At Danforth Psychology, we believe that individual work can be sufficient for some clients, while for others, a useful complement to one-on-one work is attending an ongoing group. Groups provide a lot that might be lacking to some extent in individual work: Groups provide a space for social skills building and addressing relationship issues. Some clients enter into therapy feeling as if they do not quite belong or that they are ‘the other’ and so being with similar clients who struggle with these feelings can help shift that perspective. Groups provide a space for skills building and practice, groups provide a level of accountability as members often get to know each other and begin to want to support one another in a very natural way.
If you are interested in joining a group with the following focus: DBT Skills, Therapeutic Writing, Self-Compassion, Social Anxiety, or Men’s Experience, please contact us for more information.
