Recovery Warriors

Funded by Communify

A monthly group that includes activities and strategies for coping and staying connected. This group is facilitated by two practitioners and run online and in person. Careful consideration is made in facilitating this group as it can often be the first time a client engages with EDQ services and gets insight into the counselling interventions used and the community that exists at EDQ. The group aims to support clients until they can move into more intensive therapy and support services. Participants are introduced to various therapeutic and support interventions as well as providing ongoing recovery skills and reminders to help their recovery pathway.

Topics covered include:

  • Understanding and working with emotions
  • Exploring skills to do with opposite actions
  • Relationship building
  • Sensory modulation
  • Connecting values to inner strength
  • The role of society and stereotypes
