It takes courage to join a group and talk about your difficulties but it is worth it to invest in yourself. As participants, we see ourselves in others, understand each other and help each other with respect and confidentiality.

Regular workshops are two hours a week for 10 weeks and the short one for parents is four weeks. The intensive workshops take place over two days, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Our services are free. However, in order to attend our workshops, a participant must pay $30 for the workbook and $10 to become a member of Le Versant.

SCHEDULE  -   The Winter session 2021 begins the week of January 18.

Recommendations of the Quebec Government to non-for-profit organizations is to hold their activities by videoconference. Le Versant decided to do so this winter for its regular workshops. However, the first meeting will be held in person while rigorously observing all the rules about face covering, staying two meters apart, washing hands and sanitizing the occupied space. The French intensive February week-end workshop will take place in person if possible at that time.

The first meeting is held in person to be able to briefly get acquainted, distribute the exercice book and understand the regulations. Such meeting in English will be held on Tuesday evening, January 18, at the CDC V-S, Corporation de développement communautaire de Vaudreuil-Soulanges at 10 St-Louis, Vaudreuil-Dorion. In general, the meetings in the morning are from 10 to noon, those in the afternoon from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and those in the evening are from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

To follow the instructions, the groups are limited to eight participants with two facilitators. We ask those who will register for a workshop to be serious about their commitment till the end of the session as not to deprive someone else who could benefit from the same opportunity to get help.

To register, click on the colored link of the workshop you have chosen and complete the form that will appear. As you know, the workshop The Global Approach to Anxiety Disorders must be completed before you can take the other subjects – except the French mini-workshop for parents.

You are welcome to the workshops in French if you can master reading and talking in that language.
