Group Therapy at All Souls Counseling Center
ASCC provides group therapy based on specific needs and issues that arise. Group participation is voluntary, but requires a recommendation by your therapist and/or screening by the group therapist. Below are the current groups being offered at ASCC. For more information on group therapy, please call our Center at (828)-259-3369.
Survivors of Suicide Loss Group [FULL]
Losing a loved one who was a victim of suicide is often the most difficult journey anyone will experience in their lifetime. Survivors may feel guilty, ashamed, and responsible, and society often places a stigma on suicide.
To help survivors on this difficult journey, All Souls Counseling Center and NAMI WNC have formed an 8-session Survivors of Suicide Loss Group.
This group began in October 2023. The next group will take place at the beginning of 2024. Please call our Center at (828)-259-3369 to learn more about joining this group!
DBT Group Therapy
In April 2023, Elizabeth Likis, PhD., facilitated an affordable DBT Group at ASCC. It provided a safe space to learn and practice skills for being in the moment, accepting what is, and changing your response to situations.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidenced based approach developed by Marsha Linehan to address those who struggle with regulating intense emotions, may have a history of trauma, have challenges in relationships, poor coping skills, substance use, and impulse control. DBT combines mindfulness practice with cognitive behavioral therapy and crisis response in a supportive environment. The group is skills-based and will cover the four modules: Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regulation, and Distress Tolerance.
