Group Therapy

Group Therapy :
In Group Therapy a therapist works with multiple individuals at the same time. Group sessions are generally about 90 minutes.

Some of the benefits to Group Therapy include:
  • Exploring issues in a social context more accurately reflects real life
  • An opportunity to observe and reflect on your own and other’ social skills
  • An opportunity to benefit both through active participation and through observation
  • An opportunity to give and receive immediate feedback about concerns, issues, and problems affecting one’s life
  • Group Therapy members benefit by working through personal issues in a supportive, confidential environment and by helping others to work through theirs
You can participate in your own way at your own pace, but it is generally helpful to share your own thoughts, feelings and experiences, and to take an active interest in other members. The group therapist will usually encourage your participation, and comment on interactions and relationships in the group sessions. If you find something difficult or unpleasant in a group session you should do your best to talk openly about it in group, because working through these challenges is a big part of the group therapy process.
