Women’s Stress & Emotion Management Counseling Program

Since 2005, Dr. Reddan, PhD, LCSW and Applied Behavioral Sciences have been facilitating a highly-productive all-women’s emotions and behavior supportive counseling program. The program includes dynamic, insightful individual and group psychotherapy.

This group is an excellent resource to assist in overcoming the following stressors and issues that are faced by today’s modern woman:

  • Stress Management
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety management
  • Depression Management
  • Relationship management
  • Parenting skills
  • Life Skills
  • Bereavement
  • Addictions and impulsive behaviors
  • Sexuality
  • Loneliness
  • Trauma
  • Abuse
  • Divorce
  • Unemployment
  • Family Issues
  • Parenting Difficulties
  • Changes in Health or Lifestyle

Applied Behavioral Science’s all women’s emotions and behavior supportive counseling program is solely for women and women’s issues. ABS’s goals and purposes for group therapy are as follows:

  • Universality
    • When group members share experiences and feelings with one another, it serves to decrease the amount of tension and feelings of isolation that individual group members may have when they first walk in.


  • Altruism
    • Group therapy offers a chance for each of the group members to help one another.


  • Instillation of Hope
    • Each group has members at various stages of recovery, and those members who are farther along are able to offer other members hope and inspiration with their own recovery process experiences.


  • Imparting Information
    • More experienced and knowledgeable group members who’ve been with the recovery process a little longer might be able to offer some pieces of advice and useful information to the other, less-experienced members.


  • Corrective Recapitulation of the Primary Family Experience
    • Group members often subconsciously associate the therapist and other group members with their own family, and the positive feelings they will get through group therapy will thus be transferred to their own family, improving the exterior relationships.


  • Development of Socializing Techniques
    • The group environment allows members to extend themselves by developing social relationships with others in the group, thus increasing their self-confidence.


  • Imitative Behavior
    • Group members can also improve their interpersonal and social skills in group therapy by emulating the therapist and other group members in endeavors such as sharing personal feelings and being supportive of others.


  • Cohesiveness
    • Human beings have the instinctive need to socialize and be part of a group, and some studies have shown that the recovery process cannot truly begin until the patients are in some sort of interpersonal setting.


  • Existential Factors
    • Group therapy helps its members learn to take responsibility for their own lives and accept the consequences of their own decisions, which is one of the initial stepping stones in the recovery process.


  • Catharsis
    • Catharsis is defined as the experience of relief from emotional distress through the free and uninhibited expression of emotion, and what better way to relieve oneself of emotional stress than to vent your feelings to a supportive audience found in a group therapy session.


  • Interpersonal Learning
    • Group members learn much more about themselves when other group members give them feedback on their behavior.


  • Self-Understanding
    • Similar to Interpersonal Learning, group members gain a greater perspective of their own problems and behaviors.
