Strength-Based Support Groups
If you're looking for Strength-Based Therapy in Oakland or for an Oakland Strength-Based Therapy Support Group these Support Groups provide Strength Based counseling. Strength-based therapy is a type of positive psychotherapy and counseling that focuses more on your internal strengths and resourcefulness, and less on weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. This focus sets up a positive mindset that helps you build on you best qualities, find your strengths, improve resilience and change worldview to one that is more positive. A positive attitude, in turn, can help your expectations of yourself and others become more reasonable.

Oakland Support Groups and Group Therapy
Group therapy takes many forms. The groups are variously referred to (often interchangeably) as Oakland counseling groups, Oakland support groups, Oakland mutual support groups or peer support groups, self help groups, stress coping groups, workshops and mental health groups. They are moderated by a professional group counselor, group therapist or group psychologist and generally focus on a specific issue or client profile (e.g. men or women etc).

Before joining a Oakland support group, first see if the group's issue focus is consistent with your needs. If there are no groups offering support around your issue, feel free to contact these professionals in Oakland to ask for a referral to alternative groups nearby.
