Group therapy is a powerful resource that can promote a greater understanding and a new perspective through empowering a changed attitude that will promote joy, peace, and contentment despite your pain. Group is a safe environment to explore options and to get feedback from a wide variety of thoughts and feelings. We will gain awareness of how our actions play a part and impact others. This is a place to assess the triumphs and the setbacks and to get and give support to those who are experiencing many of the same problems that you may be experiencing. You will come to realize that you are not alone as others come alongside you in your struggles to provide mutual support by sharing experiences, strengths, and hopes.
To live our lives to the fullest by minimizing the effects of chronic pain in our lives, while increasing our overall daily functioning and helping others to do the same.
Embark on the journey from a patient in pain to a person who manages chronic pain one day at a time.
Gain support from other group members on how they have coped, exploring what has and has not worked. We will focus on abilities, not disabilities. You will learn to set priorities, reach goals, & assert your basic rights.
Gain insight into how your chronic pain is affecting your loved ones in much the same way as the pain affects you, learning to create a “new normal.”
Address topics such as isolation, uncertainty, fear, depression, grief, guilt, self-worth, anger, and the loss of career or job due to chronic pain.
