Group therapy for young adults is one of the cornerstones of life at The Dorm. Engaging in therapeutic support alongside peers leads to better clinical outcomes reinforces the development of critical social and emotional skills. Group therapy reinforces that we are not alone, and that by working together as a community we can achieve new goals.
At The Dorm all of our group therapy sessions are designed specifically for young adults (ages 18-30) and allow our clients to meet peers within the community, foster new camaraderie and engage in supported social skills.

Does A Dorm Client Have To Attend
All Of The Groups?
All group schedules are completely customized depending on each young adult’s clinical needs. When a client starts at The Dorm, our team works in conjunction with them, their family and any outside providers to outline a group therapy
schedule that best meets their goals.
Select groups are held ‘off-site’ in neighboring parks or in the community (i.e. if they involve
exposure therapy, guided grocery shopping, social skills or cooking classes).
