Ahavah provides a variety of group therapy, for the trainees and their parents.
The group work makes it possible to experience social interactions, to learn from the experiences of others, to feel a connection with others also facing similar problems and to sense that they belong.
Group therapy has a strong impact because peer groups have such a strong effect on a child.
Group therapy and group psychotherapyprovide psychological treatment methods where one or more therapists treat a small group of numerous patients together, as a guided group. In a boarding school, the term refers to any type of therapy delivered in a group format, including cognitive behavioral therapy, expressive and creative therapy, psychodrama, and more.
