For those who do not want individual counseling services, group therapy can be an equally effective and powerful form of treatment.
Our interactive “skills group” therapy sessions provide our patients with helpful strategies and tools that they can use in their everyday lives. These group sessions offer a mini classroom format with a more interactive approach, personalized for each individual member’s needs. Our “process groups” are more unstructured and focus on discussion and interaction among the individuals within the group. Additionally, Behavioral Clinic of Wausau offers single-session appointments and short-term group classes for other “everyday” challenges.
Patients will feel safe, comfortable and at home during either one of these group sessions. Each group member will take with them important lessons and life skills they can use for the rest of their lives in order to manage their mental illness. Whether you’re struggling with anxiety and fear, weight and self-esteem, depression, or any other issues, individuals, couples and families can benefit from group work.Learn more about current group therapy opportunities
