What Is A Psycho-Educational Group?
Small groups designed to inform and educate individuals on a specified topic related to psychology. Each session is both instructive and experiential in nature. There is both a ‘learning’ and a ‘doing’ component, so you will get an opportunity to deepen your understanding (the philosophy, background, or research, etc. of the subject) and an opportunity to experiment with a new skill or technique (deep breathing, mindfulness, etc.).
In other words, this is not typical ‘group therapy’ – it is about learning and discovery!
Benefits of Groups:
Connect with others in a safe space
Give and receive support
Find your voice and improve your social skills
Learn and practice new techniques
Get a fresh perspective on your life situation
