Westchester Group Works (WGW) was developed to provide the community with a center for group therapy. It is a center or hub where group therapy community resources are available and attainable for the public, practitioners and service providers. We developed our “Growing with Groups” program to make available a group experience specifically designed to meet the individual therapeutic and developmental needs of children, adolescents, tweens, teens, young adults and adults.
WGW is unique because of the way that its therapy groups are purposefully and thoughtfully tailored. Group topics are derived from the identified needs of the community WGW serves. In addition, periodically we conduct a needs assessment and survey practitioners as well as people in the community so that we may continue to update our group therapy offerings so they are pertinent, up-to-date and responsive to the community’s needs.
