Group therapy for adults provides a unique opportunity to understand one's current circumstances in the context of others who are experiencing similar situations.  Groups are typically interactive and feedback can come from the therapist and/or other group members who often provide unique insights.

The Psychological Center offers a number of groups for adults (individual's 18 years and older).  For additional information about these groups call 212.650.6602.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy Group

Tuesdays from 7:00-8:30 P.M.

Established in 2009, the Interpersonal Psychotherapy Group offers a rich, collaborative, and safe environment for adults to work towards gaining a better understanding of themselves and others.  Emphasizing the here-and-now relationships between group members, the co-leaders facilitate the group in a way that helps each member to develop not only improved relationships within the group, but also in the outside world in the realms of work, romance, family, and friendships. Ultimately, the goal of the group is to help each member build a stronger sense of self through the recognition, experiencing, and sharing of emotion and to resolve the obstacles that interfere with members' realizing their potential.

Group Membership Criteria:

To be determined after consultation and intake sessions.

Wednesdays from 6:00-7:00 P.M.

This is an open-ended psychotherapy group for women seeking a safe environment to talk about difficult life experiences. The group welcomes members who have encountered past or present trauma including, but not limited to, emotional, sexual, and physical abuse. These experiences can often lead us to feel sad, hopeless, and stuck in unfulfilling relationships. In this group, members will find ways to understand their traumatic experiences in the context of their everyday lives. The goals of the group include encouraging members to build on existing strengths so they can achieve an enhanced sense of safety and agency in their lives.

Group Membership Criteria:

         Women only


Wednesdays From 5:00-6:15 P.M.

Sessions will aim to facilitate individual and group processing around the experience of mourning and other existential questions activated by the challenges of loss.  

Group Membership Criteria:

Adults, preferably in individual treatment.
