Divorce Support Groups
The dissolution of a marriage is almost always an upsetting event, at the very least marked by disappointment and the loss of dreams and expectations.

A divorce support group in Sandy Springs can help you by exploring the struggles you’re facing, identifying whether or not those problems can be resolved, creating a realistic picture of what life would look like after divorce, and how your children could be affected and protected. In the process of answering these questions, a divorce support group helps you work towards acceptance and forgiveness.

What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
Sandy Springs Support Groups and Group Therapy both offer a safe place to explore important issues. It is important, however, to understand the difference between the two.

Group therapy in Sandy Springs is led by a therapist, group psychotherapist, or group counselor, and is generally structured around an issue. The therapist guides the group through a program as the group works together to better understand thoughts and feelings. Experienced therapists lead psychotherapy groups for various ages, such as adults, and specific issues including anger management, anxiety, and coping skills.

Support groups in Sandy Springs are usually facilitated by a therapist or counselor, but can also be led by members with lived experiences. Generally, a support group is less structured than a therapy group. Support groups bring together members to provide support and strength to each other, often around a common challenge such as addiction or grief.

Most therapy groups will meet for a fixed length of time with a consistent group of members, while many support groups meet for an indefinite period of time with members coming and going.
