Expressive Arts based Trauma Recovery Group 

At Forward Counseling we believe in the resiliency of the human spirit, but we also understand that our clients are busy people that must continue to function.  We address trauma SLOWLY, CAREFULLY, & MINDFULLY. This is an ongoing small group that you can join at any time. It takes 9 sessions to complete Trauma Group but you work at your own pace. We have done outcome studies on this group and found it effective at reducing symptoms associated with trauma.

In order to register for Trauma Group, each client must be engaged with an individual therapist.  We teach coping skills, mindfulness, and approach trauma from a distance with art and imagination before we use words to describe trauma.  This approach appears to reduce abreaction and other side effects associated with trauma therapy.  We also address disassociation in all of Forward Counseling trauma groups. This group is covered by most insurance.
