Self-esteem support group to begin weekly meetings Feb. 2

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- "Self-Esteem and Empowerment: SEE Yourself" is the name of a new support group designed to allow women to discuss their strengths and develop ways to make positive changes in their lives. The support group is sponsored by the University of Iowa Women's Resource and Action Center (WRAC).

The group will meet once a week for six weeks beginning Monday, Feb. 2 at the Women's Center, 130 N. Madison, Iowa City.

"It's easy to get down on yourself when under stress or when bad things happen, so it's important to know how to re-build your faith in yourself," said Courtney Heller, group facilitator. "The group will give women the tools to re-build their faith in themselves through weekly discussions about evaluating their self-image, recognizing their dreams, and creating plans to achieve those dreams."

To register, or for more information, call the Women's Center at (319) 335-1486.
