Online Peer Group Chat// Toxic Positivity // Thursday 2nd December 2021, 7PM-8:30PM AEDT

Online Peer Group Chat // Toxic Positivity

 

Hello to all of our friends on the Forums!

 

Our next Online Peer Group Chat will be held on Thursday 2nd December, 7 - 8.30pm AEDT. The Topic will be Toxic Positivity.

 

Summary of topic!

Have you ever had someone say to you: 'Lift your chin up! it's not so bad' or maybe 'you can overcome anything with the right attitude!'? These comments are often intended to make us feel better but can actually make us feel worse. This is sometimes called 'toxic positivity'. Join us, in this Online Peer Group to discuss Toxic Positivity, it's impacts and how you might respond!  

 

What to expect:

  • Toxic positivity including what it might mean, how to notice it and how it might impact our experiences
  • How to express genuine optimism when you are overwhelmed by toxic positivity
  • Strengths to help in our interactions
  • How to refocus your thoughts when experiencing toxic positivity 
  • Awesome chats with fellow community members!

 

To join or to submit a question for the group, click here. As always, if you're interested but can't make it you will be able to read the transcript of the group the next day here.  You're also welcome to create a thread here on the Forums to keep the discussion going!

 

Peer Group Chats are hosted outside of the forums, using a platform called Chatwee. To join an Online Peer Group, you will need to register for an account with Chatwee. On the night, follow this link and log in to your Chatwee account before the group starts.

 

Please see this FAQ for any questions you may have. For any issues on the night, please message the moderator of the group on the Chat platform. If you'd like to receive a reminder closer to the event, please support this post & we'll keep you updated 😊

 

Just a reminder: 

This chat will be held at Eastern Daylight Savings time so be sure to adjust the hours in your head when popping it in your calendar, we'd hate for you to miss out!
