Emotions Anonymous

Group Name: Emotions Anonymous

Description: Emotions Anonymous is a twelve-step organization, similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. Our fellowship is composed of people who come together in weekly meetings for the purpose of working toward recovery from emotional difficulties. EA members are from many walks of life and are of diverse ages, economic status, social and educational backgrounds. The only requirement for membership is a desire to become well emotionally. Our program has been known to work miracles in the lives of many who suffer from problems as diverse as depression, anger, broken or strained relationships, grief, anxiety, low self-esteem, panic, abnormal fears, resentment, jealousy, guilt, despair, fatigue, tension, boredom, loneliness, withdrawal, obsessive and negative thinking, worry, compulsive behavior and a variety of other emotional issues.

EA is not a medical or psychiatric service, nor does it provide personal or family counseling. Leadership of group meetings rotates and is non-professional. The leader’s function is simply to conduct the meeting, not to serve as an authority. Our meetings are structured to assist individuals who want to achieve and maintain emotional health by understanding and utilizing the Twelve Steps of Emotions Anonymous in their daily lives. After the meeting anyone can ask questions and talk to anyone. It is important to know that it isn’t a discussion group but more of a sharing one.

Applegrove Community Complex – Over the Rainbow Therapeutic Play

Group Name: Applegrove Community Complex – Over the Rainbow Therapeutic Play

Description: Applegrove Community Complex is a multi-service community organization in southeast Riverdale in Toronto. Our catchment area runs from Jones to Woodbine Avenues and from Lake Ontario north to the Railway tracks. Services cover the age range with programs for infants, children, teens, adults and seniors.

Over The Rainbow is a therapeutic play group for young children who are experiencing behavioural and/or emotional difficulties in their interactions with other children or their parents. The program consists of 8 weekly sessions for children and parents. Children use music, art, drama and story-telling to explore feelings, experiences and behaviours, while parents discuss concerns in a supportive group environment.

All children can have difficulties adjusting their emotional states to different life situations and as a result may be moody or have trouble listening, waiting, and/or making changes in routine. There can also be difficult social times when children learn to play and interact with other children. However, this group is designed for children who are having more difficulty than others and whose parents worry about the children’s social and emotional health.

Where: 60 Woodfield Road | Toronto, ON M4L 2W6

When: Call for more details.
