In our efforts to stay connected in this time of social distancing, Friends is really excited to begin offering Virtual Adults Groups for people who stutter 18 years old or older. These groups will provide a comfortable space for adults who stutter to share stories and laughs during this challenging and stressful time. Details: At this time, the groups will be limited to the first 12 people to sign up. We will definitely work to add more groups in the future if there is enough interest!

Support Groups for Adults | ADDA - Attention Deficit Disorder Association
For many grief brings a feeling of isolation and aloneness. There are times when we want nothing more than solitude, escape, privacy — a quiet place to be alone with our memories and our pain. The thought of facing others—whether family, friends, or coworkers—is unbearable. Grief presents us with a wash of emotion seldom experienced. The depth and breadth of feeling encountered in grief is overwhelming. Sadness, fear, shame, loneliness, anxiety, anger, longing, tiredness, depression, shock, and disbelief are some of the emotions we experience in grief.
Adults – Support Groups & Community Connections Sessions
All of us experience challenges in our adult lives. Group therapy can be a powerful tool for working through experiences and emotions together. The Brookline Center offers dozens of psychotherapeutic and process groups where adults can address issues such as improving relationships and self-image or changing limiting patterns.
We facilitate this experience through a psychodynamic based process group where participants gain support and feedback from their peers and have their own experiences validated. The goal of the group is to teach young adults the necessary social skills to relate to others and build healthy, long lasting relationships. Some of these skills include verbal and non-verbal cues, initiating conversations, making and keeping friends, identifying and coping with social anxiety and dating, as well as provide them a safe space to practice these newfound skills. In addition to these groups, we also offer one-to-one addictions counseling for those striving for recovery. It goes beyond just talking about food and our feelings about the food.
