Group therapy is a powerful adjunct to mental health treatment. It can be done alone or in conjunction with individual therapy. Groups provide children and adolescents with a healthy context to work through current concerns through positive peer interactions, building relationships, and developing prosocial skills. Groups help youth develop a sense of belonging and cohesiveness through peer connections, feedback, and support.
Be. groups will be offered in a closed format, meaning that to establish trust and safety among members once the group commences it will be run for 6 – 8 consecutive sessions maintaining the same members. Groups will be offered once an appropriate number of members are obtained.
Please contact Carey Sorenson, Be. // Child and Adolescent Mental Health, LLC to determine if your child or adolescent may benefit from one of Be.’s groups.
