Goals of the group

The goal of the group is to understand what it is to live with or have to deal with difficult in-laws, and the ways they can be difficult in our individual, interpersonal and intrapersonal lives.We then would focus on the struggles in each of these domains and work together to form ways of dealing with and setting boundaries in the space between individuals and their inlaws.

Who is the group for?

Anyone who has felt that they are having to constantly deal with difficult in-laws and are facing regular struggles as a result of the same.

    Inter-caste marriage

  • I feel happier and stronger than ever. The group helped me more in 4 weeks than more than a year of individual therapy!


    Living in a joint family

  • I just had a very emotional discussion. It was probably one of the most helpful things for me in years.

Meet your Facilitator

Ipsita Chatterjee

Ms. Ipsita Chatterjee has been a practicing psychologist for more than six years. She works as a therapist because she believes that mental health is one of the most important parts of one’s life and there is a need for having safe spaces to navigate concerns pertaining to it. Listening to people’s stories, hearing about their resilience and strengths, working with clients questioning single storied ways of being through a strength based approach, finding alternative stories and alternative definitions that work best to suit their individual needs are some of her favorite parts of the therapy process. Therapy for her more than just reduction in distress, it is also a process of allowing oneself to be, to grow and to explore.

Ipsita is an alumni of Tata Institute of Social Sciences and has worked on multiple field action projects of TISS.

What happens in a group session?

While the format can vary as per topic, here’s a flow that most sessions follow

Check In. Participants check-in with each others' feelings and answer the prompt given by the facilitator if any.

Conversation. Your facilitator will guide the group in a free-flowing conversation—with the goal of sharing openly, talking honestly, and deep emotional connection.

Check Out. Participants share what they're taking away from the session.

What am I going to get out of this?

Participants say that they feel heard, understood, more in control, and a feeling that you’ve got people rooting for you. By talking about your emotions and what's going on in your life, you'll realise that you're not alone and get ideas for how to improve your situation.
