The ability to form and maintain healthy social relationships is crucial to your sense of belonging and psychological health. Mental health disorders can produce destructive thought and behavior patterns that can interfere with appropriate social functioning, leading to conflicted interpersonal relationships and isolation from valuable support networks. Many people in emotional distress struggle with living in the present, understanding social nuances, and relating to others. At Bridges to Recovery, we seek to address these common experiences through a specialized therapy group that supports the development of the insight and skills necessary for positive relationship formation.
Our Process Group allows you to explore your communication style and social skills in a supportive setting, led by highly trained therapists. Through introspective and practical exercises, you are able to identify problematic perspectives and behaviors that stand in the way of mutually beneficial, satisfying social relationships. By becoming aware of yourself and the impact you have on others, you can gain insight into your past experiences while developing the skills to enhance meaningful social bonding. In a safe, non-judgmental space, you receive thoughtful professional and peer feedback to help you understand yourself as a social actor and learn to regulate your emotions and behavior to improve your quality of life in the here and now.
