Group therapy is a weekly workshop environment that allows group members to experience a wide range of work. People will typically discuss a problem and look at it from various points of view. Individuals receive support and are challenged to step out of conditioned roles. Group members assist each other in how their behavior and treatment may influence people around them, both positively or negatively, by giving direct and honest feedback. This helps group members learn what prevents them from getting close to significant others, friends, colleagues and family members. Group members supplement their work in individual psychotherapy with group work.
Our groups are characterized by a high level of interaction, energy and honesty as well as a safe place to experiment with expressing all of your feelings. Group is also a working laboratory where newly learned negotiating skills can be put to the test around conflicts that arise within the group. Rather than conducting groups with a single theme and narrow scope (such as bereavement, recovery, etc.) our groups tackle a wide range of complex issues. We find that this approach makes group a richer and deeper experience as members take on life's challenges.
