Neuroqueer Nerd-Out

Neurodiversity & Queer Affirming Supportive Book Group

Why a book group?

Being in a process of self-discovery and self-acceptance often involves a lot of unknowns. Sometimes those unknowns are the type of unknowns you'd go to therapy to dig into.

 

A supportive book group is not therapy.

 

Sometimes those unknowns are related to gaps in information. In your personal growth process you might benefit from new information and new perspectives (or reminders of what you already know).

That's what the neuroqueer nerd-out is for.

We'll dig into reads about neurodivergence, queer identities, and related experiences.

You do not need to be queer or neurodivergent to join the group. Allies are welcome. You do need to be curious, open and know that we don't speak for others and value lived experience.

What to expect

01

Introductions & Boundaries

Who we are, why we're here, and what we (as a group) can do to keep things supportive. 

02

Reading

Prior to group, you're encouraged to read a chapter or section that's most relevant to you. Join the section you registered for whether you read or not!  The non-linear format of the group is designed for you to jump in. In group, we'll hear a reading prior to...

03

Relating / Responding

You're invited to reflect on the reading you read prior to group, or the one read by the group facilitator, relating it to your experience. You and the other group members are encouraged to offer mutually supportive feedback.

04

Reflection / Recap

We'll prepare to transition from time in group to what comes next. As you prepare to leave the session, your feedback is welcome to collaboratively create a supportive experience.

What book group is not...

Book groups are not therapy. They are an outreach activity of Divergent Path Wellness and are not a substitution for mental health treatment. Book groups are open to the general public and do not establish a client/therapist relationship with Divergent Path Wellness or its associates.
