Group Therapy

Group therapy generally consists of six to ten people meeting with a trained therapist to talk about issues that they may be struggling with. Members share their feelings and gain insight about their problems from other group members who may be having similar struggles. Emotional support in the form of group therapy can be an invaluable experience.

Below are some of the groups currently offered at Behavioral Associates.
