Group psychotherapy is a special form of therapy in which a small number of people meet together with a trained therapist to help themselves and one another. This therapy can help people with a wide range of life problems and has been a standard treatment option for over 50 years.
Group therapy provides a safe and supportive setting for you to come together with others who share similar problems or concerns. It can help you to:
- learn more about yourself
- develop better relationships
- clarify changes you want to make in your life
- work through problems and practice new behaviors
- receive support and feedback from others
- improve your quality of life
Research shows that groups can be as effective and sometimes even more effective than individual therapy. In cases of medical illness, there is substantial evidence that group therapy helps people cope better with their illness and enhances the quality of their lives. In some cases, such as breast cancer, group therapy even helps people live longer.
