Interactive Discovery offers group therapy and workshops for adults, children, and teens addressing a variety of concerns. Groups and workshops provide a unique opportunity for participants to build skills and knowledge; and to share and learn from peers, receiving supportive feedback in a comfortable environment. As clinicians we often hear our adult and child clients alike wondering, “Do other people feel this way? Is this normal?” The group setting offers a space where feelings and experiences are validated and participants feel less isolated in their struggles. Our groups usually run from 8 to 12 weeks with a few opportunities for shorter groups focused on psychoeducation or skill building.
We assess the needs of the Brooklyn community we serve through our strong relationships with other health professionals, school personnel, parents, community organizations; and by hearing from our clients and their loved ones. It is important to us to meet our community’s needs and so we are often forming groups and workshops specifically to meet requests.
Our many years of experience facilitating groups and workshops; and our history of successful program development and implementation make our groups exciting, enriching, and supportive for our participants.
