The Arlington program consists of a variety of therapy groups—process groups, some using evocative materials, as well as psycho-educational, socialization and therapeutic recreational groups. The program is designed to provide a balance between self-focus and moving outward to enable effective interaction with others and in the community. Our aim is to invite clients into a safe arena that will enable them to do the personal work necessary for accessing more of their potential as they move in the world.
Our program runs Monday through Friday, from 10-5pm.
Most groups meet at the Arlington, however, socialization and therapeutic recreational groups often involve outings to a wide range of locations in the beautiful Santa Barbara area. Some groups are ongoing, and clients can choose to join or end their participation as best suits their needs. Other groups run for a defined period of time and the general expectation is that members will remain for the duration of the group.
