Some of the groups we offer utilizing proven curriculums……..
01 — Woman’s Way through the Twelve Steps
Geared specifically to women, this book brings a feminine perspective to the Twelve Step program, searching out the healing messages beneath the male-oriented words (Hazelden).
02 — Circle of Security
The Circle of Security is a relationship based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children. Decades of university-based research have confirmed that secure children exhibit increased empathy, greater self-esteem, better relationships with parents and peers, enhanced school readiness, and an increased capacity to handle emotions more effectively when compared with children who are not secure.
03 — Connections
Connections draws on empirically based strategies to help clients recognize shame as a universal experience and embrace authentic living as a foundation for shame resilience. Topics include:
Exploring triggers and vulnerabilities
Practicing critical awareness
Reaching out to others
Creating, embracing, and inspiring change
The Connections cirriculum engages clients on a cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal level. Clients learn via group and personal exercises, handouts, and reading assignments from Brown’s best-selling book I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t): Telling the Truth about Perfectionism, Inadequacy, and Power.

04 — Seeking Safety
Seeking Safety is a present-focused therapy to help people attain safety from trauma/PTSD and substance abuse. The key principles of Seeking Safety are: 1. Safety as the overarching goal (helping clients attain safety in their relationships, thinking, behavior, and emotions) 2. Integrated treatment (working on both PTSD and substance abuse at the same time) 3. A focus on ideals to counteract the loss of ideals in both PTSD and substance abuse 4. Four content areas: cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, and case management 5. Attention to clinician processes (helping clinicians work on countertransference, self-care, and other issues) (www.seekingsafety.org)
Our group members experience support, understanding, empathy and encouragement from one another. Clients boost their self-confidence by sharing their lives and experiences. Group sessions are beneficial in healing all emotional and psychological struggles people experience: anger, anxiety, depression, fear, shame, etc. Group members learn how to accept support from others and start to understand the difficulties in other peoples’ lives. Participating in group sessions gives clients purpose, responsibility and a sense of belonging.
