What to expect in a Chittenden County group?
In a professionally operated support group in Chittenden 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. Chittenden 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 Chittenden County. They are sometimes specifically trained in group dynamics and the understanding of small group processes.
