Group therapy is often an excellent supplement to individual therapy. It can also be helpful for those who have recently left individual therapy or those who have not been to therapy before, but would like to try it. Safe Haven Trauma Services offers a variety of groups including: Teen groups, Trauma Resourcing Group, Highly Sensitive Person Group, Narcissistic Abuse Recovery Group, Trauma-Informed DBT group, and Dissociative Disorders support group.
Trauma and Dissociation
This is a support group for those who have experienced complex childhood trauma and are struggling with the long-term impacts of that trauma. It is most appropriate for those who struggle with significant dissociation including those with DID, OSDD, and complex PTSD.
According to Dr. Elaine Aron, high sensitivity is a trait found in 15-20% of the population. It is not a disorder. Often HSPs grow up being told that they are “shy” or “too sensitive.” Rather, highly sensitive persons (HSPs) pick up on subtleties because their brains process information on a deeper level.
Relationship Recovery Group
Have you experienced toxic or unhealthy relationships that continue to impact you and your relationships today? Toxic relationships can refer to those that involve physical or sexual abuse, but they can also include relationships where you were lied to, manipulated, or taken advantage of.
Adult DBT Skills Training Group
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of Cognitive Behavior Therapy that was created by Marsha Linehan to treat suicidal and self-harm behaviors that are often seen in Borderline Personality Disorder. It has since been found effective in treating other complex issues involving emotion dysregulation. It can be helpful for those with uncontrollable outbursts, mood disorders, trauma, addiction, eating disorders, anxiety, unstable interpersonal relationships, and other compulsive behavior. Individuals that struggle with controlling their emotions and behaviors may benefit from the skills that DBT group offers.
