Call to Register 410-551-2455

Runs out of our Rockville location

$20 PER SESSION CASH OR CREDIT ONLY

This group aims to create a safe space for individuals who identify as LGBTQ to interact with others who are facing similar issues in a supportive environment. It allows each of the members to discuss their own sexual development, positive identity formation, and create/contribute to their support system.

By addressing the issues that are specific to adolescents, this group facilitates a therapeutic atmosphere that identifies issues such as: sexual identity disclosure, social media/online dating, societal influences, and positive coping strategies that enhance healthy development. Furthermore, the topics that are discussed during sessions will be offered in tandem with parental groups that allow other family members to be involved in the counseling service. 


Anger Management Group

Anger is a complex emotion which is characterized by strong feelings of tension and hostility arising from a myriad of sources including failures, disappointments, and frustration. Cognitive Behavioral Approach (CBA) is the most effective modality of treatment. CBA identifies and addresses three dimensions of anger (cognition, behavior and affect), based on the notion that externalizing behaviors stem from both cognitive distortion and poor self-control when aroused. This model of treatment places emphasis on reducing the cognitive, behavioral, and physiological responses associated with anger, while increasing nonaggressive, socially appropriate responses to the emotion.

Currently not running. Will resume upon referral basis.

 

 Group Sex offender Treatment for Youth and Adults

RUNS FROM ROCKVILLE LOCATION. INITIAL ASSESSMENT REQUIRED.

INSURANCE NOT ACCEPTED FOR SEX OFFENDER TREATMENT AND ASSESSMENT

This group utilizes a relapse prevention model focused on working with participants to discuss their current or past sexual offenses or sexually inappropriate behavior, as well as learn ways to avoid future occurrences of any type of inappropriate or harmful sexual activity.

The overarching goal of treatment is to address   any denial, identify and manage risk factors, enhance empathy for the victims (i.e., increased awareness of the impact of sexual offense(s) on the victim(s)/families) and develop prosocial skills. Accordingly, a broad mix of cognitive-behavioral techniques are utilized to help the participant identify sexual triggers as well as dysfunctional/maladaptive sexual cognitions and fantasies, and situations that could lead to sexually risky thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Additionally, the participant is educated about appropriate and inappropriate sexual behaviors and healthy interpersonal   relationships.
