The Independent Seekers Advocacy Group was developed in June of 2015 due to interest from participants at Mattingly.
The group started with 10 participants who all applied and were chosen to be members. The focus of the Independent Seekers can be split into two categories. The first is Emotional Development and Regulation, and the second is Political Engagement.
The coordinator of the group uses therapeutic strategies that have been scientifically proven as beneficial to help the participants learn how their bodies and brains interact. These strategies include mindfulness, therapeutic modalities, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and exercise/movement.
