The holiday season can be a time of joy and celebration, but it can also bring forth grief, stress, and other challenges. At Yellow Chair Collective, we understand the importance of mental health and well-being, especially during this time of year. That’s why we are thrilled to announce the launch of our YCC Workshops—a series of interactive sessions designed to empower you with strategies you can use to navigate the holiday season with confidence and resilience.
Our YCC Workshops are facilitated by our experienced therapists and are a fantastic way to learn about crucial mental health topics while fostering a sense of community with your fellow attendees. Our goal is to provide accessible and insightful guidance to support you on your mental health journey during emotional times.
YCC Community Workshops
This year, we’ve curated a special series of workshops to offer support during this holiday season. We’ve carefully chosen topics that often pose challenges when gathering with friends and family, such as managing emotions, navigating complex family dynamics, addressing disordered eating habits, and dealing with burnout. These workshops are designed to equip you with the knowledge and tools to help you thrive during the holidays.
Our workshop offerings this year include the following:
- “Family Dynamics: Uncover & Release Your Role Self” will explore family roles, identify patterns inherent in different roles, and offer strategies for living beyond these roles.
- “Family Dynamics: Boundaries, Communication, & Other Skills” will look at the process for setting boundaries, and the communication and self-compassion skills needed for doing so.
- “Making Peace with Food & Your Body” will examine difficult relationships with body image and food, and will offer tools for building a sense of freedom from body standards.
- “Burnout Prevention & Recovery” will discuss the processes involved in preventing, managing, and recovering from burnout.
Condensed Support Group Topics
Some of our workshops are based on our popular support group offerings. These condensed sessions are perfect for individuals who may not have the time or financial resources to commit to a multi-week support group. They also provide an excellent opportunity to get a sneak peek into what our support groups entail, making it easier to decide if they’re right for you.
Even if you’ve previously participated in a YCC support group on a similar topic, our workshops offer a valuable refresher on the material covered in our groups. It’s a chance to revisit and reinforce the strategies and insights you’ve gained in a shorter, more focused format.
For Asian & Asian American Adults
Our workshops are open to Asian and Asian American adults aged 18 and above. We believe in creating a safe and supportive space for our communities to address our unique mental health needs. We understand that Asian American family dynamics and expectations can be particularly complicated and stressful, so we aim to be as culturally sensitive and responsive as possible in all of our offerings.
At YCC, we are committed to promoting mental well-being and providing valuable resources to our communities. Our YCC Workshops are just one way we aim to make mental health education and support more accessible to all. We invite you to embark on this journey with us and equip yourself with the resources to help you thrive during the holiday season and beyond.
Flexibility for Your Well-being
We understand that everyone’s needs and schedules are different. That’s why we offer you the flexibility to choose the workshops that resonate with you the most. Whether you want to attend just one workshop or immerse yourself in all of them, the choice is yours, and you can join us from the comfort of your own home.
There are no geographical restrictions–you can join us from anywhere in the world. All our workshops will be conducted online via Zoom, making them accessible from the comfort of your own home.
