Group Therapy

Group therapy provides an opportunity for clients to engage in a unique therapeutic space where individuals who are likely experiencing similar circumstances come together for various purposes.  KS Services, LLC works to create an environment in each group setting where members of the group feel supported and safe to explore a variety of topics together in a way that benefits all members involved.

Confidentiality in a Group Setting - Limitations & Expecations

While confidentiality and trust are an important part of the group process, confidentiality in a group setting cannot be guaranteed. While the clinician leading the group is bound legally and ethically to maintain confidentiality, group members are not bound by the same professional codes. Groups work best when there is open and honest communication among members and that is achieved when all members feel safe and protected. Group members will be advised on how to maintain confidentiality for their peers. However, confidentiality cannot be absolutely guaranteed due to the nature of the group setting. As with individual therapy, confidentiality will be broken if there is clinician concern that a client is a danger to themselves or others. If a client in a group is working with an individual therapist within the KS Services practice or with a clinician at another practice, a release of information must be signed for the group facilitator to connect with the client’s individual therapist. 

Attendance & Payment

Group therapy is most beneficial when a client is attending consistently. It is expected that clients attend regularly.  If a client is unable to attend, it is helpful for the clinician to be notified ahead of time via email. Attendance policies and payment costs may vary depending upon the group type. 

Community Connect

This is a session by session commitment.  Each group member’s credit card on file will be charged only if the session is attended.

Emotional Literacy Group

This is a session by session commitment.  Each group member’s credit card on file will be charged only if the session is attended.

High School Process Group

This is billed on the day of the session. When you sign up for our process group, you are committing to the entire semester with one excused absence.  After one excused absence, you will be charged for any missed sessions even if you are unable to attend that evening.  KS Services will provide you with a monthly superbill should you decide you would like to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement.

Intake & Withdrawal

A thirty-minute phone intake will be required for all psychotherapy groups. The intake provides an opportunity for the lead clinician to assess appropriate group placement for each individual wishing to join a group at KS Services. Group therapy is a beneficial part of the therapeutic process, but success largely depends upon the appropriateness of each group for the client. If the facilitating clinician finds that a client has been placed in a group that is not therapeutically appropriate, the client will be asked to pause the group and follow other recommendations from their clinician.  At that time, any sessions not attended will be fully refunded.
