“How to Prepare for Joining a Support Group”


We are busy planning some great workshops. Be sure to add your name to our mailing list so you can stay informed about upcoming workshops and offerings. We will share with you our free guide on how to prepare for a support group.

Taking part in a workshop offers you a chance to learn new skills to help you tend to a specific area or issue in life, as well as the opportunity to garner quick support and connect with others with similar experiences or shared interests.  Workshops are similar to support groups in that they provide a safe space to connect with others and learn new skills, but workshops differ in that they are short-term and usually meet only once.

College Readiness Workshop: Preparing to Navigate a New Chapter

The transition to college can feel daunting, and you may be experiencing some anxiety or fear about entering a new environment full of unknowns and uncertainty. Who will my friends be? What will I major in? How will I spend my time? It may also feel like a fresh start or exciting opportunity to reflect on the person you’ve grown into and how you want to show up in a new space.

This workshop is for incoming undergraduate freshman students who may be feeling overwhelmed or who want to take mindful steps to think about their upcoming transition into college. The workshop will support you in beginning to think about what skills, resources, and strengths you already have or can develop to rely on as you navigate what can be a challenging and exciting time period.

You can expect to be in community with others in a similar stage of life who may share similar fears and hopes, as well as space for reflection, envisioning, and skills learning opportunities to help ground and equip you for the beginning of your college career.

Length: 2 sessions
When: Sunday June 2nd & Sunday June 9th from 5:30-7pm EST
Location: Online via zoom
Fee: $75 per session, $150 total

Lizzie Toepler, LMSW will be leading the College Readiness Workshop: Preparing to Navigate a New Chapter.


What Our Clients Are Saying

I was very hesitant to join a group but I also knew I needed the support, so I took the dive and I’m so glad I did! This group was such a special group of people and we formed really close bonds and I learned so much!

What Our Clients Are Saying

My parents encouraged me to join the group even though I wasn’t sure I wanted to. I was so lonely beforehand and now I have this safe space where I can be open and honest and truthful about all I feel, it’s been really important for me.

What Our Clients Are Saying

As a new mom, I was riddled with insecurity, fear, self-doubt and just exhausted. I didn’t think I could find the time to do this group, but I am so incredibly grateful I did. I instantly felt seen, validated and nourished and developed invaluable relationships that I will always cherish.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Groups can be intimidating but I didn’t experience any of that. From the very beginning I felt put at ease and to show up honestly and that my messy self was welcome and valued. Thank you!

What is a workshop?
A workshop is a meeting that is devoted to the intensive exploration and study of a particular topic, issue or theme. All workshops hosted by Bhava Therapy Group are led by a licensed and skilled professional. Most workshops are scheduled for one meeting, but on occasion, a workshop might have two parts, meeting at two different times in entirety. A workshop on a specific focus provides participants the chance to enrich and deepen their understanding of that particular topic, learn new skills or practices and connect with others who have similar experiences and interests.

Who are workshops designed for?
Bhava Therapy workshops are designed for any member of the general population who would benefit from the deeper exploration of topics offered.

How does a workshop differ from a support group?
While both support groups and workshops offer the chance for participants to learn, grow and connect and heal, support groups meet regularly over a longer period of time requiring more of a commitment whereas a workshop meets just once, or at the most, twice.

Can I earn continuing education (CE) credit for a workshop?
Workshops are not approved, intended or designed to provide CE credit to any mental health professional who attends a workshop. Bhava Therapy Group is an accredited provider of continuing education nationally by the ASWB and NBCC, and in New York State by the NYSED, where such credit is awarded on the grounds that certain criteria are met in the development of each class. Our full list of continuing education classes can be found here

Do I have to be in therapy to join a support group?
No, you do not have to be in therapy to join a support group! Support groups are a safe space to explore your emotions and our groups are oftentimes geared towards a specific age group or topic that you have in common. If you have additional mental health support outside of the group that is great, though it is not a requirement to join a group.

What is the cancellation policy?
We understand that life is dynamic and things happen. As such, we provide a 24 hour cancellation policy for anyone who is registered that cannot make the scheduled workshop. In order to cancel your registration, please email to indicate your need to cancel.

What is the refund policy if I can’t attend a workshop I already signed up for?
If you are unable to attend a workshop you have registered and paid for, please email to submit your cancellation and refund request. We are able to provide a refund for the course fee however, we cannot refund any processing fees associated with the purchase of the workshop. Any cancellations or non-attendance to the workshop without a 24 hour notice will not be refunded.

What if I don’t have a credit card or paypal account to pay for the workshop?
To register for a workshop, payment is made at the time of registration and processed through paypal in which you are welcome to use either a credit card or a paypal account. If you do know you do not have either a credit card or a paypal account, please email and she will further assist you in processing your registration.
