Groups - Therapist Chris McKee | Denver, Colorado CO

Group Therapy

Business people hands stacked in a pile. A symbol of teamwork and trust.

Ready to experience more depth and connection with others?

Process groups are designed to explore the ways you relate to people and to access your social self–the part of you that shows up when you are around people. You will explore your present moment experience, including feelings, thoughts and behaviors. In a therapy group, unlike most social situations, you have the opportunity to receive feedback from others about how they see you.
 
And you get to see what happens when you try out new ways of interacting.
 
For example, you might practice asking for what you want, or setting boundaries. You might ask other people how they feel when you are speaking. If you tend to avoid conflict, you might experiment with confronting someone in the group.
 
The possibilities are endless!
 
In a group, you will get to the core of social blocks that are harder to see during one on one interactions. You will learn where you stop yourself from engaging more deeply with others and explore ways to deepen your connections. You probably learned your social patterns in groups, whether in peer groups or family interactions, and you can heal them by having new experiences in groups.

 Denver Men’s Group Starting Soon!

There are still a couple of spots left in a new Denver men’s group in the Capitol Hill neighborhood!
 
The group will give you a chance to talk about difficult issues that really matter, such as parenthood, being single, married life, workplace difficulties, and relationships with family?
 
It will also give you a chance to get support from other men in a culture where we men often get most of our support from women. And it provides the opportunity to get diverse opinions on topics and share insight and help other men.
 

About the Group

This group will be a process group. This means we will go deeply into issues that are troubling each member in order to provide support and also to increase awareness and transform self-limiting patterns. It will be a laboratory in which you can explore how you show up in relationships and how you are experienced by others. It will also be a place to get support from other men and talk about important issues that are not discussed in social settings.
 
Ideal candidates for this group are adult men interested in learning about themselves and exploring what it means to be a man in today’s rapidly changing world. It is recommended that group members have some degree of self-awareness and experience with psychotherapy or personal growth practices.
 
Here are some themes we will cover:
  • Each individual’s patterns in interacting in groups, as influenced by family and peer history.
  • Social anxiety, awkwardness, etc.
  • Exploration of conscious, intentional masculinity and creating a purpose driven life.
  • Deepening responsibility for our lives, choosing to become our best and living in integrity.
  • Ways that we relate to other men
  • Exploring differences between masculinity as dominance vs. centeredness and integrity
 

Logistics

Beginning November or December 2016
 
Monday or Thursday Evenings 6:30-8:00pm
 
Limited to a maximum of 8 men.
 
We will need to have at least 5 members before we start. As soon as we have enough guys, we will get started—the sooner the better. I am open to running two groups simultaneously if there is enough interest.
 
Each prospective member will meet with me individually for 30-60 minutes to determine whether they are a good fit for the group. This will give everyone a chance to ask questions and learn about how the group will run before making a commitment.
 
The group will be a closed group. The group will be open to new members for the first few weeks. Once we get to a certain number of men committed to the group, the group will close to new members until someone leaves the group. This allows us to deepen without the makeup of the group changing too frequently.
