At the Louisville OCD Clinic we currently offer several suppport groups. Please call or email if you would like to participate. Also, we sometimes add groups, or change times, so please contact us.
What this group offers in particular is direct instruction on mindfulness-meditation, and how to use mindfulness meditation to: 1) understand how your “thinking mind” has the potential to increase or decrease stress, 2) experience emotions without becoming overwhelmed, and 3) develop more positivity and compassion towards yourself, your life, and those around you.
This group is for adults that have struggled with depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or a similar issue. The group focuses on issues that can be barriers to treatment progress, such as feelings of isolation, loneliness, social withdrawal, stress, family and relationship discord, untrustworthiness, lack of motivation, difficulty making decisions, and being overwhelmed. This group enables members to recognize that they are not alone with experiencing these issues and begin to build rapport with others. In addition, members learn healthy coping strategies to feel more empowered in their lives and improve work and social relationships.
Mindful Self-Compassion, or MSC, is a group designed to directly remove shame and self-blame, and has been shown by research to improve psychiatric symptoms. Along with self-compassion skills taught during group, you will receive meditation instruction, reading lists, and a host of other resources to truly become your own best friend.
This 90-minute group is for adults currently in treatment for OCD, anxiety, or depression. The focus is on learning techniques to inhibit relapse following or during treatment. This is a therapist-facilitated group for support, encouragement, and camaraderie.
he Inner Radiance Group is for individuals dealing with trichotillomania (hair pulling) and/or excoriation (skin picking). The group will discuss compensatory and healthy coping strategies. The group is also designed to engender more social engagement and expression of thoughts and feelings.
