Tubman offers a range of therapy groups for a variety of presenting concerns and needs. Some groups focus on skill-building and psychoeducation, and others emphasize more sharing and processing. Some of the groups require that clients also be working with an individual therapist. To participate in the Dialectic Behavior Therapy group, individuals must have an individual DBT therapist at Tubman.
Prior to starting in any group, we ask individuals to complete an intake session with one of our individual therapists to assess whether the group is a good fit and the appropriate level of care. Upon completing the intake, the therapist helps coordinate getting started in the group or if appropriate, makes another recommendation.
Including Parenting, Partnerships, and Family Relationships
Healthy Relationships Group
An open therapeutic group for individuals who identify as female. We offer a flexible, validating, and safe space that incorporates a blend of supportive discussion and psychoeducation. Our weekly group topics are tailored to what group members identify would be helpful based on their current challenges and successes. Topics often include- maintaining and setting boundaries; relationship safety; child development; relationship violence cycle; self-care; emotion regulation skills; and effective co-parenting. Facilitators pull from a few therapeutic modalities including DBT, strength-based, and person-centered approaches.
This group is a required part of Co-Occurring Disorder treatment, and meetings will take place at Tubman Chrysalis Center.

Trauma Skills Group
This psycho-educational therapy group is a closed 12-week group for individuals who want to learn and practice skills to manage and reduce the symptoms and disturbances to daily life caused by traumatic experiences. Individuals can use this group to address trauma from their past or present. This group focuses on symptom management rather than processing trauma.
Individuals interested in this group must be seeing a therapist for individual therapy before starting this group. A Trauma Process group is also available as a next level of care. This group meets at Tubman Chrysalis Center.

Relapse Prevention Support Group
Tubman is now offering a NEW Relapse Prevention Group for individual adults who identify as women.
2:00 - 4:00 p.m. Mondays, 12-week program
Open to adults 18+ who identify as women
Via Telehealth (Zoom)
Private and public insurance accepted, no chemical health assessment required
This 12-week group is designed for women who identify as being in recovery from substance use and would like to engage in a professionally facilitated, structured, time-limited group environment to strengthen their sobriety. A relapse may be a prompting event for attending this group, but members may also just be interested in ongoing recovery support.
Our group curriculum draws on dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, life skills, skills to help build healthy relationships and prioritize safety in relationships, and psychoeducation regarding substance use and mental health disorders. Our facilitators strive to provide a person-centered, trauma-informed environment. Our clinical content does not include 12-Step programming or meetings, however we encourage and support clients to pursue any long-term recovery community that resonates with them, and to share about their individual recovery path in the group process.
