Why Group Therapy

In my years of experience asa psychologist and group leader, I found that patients often join groups reluctantly, but they fall in love with it right away.  

Group therapy is one of the only places that one can talk about anything at all, solve private and difficult problemswithout riskingconfidentiality and gossip.  What you talk in group stays in group.  Individuals experience being part of something, learn and role play difficult situations from home and work, and improve their ability to interact with otherseffectively.  Group therapy is one of the best antidotes to social isolation and the need to always watch what you say.  

This year we are trying something new

Care for the Caregiver

Individual and group supervision can be the place for practitioners in psychology, counseling, and social work to attend to their own needs and manage the effects of comassion fatigue, burnout, and simple heartache associated with repeated exposure to patients who are hurting.

Individual and group supervision can also be used to expand one's knowledge base and use group interaction or one on one interaction to solve problems by distancing self and removing one's self from the strong attacjment that is oftencreated in the therapy room.  The bond while extremely helpful for the patient, at times becomes overwhelming to the therapist. 

Dr Goldwater provided group and individual supervision and training to other psychologists and mental health providers since 1991. 

The topics always included supervising and training mental health providers to increase their skills working with children, youth, and their families, and to expand the participants' knowledge in family systems theory and practice.   

Call Dr. Goldwater if you are a practicing therapist seeking: case supervision, ongoing group or individual supervision, or if you wish to expand your clinical skills working with couples and families. Additionally, learn to notice signs ofcompassion fatigue, burn out related to repeated exposure to others' pain and suffering.
