The Benefits of Joining the 7Chairs’ Group Facilitator Community
It is said that a wise person learns from his mistakes. A wiser one learns from others’ mistakes. But the wisest person of all learns from others’ successes. —Zen proverb adapted by John C. Maxwell
We are living in a time like no other. Over the past few months the call to come together to flatten the COVID -19 curve within communities has been loud and clear. We all know that this virus has deadly impacts on the body. But what about the mind? Fear of getting sick, isolation due to quarantine and social distancing, as well as the harsh realities of an economic downturn have had serious effects on our nation’s mental health.
As a result of these daily stressors, demand for online therapy is growing at an unprecedented rate. And with decades of research illustrating the positive outcomes of group therapy, the demand for online group therapy is growing at rates almost too fast to keep up with.
We Are Leaders in the Field of Online Support
7Chairs is leading the charge to flatten the mental health curve by providing online, professionally facilitated emotional support groups for a variety of life challenges. Our mission is to remove the stigma and barriers to care associated with mental health. At 7Chairs our team strives every day to ease the suffering of others by making affordable mental health care accessible to all.
As leaders in the field of online emotional support groups, we know the benefits of group therapy first hand. Yet, despite helping thousands of people in need of support, we still are amazed by the initial reactions of our group members when they describe their feelings after their first group meeting. Our group members describe a much needed feeling of relief and will often remark that “Until I met with my group, I felt as if I was the only one with my problem and the associated thoughts and feelings.”
The ability to run online therapy groups is a special skill which requires professional training. At 7Chairs we recognize this. As a result, we provide evidence based training, tools, and resources at no cost to our group facilitator community. Our community of facilitators is the heart and soul of 7Chairs.
