What We Do
Process groups offer a supportive environment where people can deeply understand their own emotions and thought patterns. In these groups, members have the chance to see how they relate to others and work on building stronger connections. By sharing experiences and feedback, everyone can learn new ways to communicate and bond. These groups are especially good at showing how our behaviors affect our relationships and teaching us how to make positive changes. With guidance from a skilled facilitator, members can practice new skills in a safe setting, leading to personal growth and healthier relationships.
Psychoeducational groups aim to share knowledge and teach skills related to mental health, such as coping strategies or understanding emotions. These groups offer a structured setting where participants can learn practical tools to manage their mental well-being. Depending on what individuals are looking to achieve, both psychoeducational and other types of therapy groups can be very helpful. They cater to different needs, whether it's gaining information or experiencing personal growth. In these settings, participants can find support and guidance tailored to their specific goals, making the group experience enriching and valuable.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment approach that focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors. According to Irving D. Yalom, MD, a renowned psychiatrist and author of "Therapy and Practice of Group Psychotherapy," CBT can be effectively integrated into group settings to enhance personal growth and interpersonal learning. By applying CBT principles within groups, individuals can learn from each other's experiences, fostering a collaborative environment for healing and self-discovery.
