The Social Work Program offers individual sessions of brief solution-focused therapy to patients of the Chatham-Kent Family Health Team who are over the age of 12. Skilled counsellors will meet with patients who would like to obtain a positive mental health outlook. Patients are required to attend all necessary sessions which occur over a two month period. Sessions will focus on topics such as:
• Stress Management
• Work related issues
• Self-Esteem Enhancement
• Grief, Loss, Adjustment
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy classes are also offered to patients who belong to the Chatham-Kent Family Health Team. Groups are led by skilled counsellors and meet patients for two hours a week for eight weeks. This is an educational class that focuses on teaching individual goal setting, understanding thoughts and emotions, stress management, coping with anxiety and worry, and creating a balanced life.
Please talk to your Health Care Provider, if you would like a referral for either individual or group counselling. PLEASE NOTE: Social Work documents become part of your medical records.
