ADULT SUPPORT GROUPS

SABIS offers a variety of weekly support groups. These groups encourage connections and peer support for brain injury survivors, as well as a chance to be social and access information and resources. SABIS’ groups are 1.5 hour sessions that run in three month semesters. Please note that you must be an active SABIS client in order to attend groups.

Registration for SABIS Fall Groups is now open.

Men's Group - Tuesdays, 10:00 – 11:30 am (September 12 - December 12, 2017)

 

This is a great group for men looking to discuss any challenges they may be having in their lives. Topics in this group are open and can include well-being, relationships, and dealing with day-to-day difficulties. Please note this is a communication group.

 

Drop-in Group - Tuesdays, 1:30 – 3:00 pm (September 12 - December 12, 2017)

 

Looking for an opportunity to make new friends and chat with people in a comfortable space? This group is perfect for those who want to stay connected but are unable to commit to one of our registered groups. Come to as many or as few of these drop-in sessions as you choose. SABIS will not make regular Calgary Access bookings for this group.

 

Women's Group - Wednesdays, 10:00 – 11:30 am (September 13 - December 13, 2017)

 

Empower yourself! Whether you are coping with life changes, difficulties with daily tasks & maybe understanding what steps to take next on your own personal journey, there’s nothing better than sharing these stories & experiences with other women who are going through these same challenges. Please note this is a communication group.

 

Artistic Expression - Wednesdays, 1:30 – 3:00 pm (September 13 - December 13, 2017)

 

The creative process allows individuals to express themselves while increasing self-awareness and well-being. Join other survivors in a fun and relaxing environment as we explore various artistic forms including music, painting, sculpting and drawing. No experience is necessary…the only requirement is that you have an open mind and a positive attitude! Please note this is not a formal art instruction group.

Topics will include: emotional management, stress management, sleep and fatigue, physical wellness, nutrition and much more!
