Parent Leadership Group Therapy
Group Therapy allows parents/caregivers from multiple families to join together to learn strategies, build insight, and develop self-compassion. The unique advantage of this model is the peer support and motivation to try new strategies and to keep up your perseverance with strategies that may take a bit longer to work, as well as gaining a sense of validation that being a parent, who feels stressed or just wants to grow, is normal. The model includes direction, intervention, and moderation by Dr. Blevins to ensure therapeutic gains targeted toward parenting wellness. The therapy includes aspects of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a values and action flexibility approach. It also includes aspects of Applied Behavior Analysis, a method founded on the principles of behavior and learning.
These sessions individualize goals and target treatment for each set of parents/caregivers. The target of these groups will not be to treat mental illness in the parent participants; thus, the groups will not meet criteria for insurance reimbursement. Many companies have wellness programs that will pay for a portion or all of these sessions.
There are 6 sessions in total. They are structured to build off each other, so attendance for each session is ideal and helpful for you to get the most of your commitment to yourself and your family through this therapy.
Fall scheduling is happening now. A wait list is used on a first-come first-served basis. New rounds will begin every couple months. Because this is a peer-support model, Dr. Blevins will give you a questionnaire to complete before offering you a spot. This will help her determine which group, if any, might best meet your needs or if a different referral might be more appropriate.
Cost: $900 for two parents/caregivers for six 2-hour sessions.
This is equivalent to $37.50 per person/ per hour, which is typical for many people’s co-pays when going to therapy.
If you’re a single parent and will be attending alone, a discount is offered: The cost is $600 for the six 2-hour sessions.
