How Group Therapy Helps

Group therapy allows you to learn what other people have found helpful. Groups can also be a good forum to learn how to deal more effectively with relationships in your life. And group treatment can provide a convenient and cost-effective way to acquire new coping skills. Both our Washington, DC and Bethesda Locations offer group therapy.

Below is information on our current group offerings:

Our Regulating Emotions Distress and Interpersonal Relationships (REDI) Group is currently forming. The goal of this group is to help individuals in their journey to improve control over their emotions and mind, gain agency in their world, and lead a life worth living. The material covered in the REDI Program is based on an effective, research-based therapy called Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

This group covers skills from a variety of domains including:

  • Mindfulness
  • Tolerating distress
  • Regulating emotions
  • Effectively navigating interpersonal relationships

The Building Social Confidence Group is a skills based, in-person, experiential group to assist individuals in breaking the cycle of social anxiety that might be limiting a person’s ability to make meaningful social connections. This group will take place between 6:00pm and 7:30pm on Tuesday evenings.

This group will help members:

  • Learn cognitive skills to reframe anxious thoughts
  • Confront anxiety-provoking situations
  • Practice engaging in social interactions
  • Build skills and confidence for engaging in social situations
