Community Townhall : Building Resilience
A FREE weekly Tuesday 7:30 PM EST class.

What skills do we need to develop to weather the current crisis, survive it, and learn from it. This free weekly introduction online discussion will be chaired by Christine Carville the co-founder of Resilience Lab and will introduce the key concepts of resilience and how we can apply them in today’s environment. We will review together the key issues and questions that we are facing in NYC today as the center of the US Covid crisis, and how we can collectively support each other.

Support Group #1 :Resilience in the time of Corona - Athletes' edition
Starting on May 2: an 8 weeks support group : Saturday 1pm EST.

A support group for runners in the time of Corona.
What we talk about when we do not talk about running.
Whether you have been compelled to alter your training routine or the races and events you’ve been training towards have been cancelled or postponed, it isn’t uncommon to be feeling a certain amount of grief during this unprecedented time.

Support Group #2 : Building Resilience to get to the other side
Starting on May 4: an 8 week support group : Monday 1pm EST.

Are you waking up each morning, or in the middle of the night with a sense of panic or general anxiety? How long will this last? Will there be jobs? Will I be laid off? Do you feel a sense of grief and loss? If you are struggling with cycling concerns about your finances, the economy, your health, the health of your loved ones or the health and safety of those less fortunate than you, this support group is for you.

Support Group #3 : Sobriety in the Time of Corona
Starting on April 7: an 8 week support group : Tuesday 11am EST.

A support group on addition and sobriety in the time of Corona: can you resist everything but temptation?
Sobriety is challenging on its own; we know this. Sobriety in these unthinkable times will be especially difficult. For anyone who is looking for ongoing support in maintaining or embracing sobriety, this group will provide expert support, tools and resources to stay on the right track.

Support Group #4 : Parenting in the Time of Corona
Starting on April 30: an 8 week support group: Thursday 7:30pm EST.

A support group for parents in the time of Corona: Can you create a space for you while you are holding structure for everybody else?

Are you expecting a new addition to your family? Are you home schooling for the first time? Or home schooling while trying to also work from home? If you are learning how to co-work with a partner or roommate, learning how to home school your child or welcoming a baby, home life during the pandemic can be especially fraught and stressful. Join us to discuss these concerns.

Support Group #5: Navigating Quarantine Blues, Stress, and Loneliness
Starting on May 5: An 8 week support group: Tuesday 7pm EST.

Whether you are physically isolated or just feeling alone, it’s normal to be overwhelmed by the emotional ups and downs related to COVID-19. Suddenly being forced into this “new normal” has led to many questions: How long will this last? What will life be like after this? Is it okay to relax or should I be doing more? Topics will range from communicating and setting boundaries with friends, families, roommates, and coworkers; coping with distressing feelings; adjusting to a lack of physical interaction; and managing professional life.

Support Group #6: Queer Cohabitation in Quarantine
Starting on May 4: an 8 weeks support group : Monday 8pm EST.

This group is for queer people who are isolating with their partners (or roommates) during quarantine who need a place to work through the fears, anxieties, and frustrations that come with such continuous stressful proximity. Either both parties or just one member of the relationship are encouraged to attend. The aim is that together we will create a safe community in which to share the challenges and frustrations that come with such continuous and perhaps stressful proximity.

Support Group #7: Women Support Group
8-week online women’s group

During this time of uncertainty and heightened stress, it is important to come together and support each other.

This 8-week online women’s group will provide a safe space to share personal experiences, unpack emotions, and examine negative thought patterns that contribute to distress. Each group will focus on a theme (identified by group members) and include a guided mindfulness activity. Women will leave the group with a “toolbox” of effective coping skills to carry with them.

Support Group #8: CXOs Support Group
Leadership in the time of Corona

Our support group will examine how, if our new socially-distant-world is used wisely, being, quite literally forced, to slow down can be used to achieve and position your company not only to survive but also to succeed.

We will focus on relationship dynamics, starting with a dialogue on our ability to understand behavior in terms of underlying intentions and mental states – wishes, beliefs, values, goals, desires, feelings and thoughts.

Therapy Group #1: DBT Group

How long will this last? How should you manage your health, the health of your loved ones or the health and safety of those less fortunate than you? Topics will include all things health and wellness, ranging from boundary setting with friends, family and roommates for privacy and safety concerns to establishing and negotiating routines with partners.

The group will meet weekly for 60 minutes for 8 consecutive weeks to discuss these concerns as well as provide tools and resources to help members draw upon and build resilience through this period of heightened uncertainty and dramatic change.

Support Group #7: Women Support Group

This 8-week online women’s group will provide a safe space to share personal experiences, unpack emotions, and examine negative thought patterns that contribute to distress.

Support Group #8: CXOs Support Group
Leadership in the time of Corona

Our support group will examine how, if our new socially-distant-world is used wisely, being, quite literally forced, to slow down can be used to achieve and position your company not only to survive but also to succeed.

We will focus on relationship dynamics, starting with a dialogue on our ability to understand behavior in terms of underlying intentions and mental states – wishes, beliefs, values, goals, desires, feelings and thoughts.

There are two ways to view the world during a time of crisis: to let the fear paralyze you into a downward spiral of negative thoughts or to shift the time and energy that it takes to keep your thoughts in a state of fear by embracing this forced moment to “take a beat” and to re-evaluate your company from soup to nuts.

When leaders work and make company decisions from the brain’s prefrontal cortex, where critical thinking and rational thoughts are evoked, rather than the brain’s amygdala, where fear is found as well as our fight or flight response, issues can be resolved at the root and business strategies can be put in place with the company’s long-term success in mind.

We will address the root cause of business issues that executives face by providing a safe and confidential space to finesse communication styles, work through feelings of isolation, identify triggers, build self-esteem, resolve self-worth blocks, re-work an internal company vision, conduct inner-child work, strategize around conflict resolution, and apply psychotherapeutic modalities (such as CBT and DBT) to manage anxiety and environmental stressors. These essential conversations and clinical tools provide leaders with the opportunity to tap into and develop their relationship intelligence, tackle hurdles with clarity of mind, anticipate and prepare for unforeseen circumstances, and continuously view each day as an opportunity for growth.

We have been in your shoes and we have the clinical expertise to support your leadership skills to move through these critical moments in a way that preserves your mental health and empowers you to perform with the clarity of mind to hire, produce, and execute with optimal results.
