GROUP THERAPY

The set up and process of Group Therapy is a follows:

The therapist gives each participant a board, dry erase makers,  16 "I feel statements." and a shopping basket.

The therapist places 23 numerically ordered rectangular bins around a table These bins include 113 printed themed squares.  The Therapist also lays out dry erase magnetic figurines, house and shapes on the table.

Once a theme is determined for the group,  the clients will then shop for thier squares and figurines/shapes that resonate with them. Once they have thier peices, they will take them back to their seats and personal board.  Each client will then create thier board. Each client will then ideally share their thoughts/feelings associated with their creation with the therapist and/or group. 

With permission from client, therapist then takes a picture of each clients work which is then bound in a binder to reflect on in therapy.
