The more general aspects of the program provide a format within which a therapeutic “group” dynamic is fostered, serving as a nurturing environment in which participants can freely discuss their problems, as well as test strategies for coping. At the same time, clinicians conducting group sessions will be monitoring and evaluating the individual needs of each participant, with the goal of maximizing the benefit of the program to each individual participant as the program proceeds toward completion.

It is anticipated that clients will benefit by:

- Realizing they are not alone. In a supportive group therapy experience, participants will cultivate coping tools and personal strategies for successfully maneuvering through the daily challenges of their lives. They will learn to prevent crises, and they will be encouraged to develop an understanding of themselves and of others, enabling personal growth and the capacity to find a sense of purpose as part of the larger community. The goal is sustained stabilization.

- Receiving cognitive behavioral therapy. The group approach encourages openness and honest recognition of challenges; the consideration of the factors impacting each individual within the group will lead to choices in emphasis by clinicians skilled in utilizing cognitive behavioral methods to gently guide individual patients toward a better future.

- Finding new motivation. It is hoped that patients will bring with them to the program the motivation to change, and a willingness to do so in a group session. It is intended that, after participating in the program, they will have a positive outlook on their capacity to successfully navigate through all their future endeavors.
