Group Therapy in New York

Specialized Group Therapy Techniques

Modern Therapy Group takes pride in offering a diverse array of group therapy specialties, each tailored to foster particular areas of mental and emotional well-being:

Cognitive Behavioral Groups

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a well-established form of psychotherapy that’s been rigorously tested and proven effective. In our Cognitive Behavioral Groups, we facilitate a deep and meaningful examination of thought patterns. It’s a collaborative effort where group members learn to identify, challenge, and alter negative thoughts and beliefs. The group setting provides multiple perspectives, allowing everyone to see how common and conquerable their struggles with distorted thinking can be. We provide tools and techniques for members to:

  • Recognize and reframe automatic negative thoughts
  • Develop personalized coping strategies
  • Practice these strategies within the group and in real-life scenarios

Interpersonal Groups

Our Interpersonal Groups focus on exploring and improving the quality of your interactions with others. Within these sessions, you’ll gain insight into how your communication styles, relationship roles, and social expectations affect your mental health. By examining these patterns in a safe space, you can:

  • Develop healthier communication and boundaries
  • Enhance empathy and understanding in relationships
  • Build a robust support network

Addiction Support Groups

Addiction can be a lonely and isolating experience, but our Addiction Support Groups provide a beacon of hope. These sessions are not just about discussing challenges; they are about sharing victories and setbacks alike, which creates a community of accountability and encouragement. Here, members:

  • Learn from others’ experiences with substance, pornography, and gambling addictions
  • Exchange practical recovery strategies and resources
  • Foster resilience through mutual support

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Groups

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) offers a skillful blend of cognitive and behavioral therapies with mindfulness principles. In our DBT groups, participants work on accepting uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, and behaviors while also striving to change them. This balance helps in:

  • Developing distress tolerance for handling crisis situations
  • Enhancing interpersonal effectiveness for robust relationships
  • Cultivating emotional regulation to manage intensity and frequency of challenging emotions

Eating Concerns + Body Image Groups

Our groups dedicated to repairing your relationship with food and body image provide an empathetic platform to confront and combat the societal pressures and personal issues that contribute to these conditions. The group setting helps normalize struggles and promotes healing by:

  • Sharing strategies for developing a healthy relationship with food and body image
  • Providing peer support to bolster self-esteem and positive self-perception
  • Offering a non-judgmental environment to discuss vulnerabilities

Trauma-Informed Group Sessions

Trauma can significantly impact one’s mental health and quality of life. Our Trauma-Informed Groups are designed with a deep understanding of the complexities of trauma. The aim is to create a validating community where participants can:

  • Share their stories in a space that recognizes the prevalence and impact of trauma
  • Learn coping mechanisms that are specific to trauma survivors
  • Support each other’s healing processes
