Group Process

This 9-week process group will allow men & women in their 20s to have a group approach to share and reflect on their life course. Each week will identify a particular topic, allowing group participants to create their own life plan, including a focus on: personal relationship goals, academic interests, career prospects, setting boundaries with family members, and creating a year treatment plan. The therapeutic process will embrace strengths-based outlook on the whole person for changes each person wants to see in their future. Group facilitators will collaborate with each group participant's individual therapist to ensure that there is both individual & group space to process goals. Family therapy with parents/guardians may be recommended as part of the treatment plan.
