Our Current Socialization Hubs

Presentations on wellness followed by group discussion and exploration of how this information could apply to each person – co-facilitated by a clinical psychology trainee.

The group decides the content – we source the experts to give a talk and the group discusses the talk – similar to the SCOA Hub Club format – co-facilitated by a doctoral student in clinical psychology.

3. Book Group

For book lovers, we pick a book, read it, and hold a virtual book club meeting! Co-facilitated by a doctoral student in clinical psychology.

4. Men’s Club and Women’s Club

Co-facilitated by Dr. Ivan Panyavin and a doctoral student in clinical psychology. Content to be determined by the group, but we will start with the format of a curiosity group.

5. Caregiver Club

Caregivers unite to discuss caregiving concerns and triumphs, and emotionally process caregiving in the era of COVID-19.
