For many of us, our identity can be strongly tied into our gender. There is a significant amount of research that shows there are “core issues” unique to each sex and that individuals can benefit from exploring these issues through group counseling. For women the core issues can define our femineity, leading us to question our identity and the roles we hold within our lives. The media bombards us with the “ideal” images of women, but the ideals are not realistic or accurate. Still, they can prompt us to question ourselves, deplete our confidence, and set impossible standards we can never live up to. The Women’s Group is where you can get guidance and skills to try out new ways of relating to others, practice social skills, learn new coping methods, and develop new approaches to life stressors. The Women’s Group will have a general focus addressing issues that women typically struggle with today and will be open to content that you and/or other members specifically want to address.
Please note: Prior to starting a group counseling experience you will need to meet with or talk to the group’s facilitator to ensure the group will be able to meet your needs.
