Group psychotherapy offered in Boulder, Colorado, with Teri Dillion, MA, LPC, LAC.
Interpersonal Process Groups can help members to:
*Express their own thoughts, feelings, problems and reactions as openly as possible *Explore patterns of relating with different types of people *Learn how to give and get helpful feedback * Be seen and heard in a larger framework than individual therapy *Understand themselves and their relationships better, as well as how to be most supportive to others In process groups clients often find that their lives and relationships outside of the group are significantly impacted for the better by the work they do in the group.
Monday Group: This interpersonal process group is mixed-gender, with a “here-and-now” focus. We seek to provide a format for members to receive feedback and support about their relationship styles, challenges, and strengths, explore the relational patterns which may be hidden to themselves but apparent to others, identify existential aspects of the human experience, and develop new, more adaptive ways of relating to self and others. The group leaders tend to individual and whole-group processes; oftentimes learning and growing can take place even when one is not the sole focus of attention. (Group treatment can be an affordable and convenient adjunct or alternative to individual therapy, and has been shown repeatedly by research to be as or more effective than individual work.)
This group is appropriate for anyone looking to understand themselves better, and strengthen their relationships with lovers, partners, children, coworkers, family, or acquaintances. Issues including anxiety, addiction recovery, relationship conflicts and success, sexuality, transition, grief and identity are welcome material in this group. When: Mondays, 5:30-7pm Cost: $50 per week
This group will be co-lead by Teri Dillion, LPC, LAC, CGP, and John Wagner, MS, LMFT.
