SASS Support Groups

2017 Fall Schedule

 Group schedules are subject to change based on needs of community. Please feel free to contact SASS to insure you have the most current schedule @ 541-484-9791. SASS services, including groups, are always FREE.

Groups are held at SASS unless otherwise indicated. 591 W 19th Ave. Eugene Or. 97401 (Corner of 19th & Jefferson)

If you are new to SASS groups, our drop in one is a great place to start! Come have conversations, discuss various topics, and find support from others who have had similar experiences.  No late arrivals permitted.

Drop-in Support Groups

Self-identified women, 18+ drop-in group – meets every Monday SASS is open, 7 pm to 8:30 pm.

Self-identified men, 18+ drop-in group – Beginning in October. More details will be out soon.

Closed Workgroups

These groups are more structured than our drop in groups. Registration and a intake is required as well as a commitment to attend every session. Spots are limited. Please speak with Rebecca, our SASS counselor, to insure the fit is right, and to reserve your spot. Contact info below.


Women’s Workgroup –Internal Family Systems Parts Work – begins Wednesday Sept.  10 am to noon – meets 12 or more weeks depending upon needs of the group. NOTE: there are only 4 spots for this workgroup! If interested, contact SASS right away as they will fill up quick.

Gain a greater understanding of yourself and your “parts” with the help of Internal Family Systems Parts Work, have more effective and fulfilling relationships using Emotional Intelligence skills, and learn to be present and still with the use of Mindfulness exercises. Included in this will also be psycho-education pieces woven into the sessions to help you gain a better understanding of why we do the things we do. For more information on this group please contact Rebecca, our SASS counselor, at 541-484-9791 ex 315 or email: supportgroup(at)

Women’s Worthiness Work Group – begins Tuesday Sept.12, 2017, from 6 to 8 pm– meets for 10 to 12 weeks.

Valuing our own self-worth is foundational to all other work that comes after. To value your self-worth is to value your inherent worth as a person. In other words, self-worth is about who you are, not what you do. This workgroup will help you build these foundational skills, supporting you in discovering your own value. Group is limited to 8 participants.

Women’s Boundaries Workgroup – begins early 2018 – meets for 10 to 12 weeks.

We are responsible for setting our boundaries and following through on enforcing them. This can be a difficult skill to implement in our lives and we often do not know where to start. This workgroup will help you build these skills, and work with you on enforcing them. It often makes sense to attend this group after the Worthiness Workgroup. We have to believe we are worthy of setting boundaries to be able to do so. Group is limited to 8 participants

Looking for a different type of group than what’s listed here? Please contact me! I have other groups, for various populations in the planning stages. We are looking at starting up a group for folks from our LGBTQQ community, a closed men’s group, and a group for partners, friends and families of survivors, plus others.
