Group therapy sessions often involve around seven to twelve individuals and meets one or twice each week for an hour or two. These sessions allow people to receive the support and encouragement of the other members of the group.
People participating in the group can see that others are going through the same thing, which can help them feel less alone.
Groups offered at Lee Carlson Center are facilitated by licensed therapists who are often assisted by clinical interns with an interest or expertise in a certain area.
