Day 3330: Safe Spaces

As I prepare another presentation about therapy groups, I know I need to talk about how to make safe spaces for people within a group, so that they’ll feel safe enough to share important thoughts and feelings.

Do you see any safe spaces in my images for today?

I’ll probably spend Global Movie Day in a safe space reading my birthday present — the wonderful autobiography of the amazing Mel Brooks (who’s aging like fine wine).

Here’s Joan in some safe spaces:

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “safe spaces.”

I hope the comments section, below, is a safe space for you to express any reactions you have to this “safe spaces” post.

Thanks to all who help make spaces safe, including YOU.

  1. It cheers me greatly how Joan has moved in (taken over?) so well in your and Michael’s safe space, Ann.

  2. Joan fetched her toy and brought it back (to play with, I would guess). Clever cat!

    I’m not sure what the other video is because It doesn’t play in my area. But don’t worry, by some chance I followed the wrong link today and watched a video that was nestled into a post of yours that was a year or two old. The video interviewed many children in the 1960s about what they thought life would be like in the year 2000, and their views were very pessimistic. They did not predict there would be any safe spaces.

  3. You should feel very proud and privileged to have supplied safe spaces for so many Ann!

  4. Safe spaces are so important. I loved your videos today, Ann. ‘Specially the kitty – obviously feeling very safe in his/her space!

  5. Music always seems to me to be a good way to create safe and one of your pictures reminded me of this song about an abandoned piano.

  6. maybe we all need sinks to curl up in as our safe spaces.

  7. I’m very fortunate to say that my safe space is always my home. I can curl up in a ball, like Joan does, if I need to find quiet and alone time, but the noise of the world doesn’t typically follow me up my driveway. I know that isn’t true for everyone, and I have a lot of gratitude.
