Peer Support groups offer a safe place to discuss your feelings with other women in similar life circumstances.
If you're feeling confused, overwhelmed, angry or frustrated, join a Peer Support Group. Peer Support offers discussion groups for women who share common concerns. You will have an opportunity to meet others who are experiencing normal but sometimes frustrating, confusing or distressing situations.
Each group is six sessions (once a week for six consecutive weeks) and is led by two professionally trained facilitators. Sessions begin at 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted and are held at the NCJW Center for Women, 70 South Orange Avenue, Suite 120, Livingston, NJ 07039. Daytime Groups are also available.
Young Widows, Wednesday, April 15
Women Coping with Separation & Divorce, Thursday, April 16
Widows (daytime), Thursday, April 30, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The fee for each 6 week session is $45.
Women who have participated in Peer Support say...
"We made new friends who understand-who we could reach out to-who share our feelings, our problems and our questions."
"Just being able to compare my situation with other women in a non-judgmental setting helped me to cope."
"The women in the group helped me to deal with my loneliness and feelings of anger."
"I was lost and alone. The widows' group saved my life. I continue to meet with the women in my group and we have become good friends."
