What issues can TheraHive help with?
Our aim is to help students realize an array of personal growth objectives. Whether it's increasing joy, enhancing relationships, boosting self-esteem, improving decision-making, or cultivating resilience, our courses are here to support you. We also provide pathways to elevate your mood, reduce stress, improve focus, enhance your coping skills, and heighten emotional intelligence. Our ultimate goal is to help you achieve richer life satisfaction and effectively manage anxiety. As we continue to expand our offerings, you're encouraged to explore our upcoming courses and join the waitlist for those that resonate with your personal goals.
Can TheraHive replace face-to-face individual therapy?
Our service is not intended to replace individual therapy. That said, for many students psychoeducational learning is enough to address their goals. In other cases, they supplement individual therapy with our courses.
What are psychoeducational groups?
We know, “psychoeducational” is a mouthful. These groups are interactive classes that teach you how to improve your mental health. They are based on methods that have been scientifically proven to work. These groups are great for anyone and everyone, no matter what you're going through, and they're one of the best ways to learn skills that can help you attain your goals and enhance your well-being.
What is blended learning (and a flipped classroom)?
Blended learning is a mix of online and live learning experiences. A "flipped classroom" is where the traditional home practice and lecture elements are reversed. Students are first introduced to new topics through self-paced learning, then, the in-class time is dedicated to exploring these topics more deeply.
At TheraHive, you’ll be introduced to skills at your own pace and in whatever way is best for you, whether that’s watching videos from experts, reading about the research behind the skills, or doing interactive exercises. Then you’ll attend live sessions where you’ll deep-dive, problem-solve, and get personal feedback that drives results.
How many people are in your hives (groups) ?
Sometimes small is better, we limit the size of our groups, or 'hives,' to six to ten participants. This size ensures that everyone is fully engaged and gets personal attention from our coaches. Also, there's a wealth of research that suggests this is the optimal size for learning mental health skills.
Are your hives (groups) private and confidential, and can I be anonymous?
Absolutely! At TheraHive, we take every possible measure to ensure as much privacy as possible. This includes backend systems that comply with many of the same standards set by The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), as well as contracts that students sign to respect each other's confidentiality. You can choose whatever name you want in our system, and your full name and contact information will never be shared. Finally, you can even use video filters to hide your identity.
How many hours of work are required each week?
Our courses are crafted with your busy schedule in mind. Each week, expect to commit roughly an hour to self-guided study, and another hour participating in a live session. It's manageable, flexible, and tailored to accommodate your lifestyle.
What is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)?
DBT, short for Dialectical Behavior Therapy, is an empowering method of personal development, created by Dr. Marsha Linehan. It's known for its high effectiveness in catering to a diverse array of needs. DBT emerged from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is also renowned for its substantial research support. Our courses, led by trained coaches, follow the same well-established research and skills that are integrated into DBT.
Do you accept insurance?
We do not currently accept insurance, or handle insurance claims.
What is your refund policy?
Once you're enrolled in a course, refunds aren't offered. This is because we do not allow new members to join a group after it's started. The one exception is if we need to cancel a class or reschedule it. Thank you for understanding how this supports our commitment to your learning journey.
