What to expect in a San Luis Obispo County group?
In a professionally operated support group in San Luis Obispo County, members provide each other with various types of help for a particular shared issue. The help takes the form of relating personal experiences and listening to and accepting others' experiences. San Luis Obispo County group members may also provide a sympathetic understanding and a social network.
Group Therapists or group counselors lead or facilitate the group and provide group counseling in San Luis Obispo County.
