Support the Support Group Leader Training- Why do you need it?

Teach your leaders how to guide the group away from negativity and towards practical solutions that really help the patients manage their illness and feel better.

Organizations committed to supporting patients and family members dealing with chronic illness, face a universal challenge. Fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, cancer, muscular dystrophy, ataxia, arthritis, Parkinson’s… they all have support groups.

But many of these leaders are volunteers who have the illness themselves, who may not yet have the skills to intervene when the conversation turns negative (or political). It’s not long before attendance drops and leaders feel frustrated. Don’t let this happen to your organization!

I can help you support your group leaders in the skills and moves they need to keep the focus on practical solutions for being with “what is”, when participants may be tempted to revert back to their pain and suffering.

I’ll work with you to give your group leaders consistent structure to effectively help attendees.   Not only have I lived through this with my own illness, I’ve also been a caregiver. So I know first-hand that an upbeat, compassionate, simple approach is the most effective way to guide others.


Support the Support Group Leader training is the solution! 

cover-widgetThis 3 or 6-month program includes everything you need to support your group leaders and volunteers — customized curriculum, workbooks, and step-by-step how-to videos. based on Ellen’s book/CD, Splash Into Calm —a book loaded with techniques, perspectives, and stories, communicated with a casual, playful approach– Support the Support Group Leader   trains your group leaders and volunteers in how to teach attendees simple techniques and practices to help them feel better day to day.

Here’s how it works:

  • Ellen has a virtual live monthly call with leaders: There will be teaching, group discussion, and Q&A in every call.
  • All calls will be recorded, so they can tune in if they miss a call or want a review.
  • They will be assigned a teaching segment, along with the reading from the book, and a simple assignment.
  • There will be a private FB page for extra community support
  • You will be given monthly handouts or videos on the lesson taught
  • In each segment leaders will learn how to teach specific simple practices
  • They will receive additional handouts and practices that are not in the book.

Leaders will learn:

  • How to anchor yourself and your participants in the moment and transform knee jerk reactions into calm responses
  • How to communicate with participants and teach them how to communicate with doctors and loved ones openly and effectively
  • Evidence-based techniques to teach participants how to improve their nervous system and immune system to strengthen your overall health
  • Practices to help quiet participants relentless thoughts so they can improve their memory and focus
  • How to improve participants sleep and relax their body.
  • Learn how to effectively lower participants pain symptoms
  • How to balance participants day and get back to having some fun
  • Skills to help guide participants to stay in the solution.

Your organization will give so much than support- you will empower your families and leaders with tools to improve their wellbeing, no matter what is happening.
