GROUP THERAPY

There are a number of Group Therapy experiences that are available at Perspectives.

RESTORE

This is a group therapy experience exploring and processing anxiety. It is a 6 week commitment in which group members will learn practical coping skills for their anxiety. RESTORE is facilitated by Beth Kennedy, LMSW.  Each week within RESTORE is unique, applying creative interventions and hands on encounters. Beth utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to unearth and digest group members sources of anxiety. Beth work seamlessly to provide a powerful, practical, and helpful group experience.

Please wear comfortable clothing. We have plenty of yoga mats. If you have never tried yoga before, don’t worry, this is not advanced yoga.  All information shared in RESTORE is confidential. I’m excited to redefine and revolutionize the way group therapy is experienced.  Through guided imagery, traditional and non-traditional therapeutic exercises, and anxiety-reducing strategies, we will work towards restoring your mind, body and soul.

“Beth provided amazing skills to address and analyze anxiety. She was accepting and encouraging to all group members. I felt understood and less alone during these sessions and would love to do it again one day! So much terrific information about anxiety was provided!

DBT Skills Group

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) treatment is a type of psychotherapy that utilizes a cognitive-behavioral approach. DBT emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment.

The theory behind the approach is that some people are prone to react in a more intense and out-of-the-ordinary manner toward certain emotional situations, primarily those found in romantic, family and friend relationships. DBT theory suggests that some people’s arousal levels in such situations can increase far more quickly than the average person’s, attain a higher level of emotional stimulation, and take a significant amount of time to return to baseline arousal levels.

Perspectives Therapy Services is offering a supportive group therapy setting for clients to begin to utilize the DBT in their daily lives.

Our program includes the following four elements necessary to all DBT programs:

  • Interpersonal effectiveness.
  • Distress tolerance/reality acceptance skills.
  • Emotion regulation.
  • Mindfulness skills.

Maternal Support Group

A new support group specifically designed for moms is launching at PTS through the Early Connections Institute. The group will run the first Monday of every month from 6:30-7:30pm in the group room at the PTS Brighton Clinic (Room 13).

Moms need (deserve) to feel a sense of belonging and validation. This is best done in a safe space with other moms who have both strengths and struggles. Join us for an incredible experience of connecting, sharing and supporting.

Our maternal support group is uniquely designed for mom’s who are experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety. We encourage moms to attend this group without their child(ren) as it is intended to be a time of connection with other moms, without the distraction of our children’s needs over our own.

For more information on this group and our maternal support services, please contact our intake specialist at 810-494-7180.
