Where do men turn today to get help and support for their struggles with feelings, relationships, stress, and other problems? Studies suggest that a majority of men struggle in silence. They may be socially isolated, their marital and other relationship problems may result in an inability to talk things over, and a combination of fear and shame inhibit them from reaching out to others. This group will focus on a variety of men's issues including Fathers and Fatherhood; Sex and Sexuality; Money, Work, and Career; Integrity and Purpose; Health and Well-being; and Emotions and Communication, especially among the members within the group.

Group psychotherapy is a dynamic and effective form of change. Group members learn to deepen connections with others, improve communication, and make significant changes to the way they behave in relationships. People often develop ineffective communication styles in the context of growing up in hurtful or dysfunctional family systems. Group therapy is a means of coming to understand and profoundly change limiting and painful ways of being with others. It works to diminish isolation, guilt, and shame.
Group Therapist: Michelle Vitale, LMHC
Time: Every other Wednesday, 5:30pm - 7:00pm

DBT was developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., to help give people skills to manage their emotions and their lives more effectively. In our DBT group, you will learn many skills in the four categories of mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills help you to identify and manage your emotions, participate fully in the present moment, tolerate difficult situations, and improve interactions with your friends, family, and colleagues. The group is organized into two parts, 12 weeks each, and meets on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. You are encouraged but not required to participate in both parts. In the fall, we will cover the distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness modules, and in the spring we will cover the mindfulness and emotion regulation modules.
