Group therapy and group activities offer therapeutic advantages to participants. Our qualified therapists and other expert staff lead group sessions throughout the day. We have psycho-educational groups, community groups, problem-solving groups and recreational therapy groups.
Evidence shows the powerful therapeutic value of group work. 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 therapy shows them that they are not alone as they hear from others who are facing similar challenges.
As children and teens work in group activities during their 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.
