November 13th 6-7:30PM – Crisis within a Crisis: Coping tips for Couples enduring the chronic stress of Infertility
Guest Speaker: Meg Sullivan, MA. LMSW
During the month of November the Circle of Hope and PCOS groups will hold a combined support meeting in the lobby of the Syracuse CNY Fertility Office.
Please join us for an evening of community brought together for the common purpose of Healing the chronic relationship strain inherent in the process of conceiving with ART. Learn why couples often polarize when they need each other the most and ways to overcome this knee jerk reaction to overwhelming stress. Discuss the often gender-related differences in coping skills and ways to bridge in to common understanding. A diagnosis of infertility and the experience of miscarriage are referred to as multidimensional losses which deeply affect the psyche, body, mind, soul and identity. At this support meeting we will create an experience of multidimensional healing that will instill in you a new idea, energy, and/or behavior to improve your response to stress, loss and the pain of not knowing what lies ahead.
