Fall 2015


Interpersonal Processing Group

When people come into a group and interact freely with other group members, they usually recreate those difficulties that brought them to group therapy in the first place. Under the skilled direction of a group therapist, the group is able to give support, offer alternatives, or gently confront the person. In this way the difficulty becomes resolved, alternative behaviors are learned, and the person develops new social techniques or ways of relating to people. During group therapy, people begin to see that they are not alone. Many people feel they are unique because of their problems, and it is encouraging to hear that other people have similar difficulties. In the climate of trust provided by the group, people feel free to care about and help each other.

This is an 11 week group that meets weekly throughout the semester in Curtiss 110. 

Pick one of the dates and times below and email Anne Acker at amacker@svsu.edu to join. It is free and confidential, but you must register in advance by 9/21/15.

Tuesdays 4pm to 5:30pm
9/22 to 12/1


Thursdays 12:30pm to 2pm
