Finding the Fit
Therapy Toolbox: Finding the Fit
In 2020, around 41.4 million adults in the United States received treatment or counseling for their mental health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the percentage of adults getting mental health treatment increased from 19.2% in 2019 to 21.6% in 2021. With the increase of the number of people looking for therapists, there has been an increase in questions about how to start the process of finding the right therapist, questions to ask, and what the consumer needs to know.
Therapy Toolbox: Finding the Fit seeks to increase your confidence in finding a fit for who you are, what you need, and where you want to be. There are approximately 617,060 licensed mental health professionals in the United States. Finding the one that fits you best takes strategy, knowledge, patience, and a toolbox to support a successful consultation conversation with therapists.
Rest is Resistance:
By Tricia Hersey
In Rest Is Resistance, Tricia Hersey, aka the Nap Bishop, casts an illuminating light on our troubled relationship with rest and how to imagine and dream our way to a future where rest is exalted. Our worth does not reside in how much we produce, especially not for a system that exploits and dehumanizes us. Rest, in its simplest form, becomes an act of resistance and a reclaiming of power because it asserts our most basic humanity. We are enough. The systems cannot have us.
Rest Is Resistance is rooted in spiritual energy and centered in Black liberation, womanism, somatics, and Afrofuturism. With captivating storytelling and practical advice, all delivered in Hersey’s lyrical voice and informed by her deep experience in theology, activism, and performance art, Rest Is Resistance is a call to action, a battle cry, a field guide, and a manifesto for all of us who are sleep deprived, searching for justice, and longing to be liberated from the oppressive grip of Grind Culture.
The FlipPage Squad will read or use an audiobook to listen to Rest is Resistance. It is through weekly one-hour discussions, handouts, and rest-directed activities we will explore how we have learned to grind, what it would look like to rest, and build a practice of resting while supporting others to do the same.
Meetings will begin Wednesday, February 8th and will take place weekly via a secure link with video capability. Each week will be a 60-minute discussion session.
6-7pm CST/ 7-8pm EST/ 4-5pm PST
