Elizabeth A Warson's Groups

Self-Identity Group for Adolescents

Conflict in relation to identity formation is often the root of adolescent cognitive dissonance, a state of disequilibrium. This group explores cultural and social factors involved in identity formation with an emphasis on peer support and “witnessing” techniques in the co-construction of healthy verbal and visual narratives of self. Group goals: From a narrative and experiential framework, group members will deconstruct “myths” and misconceptions about self-identity to co-create healthy narratives of self.

More about this group

Grief and Loss Group for Children

Nonverbal forms of communication are essential in the processing of grief and loss with young and elementary school age children. This art-based group incorporates the creation of sculptural memorials/altars, visual legacies through phototherapy and collage techniques, box art as a form of containment and sense of safety, as well as an ongoing visual exploration of the meaning of grief and loss. Group goals: Using gestalt art therapy techniques, group members will utilize the art process to explore “here and now experiences” to support children grieving.
