If you feel that therapy is something you need, many individuals consider Group therapy for treatment. Based on your specific condition and treatment needs, group therapy can be an excellent choice for finding solutions to some of your concerns and positively impacting your life.
Group therapy may sound intimidating because you may be anxious about joining a group of strangers, however, group has many benefits that individual therapy lacks. Often, group members are pleasantly surprised at how rewarding this type of therapy can be and begin to look forward to the collaborative experience. Our group therapy activities change regularly and you can join at any time.
In VBRC Adult Stress Anxiety Depression Group you will learn:
- You will learn & practice skills that reduce anxiety.
- You will see that you are not alone in dealing with anxiety.
- You will practice developing less fearful connections with others.
- You will obtain valuable peer support and encouragement.
- You will learn how to relate to yourself and others in healthier ways.
Because group members are sharing on a common issue, they can identify with other group members helping each other with solutions and specific ideas for improving difficulties or life challenges. Your support network is also there to hold you accountable to commitments you make during these group meetings.
The diversity of the group also leads to a diversity of opinions and viewpoints that may not be available during individual therapy. It is commonly said that “You get out of Group what You put into Group” for a reason. Openly talking and listening to others helps to build perspective on your own issues. Although stress, anxiety, and depression are common mental health conditions, many individuals think they are the only ones struggling with one or more of these conditions so a group can help you feel less isolated.
At Vero Beach Recovery Center (VBRC), our Stress, Anxiety, Depression (SAD) Group Therapy for adults involves one therapist with up to eight group members. These meetings are scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday evening from 5:30-7:00 pm after work or school hours, allowing the individual to meet your daytime obligations while getting a therapeutic solution at the end of the day when the stress & anxiety of daily life may be at its peak. Further, these group meetings occur much more regularly than individual therapy and are far less expensive.
Following a Clinical Assessment, we can determine if our Adult Stress Anxiety & Depression Group is an appropriate option. Not every client is appropriate for group therapy as it would be a disservice to them as well as the group to encourage a treatment that would fit their specific needs.
To find out more about our process and if you may be a candidate for Group Therapy, please call us at (772) 584-3083 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Although you can join at any time, participation is extremely limited.
