Group Therapy Q & A

What are the benefits of group therapy?

Group therapy at Thriving Mind Psychology offers several unique benefits. For instance, group therapy is an affordable option, often costing about half of an individual session.

Also, group therapy can help you understand that you aren’t alone and that other people face the same struggles as you. People with similar issues can better support one another and offer each other additional guidance based on their personal experiences.

Group therapy also helps you develop your interpersonal skills. As you work with the people in your group, you begin to develop healthy ways to relate and communicate effectively. These relational skills are useful when dealing with the dynamics of families, workplace environments, and society as a whole, and make daily interactions much more manageable.

Which conditions can be addressed with group therapy?

Group therapy is helpful for many different emotional and mental health concerns, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Substance abuse
  • Trauma
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Anger management
  • Self-confidence issues

Group therapy can also help you cope with challenging life events and help you manage stress in your work or personal relationships.

What should I expect during a group therapy session?

Group therapy at Thriving Mind Psychology is conducted by the same highly trained therapists and psychologists as individual therapy. Typically, each group session has a theme determined by the practitioner or the members of the group. Your group leader begins by explaining the topic and introducing some ideas for the group to consider. 

Your practitioner may ask questions or give the group some prompts to help start the discussion. Members are encouraged, but not required, to speak at each session. 

Your practitioner monitors the discussion, answers questions, and offers information when pertinent. Disagreements may occur and are an essential aspect of group therapy. When necessary, the therapist or psychologist acts as a mediator during differences to help the group find resolution and process negative emotions.

Group therapy can help you feel more confident about yourself and the way you interact with others. To schedule a consultation for group therapy, call Thriving Mind Psychology today or make an appointment online.
