I’m excited to facilitate the upcoming Daring Way™ group this month right here in Chicago. This group will be held in a weekend format, to make it more busy people who have a hard time setting aside a couple of hours each week for 8-weeks. I will be holding this group at my office, located at 3047 N. Lincoln Avenue on Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26. The group is slightly condensed to allow it to be held for two days only. Normally when we facilitate a weekend group we start on Friday afternoon and run through Sunday. I’ve had a lot of feedback that the Friday afternoon is difficult for people, so I’ve been able to bring it down to 2-days only, which has also reduced the cost to only $600 per person (Less than $50 per hour, since cost also goes to supplies and snacks).
The flyer for the group is attached to this entry (click on the picture). If you are interested in joining the group or know someone who is, please let me know right away. (773 372-4111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.) Spaces are limited and the group is only a couple of weeks away, so please contact us as soon as you can. For your convenience a registration form is available on my website at www.compatiblecounseling.com.
Although I have discussed the Daring Way in previous entries, for those who are not familiar with the program, The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past twelve years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame. Her groundbreaking research has been featured on PBS, NPR, CNN, and Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sunday. Further information is available at www.brenebrown.com.
