Caregiver Support Group meeting – Feb 14th @12:30 or Feb 15th @ 7:30PM

Dr. Meg Lytton and Winnie Shaw Hope LCSW are aware of interest in a Quarter wide Caregiver Support Group. This can include discussion of feelings, sharing of information and possible speakers. To start, we want to get a sense of the range of interests. To this end, we are planning two hybrid sessions to gain a sense of how to move forward. We will have the following questions as a springboard for discussion:

  1. For whom do you give care? Age? Diagnosis?
  2. What are the joys?
  3. What are the frustrations?
  4. What supports will be most meaningful to you?

We will hold the first session 2 sessions: Tuesday February 14 at 12:30 PM and Wednesday February 15 at 7:30 PM in person at Haverford Meeting Forum Room or by zoom (link below). Please contact Winnie Shaw Hope at [email protected] if interested. We also recognize when you are in the midst of care giving, you cannot always plan ahead nor keep to commitments. If you are at all interested in the formation of this group but cannot attend those times, please reach out to Winnie Shaw Hope at the contacts given above.

Forum: Dialogue Across Conflicts on September 11

We sometimes experience painful conflicts with loved ones, family members, friends, co-workers or members of our community. In the world we see that navigating such conflicts can be difficult, often leading to the cessation of communications, turmoil in relationships, pain, anger, hostility and even violence. The ability to open dialogue for ourselves and others in face of conflicts can create pathways to new learning and to deeper understanding. Dialogue is a foundation of conflict resolution, to building and maintaining loving relationships and to promoting peace. Yet opening to dialogue can be challenging, especially when conflicts emerge from different values and/or life experiences. This forum, facilitated by David Castro, will offer practical strategies for opening pathways to dialogue. David has more than twenty years of experience training leaders in dialogic approaches to conflict resolution and team building. The forum will start after worship services at approximately 11:20 AM on Sunday September 11th.
