October Group Descriptions 2021

Open Art Studio: This space creates the opportunity to socialize with peers while expressing
ourselves through working on individual and group art projects. We have paints, spin art,
collaging, sketching and drawing supplies, & more.

Morning Check-In: We use this time to share announcements, check in about how we are
doing, what we are looking forward to and what requests we may have for support for the day.

Calming Our Anxiety: We gather to better understand anxiety, and explore different types
and causes of anxiety. We discuss a spectrum of anxious feelings, from that manifested within
ourselves and our thoughts, to reactions to certain surroundings. We explore many different
ways to diffuse our feelings of extreme unease and anxiety.

Positive Thinking: Positive Thinking or an optimistic attitude is the practice of focusing on
the good in any given situation. It can have a big impact on our physical and mental health.
Please join us!

Peer Discussion: Please join us as we pick a topic or two and share our insights with each
other. If you would like, bring a topic you would like to discuss and/or present to the group.
Next Steps: This is a time where we look into what next steps we may want to consider taking
on our life and recovery journeys. We invite folks to share ideas, challenges, goals, etc. and we
look into resources that may be helpful to us along our way.

Monthly Forum: Usually held on the last Thursday of the month, we will be highlighting
opportunities and resources in the community related to education, employment and more.
Afternoon Check in: This gives us an opportunity to check-in about how our day has gone,
what we may be planning, etc.

Music & Art: No experience necessary, just a willingness to have fun in a creative and healing
way! We hold this space for us to make and/or listen to music and get our creative juices
flowing in group and individual art projects. We have a number of instruments including a
keyboard, bongos, and a guitar at PPRC, as well as a large stock of art supplies. You are also
welcome to bring an acoustic instrument and art work in process to work on.

Fun & Games: Having fun is a very important part of our recovery journeys and we have a
number of games onsite to choose from, such as Yahtzee (a big hit), bingo, clue, cards, scrabble
and dominos – and we can always play charades, Pictionary and more!

Body Image & Wellness: Together we come to share our struggles and triumphs related to
how we perceive ourselves, and challenge traditional ideas of what health, beauty and
wellbeing really are. Please come engage in our enriching discussion space as we learn and
grow together.
