WHAT IS A WELLNESS CIRCLE?

 

An Adult Wellness Circle is a group of adults (men, women, veterans, college age, in recovery, at a hospital, young adults, staff within a school or business, retired, etc) that come together for six weeks under the leadership of a facilitator trained in the Adult Wellness Circle Program.  During the six weeks these adults assess their own wellness, decide what area of wellness they would like to pay more attention to, and share and support each other in making positive changes. No matter the type of people in the group, participants are empowered and a supportive community grows.

A Parent Wellness Circle is a group of parents that come together for six weeks under the leadership of a facilitator trained in the Parent Wellness Circle Program.  During the six weeks parents work on increasing their own wellbeing, as we know that the wellbeing of parents directly impacts the wellness of their families. Parents assess their own wellness and decide which of the eight areas of life they would like to pay more attention to to better their family’s life. Additionally they share and support each other in making positive changes. Parents feel empowered and supportive friendships are formed.

A Teen Wellness Circle is a group of teens (at school, camp, youth development center, hospital, recovery, team, etc.) that come together for six weeks under the leadership of a facilitator trained in the Teen Wellness Circle Program.  During the six weeks teens assess their own wellness and the decisions they are making, decide what area of wellness they would like to pay more attention to, and share and support each other in making positive changes. Teens feel empowered and supportive connections are formed.


ONLINE TUTORIALS

Many people from near and far have contacted us to say that they just can’t make a training in Wisconsin, and are wondering what to do to get trained in the skills to run either a six session Parent, Teen, or Adult Wellness Circle

Others have been to the training but are feeling that having a brush up video for each session would help them feel more confident as they run their circles. 

For these reasons we have created video tutorials for everyone.  By downloading the materials, as directed in the tutorial videos, and then following along while listening to the tutorial for the type of wellness circle you want to run (parent, teen or adult), you will be able to confidently run a group. 

If you have any questions at all, please contact Holly Hughes Stoner. holly@samaritanfamilywellness.org
