Gratitude Group Program (6-Week Series)
Fridays, February 5-March 19 (no class Feb 19)
Gratitude is positively associated with better physical health, improved relationships, and greater life satisfaction. Although most people believe that it’s important to be grateful, practicing gratitude consistently is considerably harder for many of us. The Gratitude Group Program was developed by Dr. Joel Wong, an IU professor of counseling psychology, to address the how of gratitude – practical strategies to cultivate gratitude in our lives. Group activities include brief lectures, experiential activities, group sharing, and journaling. Homework includes daily gratitude journaling.
Guidelines for participation:
- Open to full-time IU employees.
- Commit to attending all 6 group sessions.
- Commit to weekly gratitude journaling homework.
Orientation details: A half-hour individual orientation meeting with a group facilitator is required before the group program begins (will be scheduled during the weeks of Jan 25 and February 1)
Facilitated by: Kuo Deng and another counselor; School of Education, Center for Human Growth; Graduate students from the counseling and counseling psychology with faculty supervision
