A form of psychotherapy in which one or more therapists work with a group of people at the same time is known as group therapy. This sort of therapy can be found in a number of places, including private therapeutic practices, hospitals, mental health clinics, and community centers.
Group therapy is sometimes used on its own, but it is most often part of a larger treatment plan that includes individual therapy. Depending on your mental health condition and the clinical procedure employed during the therapy, group therapy can be classified into various forms.
Forms of Group Therapy
- Cognitive behavioral therapy, which focuses on identifying and correcting incorrect or distorted thought processes, emotional responses, and behaviors.
- Psychoeducational groups, which focus on educating clients about their disorders and ways of coping, often based on the principles of cognitive behavior therapy
- Interpersonal groups, which focus on your interpersonal relationships and social interactions, including how much support you have from others and the impact these relationships have on your mental health (CBT)
- Support groups, which provide a wide range of benefits for people with a variety of mental health conditions as well as their loved ones
How can group therapy help?
Group therapy helps people to benefit from the encouragement and support of their peers. Participants in the group can see that others are going through similar experiences, which might make them feel less alone. Members of the group can serve as role models for other members. Other members of the group can realize that there is hope for healing by watching someone effectively deal with an issue. As each person advances, they can become a role model and a source of encouragement for others. This can help you feel more successful and accomplished. Group therapy is frequently quite inexpensive. Instead of focusing on only one client at a time, the therapist can focus on a larger number of clients.
