Weekly Group Therapy

Supportive Group Therapy

Right now, finding hope is more important than ever. If you’re searching for a foothold with redefining your role during distance learning and social distancing, please join “Coping During COVID-19 Supportive Group Therapy,” a new six-week program that will bring participants together for weekly telehealth group sessions.

Teen and adult groups will have separate sessions. The goal is for teens to learn strategies for hope, acceptance and healthy routines, and parents to learn effective parenting strategies.

Led by Chad Cartier, Aris Clinic’s Director for Psychotherapy, and the Aris Clinic clinical team, we’ll follow an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies to help you: 1) bring acceptance to your daily life; 2) set goals according to values and carry them out responsibly; 3) uncover the strength within you, and 4) develop new skills to persevere and thrive through this challenging time.

Each 60-Minute Session Will Include

  • Individual Check-In
  • Skill Building/Concept of the Week (compassion, values as parents, acceptance)
  • Support for Current Struggles
