Group therapy offers the opportunity to address issues, concerns, and problems in an interpersonal setting with peers and a therapist leader. Group therapy provides a safe place to work on relationships, intimacy, and self-esteem. It can be an invaluable therapy resource.

What are the benefits of group therapy?

  • Group can afford the opportunity to “be real” with others in an environment of safety and respect.
  • Group can counteract feelings of isolation and a sense of being alone with one’s feelings.    
  • Members are able to try out new behaviors.
  • Group can provide members with diverse views, responses, and feedback.
  • In group, members often see their “usual” patterns of relating to people, allowing for an opportunity to challenge these patterns.
  • Group can allow members the chance to explore and better understand themselves.
  • In group, members can learn new social techniques, ways of relating, and how to better cope with difficulties.
