Show Notes

Why we should all give group therapy a go!

  • Group therapy is often stereotyped and overlooked as a way to deal with challenges in your life, but it can offer a variety of benefits if you are willing to try it.
  • It offers a chance to experiment with real emotions and aspects of your life.
  • It helps you notice issues and habitual patterns in your life.
  • You can try different responses and different behaviors in group that you might not feel comfortable doing in your everyday life and relationships.
  • The other people in the group can offer a variety of different views and perspectives to help you work through things.
  • You can say things honestly to others with the knowledge that everyone will return next week, and you can continue to work through difficulties. This can provide security!
  • It provides you with a sense of community and belonging. It can really help with issues of social isolation.
  • It can provide stability that is not always present in personal life.
