GPS SUPPORT GROUPS ARE EVIDENCE AND TRAUMA INFORMED

GPS Groups incorporate evidence-based approaches of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and Psychosocial Education in a warm and accessible group model. GPS groups are deliberately judgement and advice-free zones where people can be listened to with respect. Participants heal, find their strength and connect with their courage to take conscious steps towards the lives they want to live.

What Support Groups Do:

  • Address challenging situations
  • Have courageous conversations
  • Provide support in times of crisis and tragedy
  • Talk about the impact of racism
  • Build resilience against burnout and workplace fatigue

IMPORTANT SCHEDULING NOTE: We are temporarily pausing our Black Leaders, People in Recovery, Open Support, and Grupo de Apoyo en Español para Latinas support groups through the remainder of the summer so our staff can take a well-deserved break, engage in additional training, and partake in professional development opportunities.


We look forward to seeing you again when our groups reopen in the fall!


In the meantime, please stay connected with GPS through our email newsletter and social channels.

Testimonials

"I have led groups for my entire career but never before have I found a model that matches the cadence of my heart. It incorporates a social justice focus in an accessible, welcoming way that both facilitators and group members can embrace."

Meredith Pesce, Program Manager, Recovery Residences, Portland ME


"The GPS Model works. It is a powerful community resource, a lifeline of support, validation, perspective and healing that is missing in many people’s lives. GPS also supports group facilitators by providing a reliable structure and road map for us to use when serving the people we care about."

Andrea Guzman, Maya Health Alliance, Guatemala


"Many of us have been leading postpartum groups for moms for years, but without a structure to follow, we were just winging it. GPS is a treasure box and is changing the way we are supporting moms in Arizona."

Carol Sheehan RN, Tucson Postpartum Depression Task Force, Arizona
