation, and activities. The group will feature a topic each week related to issues teens and young adults often face such as mental health challenges, peer interactions, healthy relationships and boundaries, as well as other topics chosen by the group. The group will offer participants a chance to practice social skills, learn from one another, and get feedback from peers and group leaders. Group leaders will foster an environment of acceptance and members will share as much as little as they like.

She has led many groups and provided individual therapy for children, teens and adults.
