HIV Support Group Body Positive/Houston (PB/H) is starting a new cycle of Peer Counseling Support Groups for HIV positive individuals with an informational meeting planned for Tuesday, April 2 at 7:00 p.m. at 1475 West Gray, the Multi-Service Center. Participation is free of charge. PB/H has successfully operated a peer counseling program since 1988. Each group lasts nine weeks. The weekly meetings are facilitated by trained leaders, who are HIV positive, under the supervision of a licensed psychotherapist. Each group has ten to twelve individuals. Based on a training manual developed at BP/H. some of the topics regularly covered include: working with your doctor; healing alternatives: relationships; lifestyle issues; stress reduction; and relaxation. The group ultimately decides democratically the contents of each 90 minute session. Each group is a closed and confidential unit, therefore no new members are added after the group has started. The meetings are casual and all materials necessary will be provided. The basic objective is for clients to share information and feelings with other clients that have similar life issues. Studies have shown a greater degree of participation and satisfaction in counseling when clients can more easily relate or bond with other participants rather than be lectured or quizzed by a therapist. The facilitator serves only to keep the group on track, adhere to certain courtesies and acts as a referral source for further information. If interested in participating or if you want more information about peer counseling, contact PB/H at 524-2374.
