What is Group Therapy?
Group therapy is a unique and powerful option for therapy. It provides a safe and non-judgmental setting to explore personal issues with others who share the same struggles and experiences as you.
What to Expect in Group Therapy
Often group therapy sessions are scheduled weekly for a fixed period of time and are between one to two hours in length. Depending on the group, the therapist will facilitate open as well as directed group discussion and sharing, lead specialized experiential activities and share helpful educational information. Therapist may also give out worksheets and other assignments to complete for the next session.
What is the Benefit of Group Therapy?
At first the process of sharing your feelings and thoughts with others in a group can be intimidating and even scary. However participants in group therapy often remark that in realizing that they aren’t alone, but rather can share and relate to the stories of others was is most powerful element of the group experience. In the company of others, you can offer and receive feedback, learn how to better communicate and offer empathy to one another. This can allow you to gain new perspectives on your situation, find strength and receive encouragement to take important steps towards positive change in your life.
Not only will you gain the support and understanding from the therapist as well as the other group members, you will see that you can also be a source of support and strength for others.
