What we're about
Awkward... is a support group for adults who are just that, awkward. This group teaches perspective taking, social awareness, self-awareness, and emotional regulation using strategies from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Brief Solutions Based Therapy, and Mindfulness.
Awkward… is a group where you can find help and support in a small group setting with like-minded people. Although it may seem counter-intuitive to have a GROUP for people who are nervous or uncomfortable about being around other people, a group is the best place to learn new communication skills and PRACTICE them in a safe, and nonjudgmental environment. (Don’t worry, they’ll be nervous too.)
