Writing, especially creatively, can have therapeutic elements such as self-expression, self-reflection, and mindfulness. CWHC’s newest Counseling Group, Write It Out! is a creative, nonfiction counseling group for those who want to explore themselves, their experiences, and their emotions via writing.

In Write It Out!, CWHC Counselors Ethan and Shelley will work with group members as they write creative nonfiction, reflect on, and share their work, reflecting on personal experiences and self-growth. Group time will be spent creating space to utilize some of the creative expression through writing, as well as processing what had come through writing. Writing prompts will be developed based on the group participants, but could include, “Write about a moment that divided your life into before and after.”

Ethan and Shelley will create space for the processing of the elements, themes, and emotions that arise from group members’ writing.

Write It Out! will meet on Fridays from 2-3:15pm for eight weeks beginning on March 29th and ending on May 17th in CWHC's Meeting Room (1025 W Sunnyside Ave. Ste. 201 Chicago, IL 60640).

There is $25 suggested fee, but will slide down based on each individual’s ability to access services. Payment is not required at the time of registration.

Please note that this is not a trauma processing group. The facilitators will contact all registered participants prior to the first group meeting to elaborate on this further, as well as to discuss various payment options.

Space is limited and registration is required. To register, click here.

Alternative Insemination groups

Alternative Insemination (AI) Peer Support Group

Please note: Our AI Peer Support Group will be taking a short break for the months of November and December. The group will resume meeting in January 2019.

Join CWHC for an ongoing, drop-in, peer-led Alternative Insemination (AI) support group on the fourth Tuesday of each month! 

Not only an opportunity for those interested in AI to talk with people who have experienced the process firsthand, the AI Peer Support Group offers the chance for those currently doing inseminations to share with and support others who are going through the same process.

Come to CWHC's meeting room, at 1025 W. Sunnyside, and meet other families who have had (or are expecting!) children through donor insemination.

Register at any time, but at least five days before a meeting. For more information, contact the Alternative Insemination Program at 773-935-6126 x223 or via email.
