Wellness groups, classes, seminars, and workshops
About our wellness groups and classes:
Sometimes, bringing together people who have gone through similar experiences can be a powerful method for learning and growth. By working together and listening, we can help and support one another. In our wellness groups and classes, the dynamic is different from talking with friends and family about a problem. Well-intentioned people in your life may simply not be able to relate, or may not have the knowledge to help, or may be sidetracked by their relationship with you.
All of the wellness groups and classes at Olympic Psychology Services aim to balance education and personal growth with kinship and empathy. The groups are facilitated by experienced, doctoral-level clinicians who provide expert information and guidance. However, because our group offerings are not therapy groups, they are not covered by health insurance plans.
Our current offerings:
Dungeons and Dialogues
Grab your swords and get ready to have an adventure! This group is geared towards improving social skills, engaging in social interactions, and addressing social anxiety through the game of Dungeons and Dragons. The game is inherently social, and this group is designed to facilitate positive social engagement in a fun and natural way. Time will also be provided for the group to debrief and discuss each gaming session. This group is open to new and experienced D&D players.
