On-Going Psychotherapy Groups at Collaborative Care
A very viable and productive adjunct to individual psychotherapy is the Psychotherapy Group. This is a therapist led but member responsive addition to any therapy treatment regimen where members facing similar issues or circumstance can find help, support, and guidance through the use of this therapeutic community. Collaborative Care will be offering Psychotherapy groups at its various locations. Some of the groups are already underway, can be joined and will be expanded to our other locations.

Do you have trouble managing emotions? Are interpersonal relationships tough for you? Do you have a lot of difficulty with stress management? This may be the group for you.

You will be receiving hands on skills to use in your day to day life, as well as support from others who suffer from similar conditions to you. Most insurances are accepted.

DBT Group- Bala Cynwyd Location. Lead by Billie Lee Orenbuch
August 22, 2018 - Wednesdays 2-3:30pm for 16 weeks.
In Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, we are attempting to train people in acceptable coping skills when they are triggered into having emotional reactions. To do this, clients who have impulsive behaviors that are triggered by reminders of abuse they have suffered, are taught Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Mindfulness. I use a workbook that clients would need to purchase to take course, Out of Control by Melanie Sheets. The woman who wrote this book had extensive training in addictions when she took DBT training. She uses examples of how people get off track with their behavior. Most clients can relate to this.
Please call Billie Lee Orenbuch 484-270-8817 x 314 for more information.
