Beginning Wednesday evening, Aug. 24 and continuing every Wednesday evening after that, from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m., a brand-new support group for women will begin meeting in the conference room of the Madison Public Library, at 378 NW College Loop.
The group is being organized and hosted by Candida Rogers, and is free and open to all women who wish to attend and talk about the kinds of pressures and stresses they face in their lives as women. Rogers is using her own personal experience to organize this group to help other women, and said the group will address a wide range of topics, from abuse and domestic violence, to stress management, weight loss, marriage, parenting, child care and work-related issues.
The very first meeting on the 24th is a “get-to-know-you” meeting, where women can register with whatever name they would like to use during the group sessions; Rogers will ask that everyone write down goals they would like to reach, but need encouragement for, so she can plan the next meeting to address those issues. After seeing how that meeting goes, she will plan for the third meeting, and from there, the fourth meeting, and so on. Some meetings might even have a guest speaker addressing whatever topics of concern the group has.
The meetings are intended to offer encouragement and support, and anything said in the meetings is private and confidential.
For more information about the support group, email Rogers at firstname.lastname@example.org. For directions to the library, call the attending librarian at 973-6814.
