Group Therapy

Group Therapy is a helpful way for individuals to learn and develop skills in a number of areas that help improve their functioning.  Depending on the type of group, participants meet weekly for 6 or 8 weeks; sessions last from 60-90 minutes.

FOR PARENTS

Classes in behavior management can help improve the skills of parents in interacting with their children and may reduce stress for all family members.  Skills are taught that target problem behaviors, such as trouble doing homework, disobedience, not listening to parents, or difficulty getting along with siblings and other children.  Moreover, parents are taught how to be advocates for their child.  The goal is to empower parents to manage their child's challenging behaviors more effectively.

Parent Group Topics

  • Behavior Management
  • Positive Attention
  • Stress Management

FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS

Group Therapy can be an effective way for children and adolescents to learn skills that help them improve their functioning and their self-confidence.  Areas of focus may include management of stress/anxiety or anger, as well as relating and communicating with others.  Groups are arranged by age and typically focus on one primary topic, such as anger management. We currently are in the process of developing group programs for children and adolescents and will begin scheduling in early 2011.
