Group Therapy Really Works! 

According to Corey (2010) “Group Therapy offers unique therapeutic possibilities...The interaction that takes place among members provides a level of support, caring, confrontation, and other qualities not found in individual therapy.  Within the group context, members are able to practice new social skills and apply some of their new knowledge”

(cited from Corey, M. S., Corey, G., & Corey, C. (2010). Groups: Process and practice (8th ed.). Belmont, CA: Brooks/Cole).

Whether longer-term or short-term in nature, group therapy is a very effective form of treatment.  Years of research prove that group therapy can be just as effective as individual therapy, and in many instances, even more effective.  Group therapy will give you the opportunity to better understand yourself, interact with and get support from peers who share similar problems, improve your interpersonal relationships and help you grow as an individual.  Our short-term, skill-based groups give you the added benefit of acquiring education and skills that will help you cope better with specific emotional and/or behavior problems.
