Groups and Psychotherapy for the Latinx community in Mountain View
Emotions in Harmony will host 10 Groups on virtual sessions - some once a week or some twice per month. All sessions will be held in Spanish, with a duration of 1.5 hours, and have a limit of 15 participants.
The total duration of the project will be a year.
The goal for this project is that participants have an emotionally safe space to share and shape their stories, using the psychoeducational tools given by the professionals to heal their emotional distress through their life story.
On the other hand, we wil also dedicate a part of the project funding into psychotherapy services, where our goal will be the betterment of the overall emotional life of the individual.
