Crossroads for Women e-Newsletter

July 2010

I hope you are enjoying some nice summer weather. It has been beautiful here in Portland! This month, we're announcing a new outpatient therapy group for women who deal with chronic pain. The group will be held in Kennebunk from August 31 - October 19th. We're also extending a warm thanks to our friends at Pierce Atwood who recently visited our Windham campus for their annual Day of Community Service.

Anasazi Sofware logoKennebunk Counseling Center is offering a new outpatient therapy group for people who live with chronic pain. The Managing Chronic Pain group is an 8-week group intended for women seeking both professional and peer support for chronic pain in a nurturing environment. This group will offer a cognitive behavioral approach to coping with pain in order to achieve greater fulfillment in one's life.

Group members will develop increased insight as to how thoughts, feelings and behaviors impact the perception and experience of pain. Group members can reflect and gain support from one another, as well as practice relaxation and distraction techniques in order to manage their pain.

teaPierce Atwood Day of Community Service
Pierce Atwood Day of Community Service in Windham
Pierce Atwood hosts an annual Day of Community Service during which attorneys and staff leave the office for a day to serve deserving New England charitable organizations. This year, a Pierce Atwood team of about 40 visited Crossroads for Women's Windham campus.

The team worked hard all day long, and the results were fantastic. The campus, which houses our Residential Rehabilitation, Children And Mothers Program (CAMP) and a future new outpatient office, looks beautiful inside and out. The crew pitched in with painting, gardening, moving furniture, setting up a records room and sorting out items for our yard sale fundraiser.

This work would have been almost impossible to accomplish without help. All of the Crossroads for Women staff and clients are thankful that a local firm like Pierce Atwood showed its support for our programs and services. The work that Pierce Atwood put in for us on Tuesday helps us to continue to provide a warm and nurturing environment for our clients.

Thank you, Pierce Atwood!
