The Anxiety Treatment Center of Austin offers treatment groups for a number of topics. Groups are an excellent way to receive help and support for anxiety and other concerns. Our groups meet weekly at our office, and are open to those who meet the groups’ criteria (though preference will be given to patients who are also seeing an Anxiety Treatment Center of Austin clinician for individual therapy). Our group clinicians have extensive experience leading groups in a variety of settings including outpatient clinics, college counseling centers, hospitals, and the VA.
Joining a Group
Prospective patients who are interested in joining a group at the Anxiety Treatment Center of Austin should contact us to schedule an initial evaluation. During the evaluation, one of our group clinicians will meet with those interested and discuss the group and treatment goals, and answer any questions. Group is run on an ongoing basis, and once a person has joined a group he or she may continue attending as long as they wish. We may request that a new group member commit to attending for a certain number of weeks. New group members will be added on a space-available basis.
The fee for our groups is $50 per week.
Our Group Model
One of the great advantages of a group is the ability to receive support and encouragement from others who are experiencing similar difficulties. Our groups provide plenty of opportunity for this to occur, but are not focused only on giving and receiving support. Our group leaders carefully select material focused on learning coping skills, building confidence, and living with anxiety. The goal of the group is to create a safe, positive, and active interpersonal environment in which all group members feel comfortable discussing their anxiety and trying new things.
