Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Group Counseling focuses on meeting individual needs and goals in a setting with multiple clients at once. Group counseling has many benefits including: having social support, relating to other people, recognizing that one is not alone, minimizing financial payment, and seeing what has or has not worked for others. Group counseling empowers many individuals with a common concern to express their problems, identify obstacles to overcoming these, and develop a plan for success. These groups provide interaction with other people experiencing the same concerns, but in a therapeutic environment, with a licensed professional acting as a mediator. Abounding Aspirations currently has 2 groups established. One is specific to adolescents on probation with severe anger management difficulties. The other is a community service open to all adults for those experiencing grief or bereavement over the loss of a loved one.
