Below is a little more information on the basic structure and the initial prerequisites of SEAR Group. It’s important to talk with your counselor, physician or discharge planner so they can help you decide if this is the best option for you at this time. SEAR Group is not an IOP, nor is it a replacement for one. Your healing and recovery is important; it’s literally your life. Talk with a professional to make sure this level of care is right for you.
Basic Structure of The SEAR Group Series
The SEAR Groups meet twice (2x) a week for eight (8x) weeks for a total of sixteen (16x) modules that are heavily process-oriented.
Each group runs for 2 hours (120 minutes).
Groups are led by seasoned professionals who are trained, experienced and credentialed. (We offer a professional service, not just overseen by but actually delivered by professionals.)
Groups are purposely kept small; a maximum of 8 to 10 participants. This is to more quickly develop appropriate emotional intimacy, to cultivate a culture of trust within the group and to ensure an enriched personal experience for our clients. (*you will never sit in a group of 15, 20 or even more people watching videos and filling out antiquated handouts – in our opinion that is a classroom, not a therapy group, and offers little clinical value.)
