In this ten-week group, we will learn about our psychology in interpersonal dynamics, practicing both reflective and active skills to increase relationship health. Group members share about challenging interpersonal dynamics, receive support and feedback, and practice skills amongst each other.
This group focuses on untangling codependent dynamics by better understanding the indirect ways we attempt to get our needs met. People who may benefit from this group recognize that there are some unhealthy dynamics happening under the surface of a relationship(s) in their lives, and feel ready to look at their own part in that dynamic, empowering themselves to shift it.
