Online Women’s Group

Group is an opportunity for autistic women to un-mask and be the majority, a time for them to talk about topics that truly matter to them, and a safe place to crowd-source solutions for obstacles in their everyday lives.

Jeanne moderates a bimonthly autistic women’s group at her office in the Kansas City metropolitan area. If you are interested in joining, please contact her. 

Jeanne also moderates a bimonthly online autistic women’s group for clients unable for any reason to drive to Kansas City.

Format

• Topic: Group discussions are based on the needs of the participants. One week prior to meeting, an email solicits any topic preferences amongst the members. From this list, Jeanne selects a topic that is globally beneficial and emails group participants. If no topics are suggested, Jeanne may select a topic.

•Participation Level: Jeanne has no requirements regarding the type or amount of participation in group. If you prefer to listen until you feel comfortable, if you like to actively involve yourself from the beginning, or you are somewhere in these extremes, you are more than welcome.

Method

• Meeting App: Zoom is free and easy to use.

Participants

• Age: Jeanne seeks to group participants based on age ranges and life stages. 

• Background Information: Per member approval, Jeanne shares information such as age, vocation, and marital status. She finds this information is generally helpful for everyone to know prior to starting group. 

• Size: Having moderated groups for 15 years, my experience has shown that a dyad can turn into a semi-private individual session. I prefer groups with at least three participants and no more than six. This size range allows for a healthy array of perspectives and experiences. However, exceptions can be made upon request.

Rules

Rules tend to be specific to each group.  The goal is for everyone to feel comfortable, validated, and respected. Interpersonal problems happen and are typically remedied in group.
