Individual Therapy – The Regeneration Project therapists are skilled at working with consumers who are normally resistant to traditional therapy. Our therapy sessions take place in the home and community settings where our consumers are most comfortable, thereby, enhancing the likelihood of their full participation. Therapeutic rapport (relationship) between the consumer and the therapist is an essential component to effective treatment. Once the consumer has developed a level of trust with the therapist, real work can occur. Sessions typically occur once per month or more frequently based on the therapist and consumer agreement.
Family Therapy is a very important component of treatment at The Regeneration Project. In this role, we seek to facilitate communication within the family so that routine and critical issues might be resolved in a healthy manner. Family therapy has been shown to effectively treat problems such as:
• Drug abuse
Sessions typically occur once per month but depending on the severity of the problem(s) could occur on a bi-weekly basis.
Group Therapy – The Regeneration Project therapist will facilitate a small group of consumers who have similar issues. A controlled environment amongst peers can be very effective in helping consumers understand that they are not alone with regard to whatever issue(s) they are struggling with.
Benefits of Group Therapy:
- Groups provide a safety net for support and knowledge that they are not alone. Hearing from others with similar issues helps consumers understand that they are not alone in having challenges such as panic attacks, depression, or other mental health issues.
- Groups provide a Magic Mirror and Reflection. Consumers have opportunities to discuss their issues in a group and receive feedback from persons experiencing similar issues. This process affords the consumer sharing his or her concerns to hear how non-related parties might respond or address the concern. Learning how others might handle similar situations can be very helpful and promote growth.
- Groups are encouraging forces toward growth. The team approach builds confidence and courage to address issues that serve as obstacles. Learning how other consumers deal with and overcome issues provide a source of strength to attack issues that often seem insurmountable.
- Groups promote unity and cooperativeness for social skills. The Group process sets in motion the principle of commonality. Commonality in a structured group setting breaks down the walls of uncertainty of how persons believe they will be received. This process promotes more comfort amongst the group participants, thereby enhancing the interaction and opportunity to grow socially.
