If you answered "yes" to any of these...

Connections: Understanding Self and Others is for you!!

This group is a supportive, nurturing and safe environment where everyone works together to move toward their goals by providing encouragement to one another, giving and receiving feedback, and experimenting with new ideas and behaviors by learning how to connect to each other in the group. Participants learn better ways to form meaningful relationships. Develop insight about yourself and your relationship patterns, and identify and explore feelings. Many participants talk about the strong bonds they form with others in the group, how group helped them be more open with and feel closer to people in their life, how they view themselves more positively and feel more empowered as a result of group, and how much they miss group when it ends. Come be a part of this powerful experience!

This group requires an initial assessment at CAPS. The therapist will help you schedule a brief screening interview to see that the group will adequately address your reasons for coming to the group.

Use the group interest form with questions or to express interest in this group to the facilitator(s).
