The Group Process

This group is an open group, which means that new members can join at any time unless the group itself decides to close to new members.

Each group will create its own norms and practices regarding attendance, absences, and policies. By actively participating in the development and maintenance of group norms and rules, members contribute to a sense of ownership and empowerment within the therapy group.

This collaborative process fosters trust and cohesion, which are vital for the success of group therapy. The full group will meet in person with each session lasting roughly 1.5 hours. 

A typical group session includes a combination of:

Discussion at the beginning of the group to hear insights from the previous session and get a sense of others’ thoughts, feelings, and experiences with the content being discussed

Explanation of relevant science, research, or literature to provide a better understanding of the topic for that session

An individual activity to help participants explore their own beliefs, values, and desires
