Mindfullgtb+ Group for the LGTB+ Community
Develop compassion for the experiences of bullying by helping to grow from the present and stop relying on the past to live from day to day.
Releasing and not “identifying” with negative thinking related to being Lgtb+, working on self-acceptance.
Develop group cohesion and belonging to the Lgtb+ community, creating an identity based on strength and belonging to a group.
Decrease the level of hypervigilance in which this community usually finds itself, due to having suffered continuous harassment, in which they have had to learn to hide in the heterosexist society.
Learn a new way of communication based on mindfulness, to get out of the toxic roles of the dramatic triangle victim-savior-persecutor (transactional analysis), as another way to reduce stress in interpersonal relationships and not only intrapersonal.
To reduce scores on the internalized homophobia and perceived stress scales in participants and increase scores on the “positive” scales.
