Group Psychotherapy in Milwaukee

Milwaukee Group Psychotherapy is one of the many healing modalities offered by Annette E Madison MSW LCSW. Groups usually consist of six to ten members who have been carefully selected by the mental health professional leading the group in a shared journey of self-discovery. While some groups are composed of patients with different backgrounds, careers and lifestyles, some are specifically formed to assist those who have undergone similar traumas. Those experiencing grief, sexual abuse survivors, and survivors of violent crime can all benefit from the Milwaukee Group Psychotherapy programs. This therapy is also particularly useful for those who have difficulty navigating social interactions.

In a more varied group, patients are often encouraged to discuss whatever subjects they find pressing. In a trauma survivors’ group, however, the therapist may steer patients towards expressing their emotions concerning their experiences. In both cases, patients are never forced or pressured to share more than they feel capable of revealing to the group. But when a risk of vulnerability and self-disclosure is taken, the healing power of Milwaukee Group Psychotherapy blossoms, and the empowering nature of Milwaukee Group Psychotherapy allows patients to take a more active role in their healing. Patients learn to empathize, support and exchange feedback with one another in a respectful and sensitive manner. Over the course of the therapy, patients develop new responses and adequate coping mechanisms.

Annette E Madison MSW LCSW is committed to confidentiality and group members must likewise be willing to maintain the confidentiality of all that is shared during group sessions.
