JERSEYVILLE — WellSpring Resources’ Jerseyville office is ringing in the New Year with new group therapy experiences for adults.
The groups “Confidence is an Inside Job,” “Happiness is a Circular Motion” and “Finding Peace Amongst the Chaos,” among others, will begin in January.
Group therapy is a type of therapy in which clinicians work with several people, usually with similar diagnoses or experiences, at the same time. This type of treatment allows group members to receive treatment and benefit from the support and knowledge of their peers. Typical groups at WellSpring Resources involve 10 to 12 group participants and are led by a trained therapist or counselor.
Group therapy can help individuals cope with many types of mental health conditions and issues, including ADHD, anger, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, low self-esteem and stress. The new groups at WellSpring Resources’ Jerseyville office will focus on teaching practical skills and coping techniques that will help participants in their everyday lives.
“Confidence is an Inside Job” will help participants improve self-image and positive thinking. The group will run on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to noon.
“Happiness is a Circular Motion” will help participants recognize, accept, and promote happiness. The group will run from noon to 1 p.m. Thursdays.
“Finding Peace Amongst the Chaos” will help participants manage their emotions, as well as improve communication and stress management skills. The group will run from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Fridays.
Before an individual can enroll in group services, he or she must complete an assessment as WellSpring Resources. A trained clinician will help individuals determine if Group Services will help meet their mental health needs. Call (618) 639-2010 for information or to begin the assessment process.
