Common Questions

How can therapeutic and career workshops help me?
 
A number of benefits yield positive outcomes from participating in therapeutic workshops.  Obtaining the necessary skill sets to promote your personal growth is necessary.  FOCUS Group Solutions workshops do not replace therapy.  The workshops are conducted using a cohort framework that rely on the "group process".   

The workshops help to foster:
  
  • A better understanding of self, personal goals and values
  • Develop skills for improving your relationships
  • Finding resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to attend workshops
  • Learning new ways to systemically address your personal growth
  • Improve communication and listening skills
  • Identify old behavior patterns and develop new ones
  • Discover new ways to solve problems
  • Improve your self-esteem and boosting self-confidence

Do I really need to attend a workshop?  I'm usually a self-starter and can handle my problems.  
  
Everyone encounters challenging situations, and while you may have successfully navigated through difficulties faced, seeking additional resources for extra support may be necessary.  The workshops are for those with enough self-awareness to realize additional resources are available. The workshops provide long-lasting benefits and support, giving clients the tools needed to avoid negative decision making, re-direct damaging patterns of behavior, and overcome challenges. 


Why do people attend workshops and what are the benefits?

People have many different motivations for attending our workshops.   Some may experience major life transitions (unemployment, divorce, new job, etc.), and are not equipped with the tools to overcome.  Agencies and local organizations seek workshops to ensure their employees, clients and partnering agencies acquire the knowledge and tools necessary to be successful in the workplace and to promote self-growth. 

  
What are the workshops like?
 
The workshops are facilitated using a standard workshop structure aligned with FOCUS Group Solutions unique approach.  Workshops are held in different environments depending on the the topic of the workshop.  Participants that fully commit to the workshops receive the best results. Transferring the lessons learned into your life, is one of the benefits of participating in the workshops. In some instances the facilitator may suggest activities outside of the workshop to support your progresses - such as reading, noting an action plan and homework integrated projects.  Participants of the workshops are ready to make positive life changes and open to new perspectives while applying the "take charge" approach to live a more structured and organized lifestyle.   
 
   
Since this is not therapy, Do you take insurance, and how does that work?
 
No we do not accept insurance for workshops, but if you are an individual looking for family workshops as a skills builder we would be happy to discuss payment options.
