Group Therapy

Five Rivers Mental Health Clinic operates a variety of psychotherapy groups depending on client need. Group therapy offers a unique way of learning and practicing skills from therapy. Clients can learn from and with peers facing similar issues. Groups sometimes include mindfulness-based stress reduction, social skills, parenting skills, and emotional regulation. Please ask if you are interested in a group that is not currently offered as they will be added based on client interest.

Groups sometimes offered include Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and parenting groups. Parenting groups provide general parenting education and support but also sometimes target particular concerns such as parenting gender creative children.

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy Group

Rebecca McCabe, MS, LPCC is starting a Parent-Child Interaction Therapy Group. Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a behavioral parent training program that involves working with parent(s) and their child (ages 2 to 10) to enhance parent-child relationships. PCIT encourages positive interactions between parent and child by training parents to use play therapy skills during child-led, creative, constructional activities. It also focuses on teaching parents behavior management techniques to decrease negative child behavior, such as defiance and aggression, through parent-led interactions.

The PCIT group is a seven-week program and meets on Mondays from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Participants must call first to reserve a seat and are required to attend the full seven sessions. A new PCIT group will begin at the end of August, 2017.
