GROUPS, WORKSHOPS AND CONSULTATION
Cornerstone Counseling Inc. offers interactive facilitation of groups depending on specific needs and a flexible format based on your preference. Agencies, schools, churches, businesses and youth groups have utilized our services in the past. Our fees are dependent upon group size and number of meetings.
Here’s what the American Psychological Society (APA) has to say about the benefits of working in a group.
You’re Not Alone …“Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. Psychologists say, in fact, that group members are almost always surprised by how rewarding the group experience can be.
Groups can act as a support network and a sounding board. Other members of the group often help you come up with specific ideas for improving a difficult situation or life challenge, and hold you accountable along the way.
Regularly talking and listening to others also helps you put your own problems in perspective. Many people experience mental health difficulties, but few speak openly about them to people they don’t know well. Oftentimes, you may feel like you are the only one struggling — but you’re not. It can be a relief to hear others discuss what they’re going through, and realize you’re not alone.”
Diversity is another important benefit of group therapy. People have different personalities and backgrounds, and they look at situations in different ways. By seeing how other people tackle problems and make positive changes, you can discover a whole range of strategies for facing your own concerns.”
Participating in a small group may assist you with the following:
- Addictive behavior
- Relationship conflicts
- Self worth/Identity
- Spiritual discovery and growth

We are passionately committed to bring a greater awareness of this epidemic to communities in an effort to lower the number of suicide attempts and successes.
