Group sessions are an integral component of the Claudia Black Young Adult Center’s treatment program. Groups range from psychoeducational, experiential, to open process. Same-gender small groups are also fundamental to the program, providing a greater sense of safety and trust among their peers. It often creates an environment for greater honesty and frequently lessens distraction.
