At the Associated Clinic of Psychology (ACP), we offer group therapy options for various types of clinical issues. Group therapy provides you an opportunity to meet with and receive support from other individuals who are struggling with similar conditions.
Though participating in group therapy may seem intimidating at first, it provides you with real-life skills and support, as well as the chance to practice your skills outside our clinic. You'll have a sounding board for your experiences, and learn from the experiences and perspectives of others in a safe, confidential, and therapeutic atmosphere that promotes lifelong success.
How Does Group Therapy Work?
An initial individual appointment with the group facilitator is required prior to joining the group in order to assess whether group therapy will be a good fit for you. Please contact the main number for the clinic location of the group you’re interested in and ask to be scheduled for a group intake appointment.
Group therapy scheduling subject to availability.
SEW is an ongoing class that teaches specific, evidence based skills on how to balance your emotions, get through a crisis, manage difficult relationships, and better understand your own thoughts and feelings. Each group session involves a mindfulness practice, a teaching component and homework review. Clients can expect to achieve goals of feeling more calm and emotionally balanced as well as decreasing impulsive, emotional and/or reactive behaviors. Clients can also expect to become more assertive and effective in relationships as well as achieve a better understanding of their own needs.
Clients attending a SEW group are required to attend individual therapy with their group therapist (or another therapist familiar with SEW) on an ongoing basis.
