Our groups are supervised by a licensed team member and will meet all the same standards of the IOP of our signature continuum.
The goal of the group is to divert participants to find competitive integrated employment. The client practices and learns social skills by solving group situations which are essential for job searching and job placement. Participants receive continued help, support, assistance and encouragement of situational tasks –from each other as well- to get back to the labor market.
This Hiking group explores the great outdoors of Boulder and takes advantage of the many surrounding scenic trails twice a week. We design each hike to address the specific needs of clients, build community, and deepen the connection to nature.
The Movement group aims to help clients increase their relationships with their bodies. By using movement to describe an experience, people can express feelings that would otherwise go unsaid. Here we take an introductory look into the connection of movement and the mind while building a sense of community and connection through games and other structured movement activities.
Treehouse Planning Session
This group gives clients the opportunity to participate in their recovery plan and voice what they seek from the psychosocial program. We review any desires that they have toward connecting and contributing to the community or improving the space. It’s also a time for people to meaningfully get to know each other and develop friendships outside of a therapeutic setting.
The Wellness therapy group contributes to personal growth using a combination of therapeutic coping skills, healthy living, and social skills enhancement.
Transitional Living Community Meeting
Meeting in person in our beautiful backyard or in the park across the street, we connect as a community by sharing each client’s accomplishments with their mental health recovery and moving through the stages of independence. Fun community building activities including cooking meals together, yard games, yoga, gardening, and practice of social skills.
Expressive Writing Group
Expressive writing has been shown to have a variety of positive effects on mental health and well-being. It is focused on process, not product so that there are no judgements about whether writing is ‘good’ – you cannot do it ‘wrong’. Expressive Writing Group is always a creative space to write; listening to what others write is a way of forming connections and sharing experience. Having your words received by others is affirming, hearing what others write is an act of compassion. Reflection Writing allows people to find insight and know themselves, and each other, better. We use gentle writing prompts from poetry and journaling to guide people to write whatever they need to write. Sometimes powerful poetry emerges and people resonate with each other’s experience.
Horticulture Therapy Group
The basic premise behind horticultural therapy is that working with and around plants brings about positive psychological and physical changes that improve general wellness. Direct contact with plants helps guide a person’s focus away from stress, creates a sense of community and connection that focuses on growth, and teaches self-reliance all while providing a support system.
Ecotherapy also known as Nature Therapy or Green Therapy explores the healing connection between people and nature. This group will incorporate the broad range of modalities that fall under the Ecotherapy umbrella, such as forest bathing, animal assisted therapies, and green exercise. The curriculum focuses on the individual connection each person has with nature and deepening that connection to use as a tool for healing and improving mental and physical health.
