Group Therapy and Education

Group Therapy and EducationFor many people, group therapy and education is a great treatment choice. A group setting provides a supportive and confidential space to share experiences, allows you to gain the input of others and find community. Groups are typically focused on a specific topic or treatment, such as recovery from abuse or trauma, anger, chemical dependency or coping with grief.

There are many benefits to group therapy and education, including:

  • Focus on specific issues and challenges
  • Discover you’re not alone
  • Learn from others who have gone through similar experiences
  • Get multiple perspectives from different group members
  • Feel more connected to others and learn new interpersonal skills
  • Practice the lessons you’ve learned through your experiences by helping others in the group

We currently offer the following region-specific therapy and education groups:
