Benefits of Group Therapy
Initially, a benefit for the patient is the realization that other individuals endure the same problems. Also, the group setting helps and allows new skills to flourish when relating to others. These new skills attained in group can be used outside the group in everyday life. In addition, group members can offer support for each other, and can offer suggestions dealing with particular problems.
What to Expect
The sessions for Group Therapy may vary depending on the category and age group targeted; however, the basic format is a small group of patients (no more than ten) meet on a regular basis to address feelings, problems, and provide mutual support. The session is guided by a professional therapist, who acts as moderator and will suggest the theme or topic of that session, along with special activities.
