All groups are offered in an environment of healing, compassion and hope. These support groups are open to any interested participant who undergoes an evaluation given by one of the BPWC psychologists, and is determined to be an appropriate group member. If you are interested in participating in a group, simply call the office to schedule a brief interview.
Please call our office for a current schedule of support groups. Below is a brief description of some of the support groups BPWC has conducted previously.
Coping/Life Skills Group
This group will focus on helping members develop more effective skills in the areas of managing emotional and psychological symptoms, communication, coping with stress, time management, and assertiveness. This group is an ideal way for a person to ‘step-down’ from individual therapy to no therapy, or from inpatient to outpatient treatment, and will also benefit those wanting to improve their functioning in relationships, at home or at work.
Chronic Pain Group
This group is intended for those coping with chronic physical pain and an emotional problem such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress. Emphasis will be placed on learning effective management of both psychological and physical symptoms, understanding the interaction between the emotional and the physical, and connecting with resources for support.
