Frequently Asked Questions About Therapy Groups and Classes
What is the difference between a therapy group and a class?
Classes--A class has a single fee at the beginning of the course. Although the class is taught by a therapist, it is simply a self-help course so there is no paperwork that is filled out and no therapy notes written. Clients register for the course and a pay a one-time non-refundable fee before beginning the course. The class will meet weekly for a 4-week period. If you missed registration for a current class, you will need to wait and register for the next class.
Group Therapy/Group Counseling-- Group sessions are a continuation of therapy. Therapy notes will be kept for each group counseling session as part of your client record. For us to be able to provide optimal care, you will need to come to one individual assessment session before attending your first group so the therapist can get to know you and your specific situation and make sure that a group will be the right fit for you. After completing an assessment and upon therapist approval, you can begin attending your therapy group. Therapy groups meet once a weekly and any fees due will be collected at the time of service. There is no specific end date to the group, you may join the group at any time during the cycle and continue doing group as long as you would like.
If I can't make a group or class meeting, do I need to call and cancel?
No, you do not need to call our office to cancel a group or class meeting. However, if you are attending a group or class because it is required either by court order, probation, or other mandated reason, it may be helpful to you to have a reason for missing a meeting on record. There are no late cancel or no show fees for groups and classes, however if you miss a class meeting, since the class fee is due in full at registration, you will just be forfeiting that portion for the class fee. You will NOT get a refund for any class meeting missed.
