The TAP Clinic offers a variety of psychotherapy groups. Each group has eligibility requirements for entry and their own fee schedule. 

Emotional Resiliency Group (Thursdays, 5:30-7:30pm)

This skills focused group aims to teach techniques from DBT, CBT, ACT, and mindfulness each aimed at helping clients engage with emotions effectively, without becoming overwhelmed or disengaged.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Group (Tuesdays, 5:00-7:00pm)

Leader: Daniel Merwin, LCMHC

Act for Life (AFL) is a 16-week group therapy treatment for individuals with substance use or co-occurring substance use and mental health difficulties that is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).  The group includes both didactic and experiential interventions as well as skills training such as managing cravings, refusal skills, and relapse prevention, among others.  These interventions are designed to improve understanding of how problematic substance use develops and is sustained within each person based their unique experiences, thoughts, and feelings and to provide strategies and skills to effectively manage or avoid substance use (abstinence).  As such, the group is appropriate for people seeking a harm reduction or abstinence based approach to recovery.

DBT Groups:

We are currently offering multiple DBT groups as part of our comprehensive adolescent and adult DBT programs. Clients may join a group after they have completed the intake process and at the next available group opening (typically every 6-8 weeks). 

 

Consistent with the empirically supported treatment model, clients who enroll in our comprehensive DBT program are required to participate in individual therapy with an intensively trained DBT therapist. Clients are also asked to commit to 24 group sessions (6-8 months), which will cover one full round of the DBT skills. All TAP individual DBT clients are eligible for our groups; some additional paperwork is required for clients who see individual therapists outside of TAP. New clients must first schedule an intake session to determine goodness of fit for the program.
