What are the groups like?
The format of the groups is conversation-style. A supportive, judgement-free space creates a sense of community. Members learn from each other’s experiences, feel comfort from feeling less alone, and build skills and confidence.
The hosts of the groups are a combination of peers with lived experience and qualifications to run a group, or are also social workers or counsellors in training or a graduate.
Which groups are currently running?
There are currently two and soon-to-be three different DID/OSDD groups running on different days of the week.
The Loved Ones of DID Systems group so far has one day per week, with more potential days as the member list grows.
The Depersonalization, Derealization, Fugue group is probably starting up for the end of November.
The Maladaptive Daydreaming list is still being built up, so applicants will be contacted when the launch day is set.
After signing up, individuals will be invited to meet 1:1 with a member of the Multiplied By One team for a few pre-screening questions. This is for group security to prevent trolls. Applicants will not be approved to join a group without a pre-screening call. These conversations are conducted in a comfortable manner with no pressure or sense of interrogation. It is important that our members’ sense of safety is protected, which extends to applicants.
There is a low monthly subscription fee with an option for a yearly discount that includes one family member. For those genuinely unable to afford the fee, you can request to be sponsored by Multiplied By One Org. Simply select the option in the form.
