Group Therapy

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Here at Stairways’ Forensic Out-Patient clinic, all clients are required to complete at least one 8-12 week group, preferable shortly after the completion of the Intake process. Just like the camaraderie and strength in numbers found in AA meetings, many clients report  the feedback and support they receive from their peers in group plays a vital part in their individual journeys of recovery.

I run a weekly Men’s Issues Group, where the guys have an opportunity to discuss the ups and downs of their weeks, and how they navigate conflict, stress, decision-making and especially inter-personal relationships. We also look differences between men and women, such as innate brain differences which affect things like multi-tasking and listening skills. Finally, I gotta say that I continue to be impressed by the empathy, respect and support that our clients impart to each other on a daily basis.
