A portion of this group will provide psychoeducation on the triggers and origins of anxiety. Once group members become aware of the triggers and origins to their anxiety the group can begin to normalize the experience and explore how they are coping.
The group will identify coping into two categories of healthy and non-healthy coping and will decide if some of their coping can be swapped out for better choices.
The next portion of the group will focus on skills building in which members are introduced to tools and techniques such as grounding techniques which help them to “ground” themselves when feeling anxious so they can be mindful and present. This portion will also help identify the thoughts that precipitate the anxiety and ways to reframe the thoughts so that the anxiety is lessened.
The member will focus on their thought patterns and be able to identify which patterns are most troublesome for them and in which environment they show up. The more the members can anticipate the environment that triggers their anxiety and the thoughts that will be experienced the more they can prepare themselves for the triggering environment and consider ways to counterattack the negative self-talk.
