Self-Love Recovery Specific Group Therapy
Facilitated by Ross Rosenberg

Ross Rosenberg, M.Ed., CADC

Self-Love Recovery Institute is pleased to announce that Ross Rosenberg is now providing Self-Love Recovery Program (SLRP) specific Group Psychotherapy. This treatment opportunity is a much-needed and welcomed addition to SLRI's treatment options. In addition to being a trained and accomplished group therapist, Ross has an intuitive feel for its unique processes.

Self-Love Recovery Program's Group Psychotherapy is an exclusive opportunity offered to those who desire to transition from individual to group therapy or those who would benefit from both modalities. To maximize the therapeutic impact, no more than six people will be included in each group.



Professionally administered SLRP Group Psychotherapy can achieve therapeutic and clinical goals that are either impossible or exceedingly difficult to accomplish in individual psychotherapy. It is common for some people to prefer concurrent participation in both therapy modalities, as, in combination, progress in the SLRP Treatment process is expedited. In other words, SLRP Group Therapy may boost your chances of making valuable, lasting changes.

Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. Group members are almost always surprised by how rewarding the group experience can be, and in a short amount of time, you'll most likely view your group as a valuable and trusted source of support. Groups help to ease that sense of isolation and give the opportunity to practice re-engaging with people.

  10. For some, the first experience of being oneself, without worrying about anyone else.
  11. Practice/learn more effective social and communication skills.

  • Although SLRP treats the trauma responsible for Self-Love Deficit Disorder/SLDD (codependency), it is not a treatment program for most other trauma disorders.
  • Having “self-love deficiency” is not the same as being an SLD.  Numerous other mental health challenges include such a deficit.  Ongoing treatment/acceptance into SLRP Group Psychotherapy is not guaranteed.
  • Acceptance into SLRP is determined if a person is a codependent/SLD as specified in “The Human Magnet Syndrome” book.  Therefore, the book must be read prior to the initial meeting.
  • During the initial session, prospective clients are evaluated for SLDD, and if they can benefit from SLRP.
  • SLRP Group Therapy acceptance is not guaranteed. At the end of the initial session, Ross will share his evaluation and recommendations.
