GPS Groups incorporate evidence-based approaches of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and Psychosocial Education in a warm and accessible group model. GPS groups are deliberately judgement and advice-free zones where people can be listened to with respect. Participants heal, find their strength and connect with their courage to take conscious steps towards the lives they want to live.
I have led groups for my entire career but never before have I found a model that matches the cadence of my heart. It incorporates a social justice focus in an accessible, welcoming way that both facilitators and group members can embrace.Meredith Pesce, Program Manager, Recovery Residences, Portland ME
The GPS Model works. It is a powerful community resource, a lifeline of support, validation, perspective and healing that is missing in many people’s lives. GPS also supports group facilitators by providing a reliable structure and road map for us to use when serving the people we care about.Andrea Guzman, Maya Health Alliance
Many of us have been leading postpartum groups for moms for years, but without a structure to follow, we were just winging it. GPS is a treasure box and is changing the way we are supporting moms in Arizona.Carol Sheehan, RN Tucson Postpartum Depression Task Force
