Sometimes it is helpful to explore with a group. The group can inspire, keep you on track and allow you to try things out in community. A group can be a great way to practice skills and define boundaries. Groups that I have led in the past have included the following:* a general support group* grief and loss groups* self revelatory performance groups* groups for youth on the autism spectrum* a group for older adults exploring their life story* a group for women with eating disorders * drama therapy groupsAnd more.
