  • Arts-Informed Therapeutic Groups for adults (8 weeks)

This group is for the professional person who is experiencing interpersonal difficulties with co-workers in professional environments. Emphasizing feedback, decision making, and problem solving, Therapeutic Groups or T-groups focus on enhancing organizational skills through group process.  Our model incorporates this method with directed artmaking to provide an experiential component to externalizing feedback.

Groups goal: Group members will co-construct group goals during the first session identifying specific group process and individual outcome goals.

  • Identity Groups for adolescents (4 weeks)

Conflict in relation to identity formation is often the root of adolescent cognitive dissonance, a state of disequilibrium. This group explores cultural and social factors involved in identity formation with an emphasis on peer support and “witnessing” techniques in the co-construction of healthy verbal and visual narratives of self.

Group goal: From a narrative and experiential framework, group members will deconstruct “myths” and misconceptions about self-identity to co-create healthy narratives of self.

  • Grief and Loss Groups for children (4 weeks)

Nonverbal forms of communication are essential in the processing of grief and loss with young and elementary school-age children. This art-based group incorporates the creation of sculptural memorials/altars, visual legacies through phototherapy and collage techniques, box art as a form of containment and sense of safety, as well as an ongoing visual exploration of the meaning of grief and loss. (Please note, Dr. Warson is a widow and has personal and professional experience with grief and loss involving children.)

Group goal: Using gestalt art therapy techniques, group members will utilize the art process to explore “here and now experiences” to support children grieving.
