 This group will enable members to deepen their self-awareness of the manner in which they interact with others. A structured process using Imago Relationship Theory will create a safe space for members to integrate all aspects of self (spiritual, sexual, mental, emotional, and physical), thus gaining a clearer understanding of personal responsibility and expectations of others in establishing and developing significant relationships in their lives.

For many people, group therapy can be a powerful alternative or compliment to individual counseling. In a therapy group, members are encouraged to give constructive feedback to one another, support one another, and share their feelings about what other group members say or do. Group members are encouraged to begin practicing new ways of relating to others in the group and to take these new skills into their lives outside the group. The group leader always works to ensure that the group is a safe and supportive environment for open and honest sharing.
 
There are some important advantages to group therapy:

  • Group therapy helps people develop and practice new ways of relating to others.
  • Group therapy give people a place there they can be supported by other people.
  • In group therapy, members support and encourage each other. Giving support and encouragement can be therapeutic and also helps one's own healing and growth.
  • In group therapy, people often begin to recreate the difficulties that brought them into counseling. The group becomes a safe place to get feedback, be supported, and learn alternative ways of thinking and acting.
  • Group sessions typically last 80 minutes and cost less than individual sessions.
