The primary focus of this group is to develop greater self awareness of how to cope with symptoms of depression. Regularly talking and listening to others helps you put your own problems in perspective. A member led open discussion about concerns/struggles; how they are affecting them, their loved ones, and how to develop greater self awareness. It can be a relief to hear others discuss what they're going through, and realize you're not alone. The group's facilitator will provide healthy psychoeducational skills to help promote greater self awareness.
*All groups at MVHC are lead by a LCSW
Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Why is it so hard to be happy? Why is life so difficult? And What can we do about it? ACT has some profound and life-changing answers to these questions. ACT is about taking action. It teaches individuals skills that allow them to let go of the struggle and suffering produced by trying to control the uncontrollable. It gets you in touch with what really matters in your life; your heart's deepest desires for whom you want to be and what you want to do. You will learn core values to guide, motivate, and inspire behavioral change to ultimately help you create a rich and meaningful life, while accepting the pain that life inevitably brings.
