The first group therapy appointment just like the first day of school. You get a bunch of hand-outs and get an idea of where group therapy is going. So, it wasn’t really anything unexpected. It’s split into two parts, learning of skills (unfortunately, this is less useful for me as it’s something that’s also gone over in both abnormal psych and counseling classes that I have taken).
The second part still makes me incredibly nervous… the exposure therapy.
Thankfully there was no actual exposure therapy this time around… namely because I couldn’t think of just one incident that was major… I have several. So, now I get to spend my time thinking about what I think is the most significant. Not something I want to have to do, but it’s something that’s important.
I know this is just the beginning.
