Navigating the Neurotypical World
The term “Neurodivergent” describes people whose brain difference affect how their brian works, especially in areas such as sociability, learning, attention, mood and other mental functions. Neurodivergence is not a disorder or an illness, but it does come with its challenges when we’re living in world that was made for and by neurotypical folks. Knowing the traits of ADHD, Autism, PTSD, or OCD isn’t enough to address the physical, mental and emotional impact of them on our daily lives.
This group is designed to create a space for neurodivergent folks to discuss the impacts of these traits; the anxiety, the low self-esteem, and self of helplessness that can develop over time, as well as a space where we can grow and learn from each other, and get support related to the barriers we face in the everyday world. We will explore some specific topics related to neurodivergence and we will encourage sharing of personal challenges and successes. The goal of the group is to learn tools from peers to manage, or lean into, the traits of our neurodivergence, and to develop self-compassion and self-acceptance.
There is no formal diagnosis or referral required for this group; if you think you could benefit from being here, we would be happy to have you join us.
