  5. A Mindful Approach to AnxietyMondays 4:30-6:00pm. beginning January 9, 2012.  Eight weeks.  This group focuses on teaching mindfulness as a means of becoming aware of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that lead us to define and identify ourselves as anxious.  The goal of this mindful approach is to learn how to better manage our uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, not by attempting to control or avoid them, but by inquiring deeply into them and accepting them. If you are interested in learning more about the group, please contact Jane Mortell, MA, LMHC, at jmorte@uw.edu, or Michaela Wehner, BA, M.Ac., at mwehner@uw.edu.

The purpose of this group is to provide a safe, supportive, and affirming environment where individuals can explore thoughts and feelings around sexual orientation. Members can be individuals who are anywhere in the lifelong “coming-out” process, which includes: people who may be uncertain and are questioning their sexual orientation, people who may be coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or queer, and people who struggle with “being in the closet” at work or school, with friends, and with their families.
  7. Process Group For Graduate Women of Color: Thursdays from 1:30 to 3:00, beginning January 12, 2012. The group will emphasize self-awareness, confidence, and self-esteem through growth oriented collaboration and help graduate women of color develop core strengths, which exist within every person.  This group will explore concepts of invisibility, impostor syndrome, perfectionism and issues such as intimacy, relationships, tenure/childbirth and the colored glass ceiling.  This group will work to understand how these issues influence or affect one’s ability to complete graduate school.  For more information contact Dr. Kane at 206-221-2449 or mkanew@u.washington.edu
