Group Work

The Cambridge Center for Change offers Couples Groups (PDF)

The Cambridge Center for Change offers a variety of groups with both a therapeutic and psychoeducational focus. We believe in the healing power of community and have witnessed the effectiveness of people serving as a resource and support to one another.

Childhood Trauma Recovery Group
A three year structured, experientially based trauma group for men and women who grew up in dysfunctional families and as adults want to find a safe place to join with others to heal. The first goal of the group is to grieve the loss of a normal childhood and finish unresolved issues with one’s parents through the use of structured, experiential exercises. The second goal is to re-parent the inner child. Participants learn basic intimacy skills, conflict resolution skills, and ways of changing conditioned patterns of behavior.

Divorced and Separated Grief Group
"Divorce no longer carries its old stigma in our society, but it hurts as much as ever."
- Sharon Wegschieder-Cruse
