Group Therapy

Group therapy offers many advantages to participants. At The Barry Robinson Center, our qualified therapists lead group therapy sessions. We cover topics such as Mindfulness, Meditation, Healthy Relationships, Core Values, Anger Management and Emotional Regulation, Substance Abuse, Military Family Issues, Process Group, Social Skills, Life Skills and Self-esteem.

We have found group therapy to be very helpful and rewarding for our residents. Although some children or teens initially may be shy in groups, participating helps them address issues of concern. Group discussions also give them different perspectives and ideas for solving problems. And, perhaps most importantly, group style therapy shows them that they are not alone as they hear from others who are facing similar challenges.

As children and teens progress through group therapy during their residential treatment, they can develop informal support relationships and accountability partners among their peers. They also learn how to listen and how to communicate with their peers and adult leaders, developing and honing skills that will help them succeed after discharge.
