WIF Support Spaces
Women In Film Los Angeles (WIF) provides several different 8-week closed virtual support groups on a variety of topics that serve the needs of different WIF community members. Support Spaces are free, 90 minute weekly meetings that take place virtually on our secure platform.
Ashley Merriman, ASW, WIF Help Line Advocate and psychotherapist, provides space for peer connection and community, as well as psychoeducation and emotional support. These confidential and healing spaces are an opportunity for women and non-binary folks to process their own experiences in community with others who are also grappling with the psychological and social impacts of themes like sexual harassment, racism and gender based discrimination in the entertainment industry, and living and working through the COVID-19 pandemic as a worker in the screen industries.
Past and current groups include The Black Member Support Space, Coping in Quarantine, and Survivors in Community. Participants examine their self care and coping mechanisms, share tools with each other, and learn how to build resiliency to maintain and grow their careers.
