Group therapycan help create authentic connections, reduce isolation and heal social wounds.
Hurtful social situations can wound us. Rejection and abuse can give the message that there's something wrong with us. Attempts to avoid rejection through isolation, or to court acceptance by acting fake can cause loneliness and emptiness.
On the other hand, a group of accepting, understanding individuals can provide a corrective experience, so we can accept our imperfections, express our true selves and connect.
We offer general personal growth groups and specific groups for the following populations and issues:
Shout Out! is a Self Expression group for teenagers. Participants use improvisational games, story telling, "show 'n' tell" and creative arts activities, to express themselves, solve problems and have fun.
Shout Out! for Parents of Teens helps parents generate ideas on how to handle their teens and how to handle the thoughts and emotions that can get you off track. We use lively role plays that target participants' specific situations instead of boring lectures.
Gender Variant: We periodically hold groups for Male-to-Female and Female-to-Male individuals.
Join the fun!
Here's how it works: Ms. Whitlock meets with potential members free of charge to determine which group would best support this individual.
Or attend a Hot Topic night. Think of it as "Show 'n' Tell." We don't just talk -- we share creative writing or art. We act out scenes revolving around a theme, such as "The Inner Critic," "Free Spirit," "Awkward" or "Superheroes and Villians." The idea is to encourage thought, dialogue, self expression and playfulness.
When we have found enough like-minded members to support a group, we're ready to roll. For a limited time, participants pay no more than $15 a group, after insurance pays its share.
