Description: Processing trauma and recognizing patterns requires unlearning messaging we were taught both implicitly and explicitly. Distinguishing the space between what we were taught and what we know for ourselves reveals the authentic self. This group is a chance to sit in the unfamiliar outside of black and white thinking, to find your values, morals, and build your sense of self.
As a book club group, we will be reading Life Isn’t Binary by Meg-John Baker and Alex Iantaffi. By discussing six social constructs; sexuality, gender, relationships, bodies, emotions, and thinking, we will be able to better understand the coping skills and patterns that were learned across the lifetime. Trauma recovery requires adapting new ways of thinking and letting go of concepts that were assigned to us. By deconstructing the binaries, we were taught, you are open to new patterns, behaviors, and coping skills. This group is a space to question the messaging of the cultures we were raised in, and find your autonomy in your beliefs and sense of self.
