Group Therapy (ages 18+)
Our clinicians have extensive experience running groups for a wide variety of populations across a wide variety of treatment contexts. For the better part of the last decade, Jamie has run groups at different college counseling centers. The focus of these groups include topics directly applicable to college experience (e.g., Stop Procrastinating; Healthy Study Habits; Transition to College Life), as well as those applicable to life in general (e.g., Healthy Relationships; Social Anxiety; Self and Other; Avoiding Avoidance).
Rob has extensive experience in group work as well, primarily through his time at several Partial Hospital Programs (including Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Massachusetts Mental Health Center and Cambridge Health Alliance). In these contexts, he has treated a wide variety of persons whose difficulty runs the gamut in terms of severity, ranging from painful but brief adjustment problems to chronic and long-term psychotic, mood, and personality difficulty. He has particular training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), which is an intensive treatment aimed at changing established patterns of self-destruction and interpersonal discord. Rob has specific expertise in groups meant to foster not only coping skills, but also increased capacity for compassion, agency, and self-possession.
The groups we run over the course of the year—which may be run by Rob, Jamie, or co-run by both—are determined primarily by interest. If you are interested in learning more about groups please contact us.
