When a group of individuals with similar issues gather to discuss a common concern or way of coping with a condition, it is called a support group. Support Groups at the Center for Growth, Inc (support groups in Philadelphia, Ocean City, Mechanicsville, Santa Fe) are led by experienced therapists who are skilled at facilitating discussion and promoting learning among group members. A support group is typically attended by 6-12 people and last 1 -2 hours. We offer two types of groups: educational support groups and therapeutic groups. Our educational support groups are designed to help people adjust to both normative and non-normative life changes and conditions, such as pregnancy and postpartum baby blues. Our therapeutic support groups are designed to help people cope with particular mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, grief, sex addiction, codependency, herpes, mindfulness, chronic pain, personality issues, or being single. Our therapy groups are typically 1.5-2 hours and the work is for more focused and designed to engage individuals on a therapeutic level. All of our groups are located in Philadelphia PA, Ocean City NJ, Mechanicsville VA and Santa Fe NM.

Support groups can deepen one’s understanding of an issue through the process of group interaction. In a support group participants will interact with peers who are struggling with similar concerns. These individuals are often able share tips for managing a problem or condition and to candidly discuss the associated challenges and pitfalls. In a peer group setting, a client not only is able to explore the underlying dynamics of a particular issue, but also to understand how he or she copes with that issue in relation to others.

Benefits of educational and therapeutic support groups:

  • Provide and receive emotional support
  • Learn from fellow participants
  • Obtain practical advice
  • Develop friendships and reduce sense of isolation
  • Hear different perspectives
  • Save money – groups are often less expensive than individual therapy

Many people participate in individual therapy, couples therapy, or family therapy and support groups simultaneously. Participating in a support group in addition to other types of therapy can enhance one’s experience by providing alternative perspectives and providing a safe and supportive atmosphere in which to practice newly acquired behaviors and skills.
