Group therapy is a highly effective way to resolve many types of difficulties. Whether skill-based, educational, insight-oriented, or cognitive-behavioral, groups offer support to each participant and lessens the sense of isolation. The group becomes a "living laboratory" as relationship patterns from real life are recreated within the therapy group where they can be explored safely, and new patterns of relating developed. Frequently, group members are much more able to accept feedback from other group members than from friends, family, or even a therapist.
At Jordan West Family Counseling, our many different social skills groups and friendship groups are constantly evolving as we respond to the changing needs of our clients. Some groups may have a broader focus, while others may have more specific goals. If you don't see a group listed here that meets your needs, please check with us— sometimes we have other clients with compatible needs and we would be willing to start a new group.
