PAN Solidarity Groups: Belonging. Solidarity. Connection.

PAN will be hosting a series of online workshop sessions, for frontline service providers of PAN member organizations, with Clinical Supervisor/Instructor/Consultant Vikki Reynolds ( – PAN Solidarity Group: Belonging. Solidarity. Connection.

These online sessions will explore the importance of belonging, solidarity and connection in these challenging and uncertain times.  Vikki works to bridge the worlds of social justice, activism and therapy. Some of you will be familiar with Vikki’s work around resisting burnout and some similar themes will be reviewed and discussed in these sessions as they relate to the COVID-19 situation.  These sessions are not group therapy sessions, they are instructional in nature (a presentation followed by a dialogue) and participants are asked to come prepared to be active participants in the sessions (i.e. cameras enabled, active participation via the chat function of the webinar platform, and in some cases enabling your microphone for dialogue with Vikki).

For people unfamiliar with Vikki and her work please see the attached bio or visit her website:


We will be offering 3 sessions (all sessions will follow the same format and structure) at different times of the day as we know some of you are working shifts outside of the 9-5 paradigm.  The dates for the 3 sessions are as follows:

Tuesday, April 28th – 2:00-3:30 PM (session full)

Tuesday, April 28th – 6:00-7:30 PM 

Thursday, April, 30th – 10:00-11:30 AM (session full)

• You can change your name to something generic once you are in the meeting e.g. David instead of David Walker. (If you have a Zoom account you can do this in advance)
• If dialing in by phone, your phone number shows in Zoom window. If you would like to appear as a name please email [email protected] in advance of the meeting once you have registered.
